Fans of Samsung are definitely counting down to the release of the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+. Most of the specs are already known, save for the battery capacity until now.
The leak comes from ANATEL, Brazil’s equivalent of the FCC, where it appears the phones were getting certified. Screenshots provided show that the Galaxy S9 will have a 3000mAh battery while the bigger Galaxy S9+ will have a 3500mAh battery.
Do the above figures sound familiar? Yes, and that is because those are the exact capacities for the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+. This shouldn’t come as much of a surprise as earlier rumors have revealed that the differences between the new Galaxy S9/S9+ and the Galaxy S8/S8+ will not be much.
While the battery capacities and screen sizes have stayed the same, there are still a number of features to be excited for. Both new phones will be getting new cameras with variable apertures. The S9+ will even be getting an extra camera sensor.
There is also the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 and Exynos 9810. Both chips bring improved performance over last year’s models.
The Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ have been confirmed to launch at MWC next month. Pre-orders should begin shortly after with sales commencing in March.
