The Galaxy S9 is expected to be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor and fitted with a 5.8-inch QHD+ Super AMOLED display.
The Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ are all set to be launched by the company on February 25, at its exclusive event ‘Samsung Galaxy Unpacked 2018’, ahead of the Mobile World Congress (MWC) event, to be held in Barcelona next month. Before this the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge series were launched at MWC and the Galaxy S8 series was launched in New York in March 2017. The Galaxy S9 and S9+ are expected to be similar to the S8 series, apart from some changes in the camera and performance.
Rumors are floating around of significantly upgraded cameras in the upcoming phones. The models might have Samsung’s Tetracell technology, which enhances low light images. The Galaxy S9+ is expected to sport a dual lens while S9 might just have a single lens at the back of the phone.
Reports also suggest that S9 will come with the “Super Speed” camera technology in its dual pixel 12MP rear camera sensor. Along with that, a “Super Slow-Mo” mode and Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) might be included.
The Galaxy S9+ is expected to offer a 512 GB storage option, but for limited markets only. It will usually have a 6GB RAM with 128GB extendable storage option. The Galaxy S9 might come with a 4GB RAM with 64GB extendable storage.
The glass and metal design is unlikely to be changed in the new smartphones. The battery specifications might also be the same, although the S9 and S9+ could come with 15W fast charging capability.
A new technology called ISOCELL sensor has recently been published on the company’s website, which includes a new three-stack fast readout camera sensor with abilities to record 1080p videos at 480 frames per second. This technology might be included in S9 and S9+.
