Samsung recently disclosed that the Galaxy S9 and S9+ flagships would be launched at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona next month. Before then, the 2018 Galaxy S flagships were expected to be unveiled at CES 2018 but that didn’t happen. The Galaxy series was earlier rumoured to include a Galaxy X flagship but that isn’t likely going to happen. Samsung just can’t afford to look like they are imitating Apple. Now, here is a summary of the likely specs of the Galaxy S9 and S9+ as revealed by Chinese tech blog ifanr.com.
According to the details, the Galaxy S9 is expected to pack a 5.8-inch Super AMOLED display while the S9+ will pack a 6.2-inch Super AMOLED screen. Both models will be powered by a Snapdragon 845 chipset as well as an Exynos 9810 chip on some models. The two models are expected to be available in 4GB RAM + 64GB storage variant as well as 6GB RAM + 128GB storage and both are expandable.
The details also include that the Galaxy S9 will present with a 12MP single camera with f/1.5 aperture and OIS. While the Galaxy S9+ will come with a dual camera set up comprised of two 12MP sensors with f/2.4 and f/1.5 apertures respectively as well as double OIS. Both models are tipped to pack an 8MP selfie camera with f/1.7 aperture. Other expected features on both models include Cat 18 LTE band, Bluetooth, NFC, USB-C port, dual SIM cards and dual standby and so on. These specs are consistent with those on the retail box which appeared online recently.
