Samsung plans to show its new Galaxy S smartphones a little earlier than usual, as revealed by the well-known source of leaks Evan Blass.
The new Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 + will make their first public appearance in January 2018 as part of the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas. Although Samsung will hold an official launch event in March, as it did last year with the Galaxy S8 and S8 +. What is not clear is how much information about the devices will show at CES.
The Samsung Galaxy S9 + will not have the same specifications as the Galaxy S9: These will be the differences
The two phones will be almost identical in appearance to their predecessors. Under the code name of Star 1 and Star 2, the new Galaxy S9 and S9 + will have the same 5.8 “and 6.2” Super AMOLED screens. That comes with a curved edge than this year’s models.
Although there is no specific processor, we suggest that it will implement a 10-nanometer manufacturing technique, indicating Qualcomm’s upcoming Snapdragon 845 (and probably a similar model of Exynos for some regions).
That is where things get a little more interesting: apart from their screen sizes, the Galaxy S8 and S8 + models were almost identical in every way. It will not be like that this time.
In addition to a larger screen, the Galaxy S9 + will offer more RAM than the Galaxy S9 (6GB versus 4GB) and a second rear camera similar to the Note8. Both models will have 64 GB of internal storage, plus a slot for microSD. And both leave the 3.5 mm headphone jack intact.
Regardless of the configuration of the rear camera, both phones will orient the elements on the back of the device vertically. Also, it comes with the fingerprint sensor on the bottom, following the complaints of the users. Another change that will be well received is the incorporation of AKG stereo speakers.
Finally, Samsung plans to introduce a new DeX docking station in which the phones are placed horizontally and allow the use of screens as a touchpad or virtual keyboard.
