South Korean tech giant Samsung is just a couple of weeks short of launching its 2018 flagship Galaxy S9 and S9+. Both models are already billed to make their grand entrance at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2018 holding from February 26 to March 1 in Barcelona. Ahead of its official unveiling, we may just have spotted a real live photo of the Galaxy S9 which appeared in a short video clip recently uploaded on Weibo.
The short clip appears to be a test video and it only shows the on-screen keyboard being tested. The view affords us an opportunity to see the front screen with its much-reduced bezels. The side bezels are almost non-existent while the bottom edge which is visible features an ultra-thin bezel. Same also applies to the top bezels but that isn’t very visible here. We hope to see more leaks as the launch date draws closer.
The Galaxy S9 is expected to feature 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 Galaxy S9 is expected to sport a single 12MP rear camera with f/1.5 aperture and OIS. On its part, the Galaxy S9+is tipped to 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 expected to feature an 8MP selfie camera with f/1.7 aperture. The Galaxy S9 and S9+ recently got 3C certification and the listing confirmed they will both come with 9V /1.67A and 5V / 2A fast charge support similar to those of the Galaxy S8 series. There is also a 3,000mAh battery on the S9 while the S9+ packs a 3,500mAh battery. Follow the source link to watch the test video on Weibo.
