Samsung Galaxy S9: Everything We Know So Far

Samsung just had one of the best years in the smartphone industry and the South Korean giant is in no mood to slow down next year. The upcoming flagship from the company – Galaxy S9 – is making all kinds of headlines these days and through this article, I will try to break down everything which has possibly been on the internet about the next generation Galaxy S series smartphone from Samsung.

 

Samsung Galaxy S9: Specifications

There has not been much specifics out just yet but we can surely guess some of the prominent ones. The latest FCC Certification confirms that the Galaxy S9 will come with the model number SM-G960F while the Plus variant will come with the model number SM-G965F.

 

Both the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus are likely to be run on Qualcomm’s latest silicone – Snapdragon 845 or company’s in-house Exynos 9810 chipset in some select markets. In terms of the design, a recent report from VentureBeat claims that the Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus will feature the same 5.8-inch and 6.2-inch AMOLED QHD+ curved displays with the top and bottom bezels now even narrowed down making up for a larger screen-to-body ratio.

Apart from the larger screen and battery, the Plus variant is also expected to feature more RAM (2GB more than the regular Galaxy S9) and a dual camera setup which was kind of expected given how the trend grew up in 2017. Samsung could also include 1,000 fps video recording capabilities for some serious slow-motion shots. Further, the fingerprint scanner now appears to have found its ideal place just underneath the camera. Sadly, the Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus are not likely to feature ‘under the display’ fingerprint scanner which is expected to be all cooked up by the time Note 9 launches in late 2018.

 

Despite recent rumours suggesting otherwise, Samsung is likely to stick with its current 2D facial recognition mechanism while I won’t be surprised if it is now more accurate and fast. The Iris scanner, meanwhile, is also expected to get both software and hardware upgrade. AKG is still expected to play an important role in terms of audio as both the Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus are likely to come AKG tuned speakers along with a pair of headsets inside the box.

 

As for the software, Samsung Galaxy S9 will come with the latest Android 8.0 Oreo and Bixby might be in full shape this time. I hope it is not as buggy it was last year.

 

 

Samsung Galaxy S9: Price

The Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus launched at Rs 57,900 ($725) and Rs 64,900 ($825) respectively. If we go by the past trend, the Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus are likely to cost more even though they are incremental updates to their predecessors. I am calling it a Rs 60,000+ price point this time around and I hope Samsung surprises me with a similar or lower price tag. What do you think? Let us know in the comment section below.

 

Samsung Galaxy S9: Release Date

Now, this is where all the talking is being done on the internet. An earlier report claimed that the Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus might make its way to the world as early as CES 2018 which kickstarts next week. However, other reports claim that while the company might tease the device at the upcoming CES 2018, it is expected to officially announce the device sometime in March at a separate Unpacked event. Then we have reports coming from Bloomberg, The Bell which claims that Samsung is likely to launch both the Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus sometime in February with sales beginning a month later. The report from ‘The Bell’ went even more specific stating the launch date to be 27th February.

 

Well, I am not very sure about the CES launch as it looks highly unlikely for Samsung to launch the Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus at the upcoming tech show. However, the South Korean giant might just spill some beans on the release date.
