Samsung is now planning to show off the next Galaxy smartphone a bit early than expected with the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ scheduled to make their first public appearance at January’s Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. Apparently, Samsung is still holding an official launch event in March just like they did with S8.
Both the phones are nearly identical to their predecessors. Codenamed as the Star 1 and Star 2, and the model numbers being SM-G960 and SM-G965 ; the S9 amd S9+ will feature the same 8-inch and 6.2-inch curved-edge Super AMOLED “Infinity” displays, respectively, as their predecessors. The phones are likely to use a 10-nanometer fabricated processor, highly suggesting towards Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 and a similar Exynos model for some region.
Well we now know that screen sizes are identical but that’s the only thing which is similar. The S9+ will now have a 6GB RAM variant, amd even a second rear camera, just like the Note 8. Both have 64GB internal storage and will (fortunately) have the 3.5mm headphone jack.
Another interesting thing is that both phones now have their cameras in vertical configuration, just like the iPhone X, with the fingerprint scanner situated at the bottom, the most frequent complaint about the S8, S8+ and Note 8 finally being solved. Another change that’s sure to be well-received is the addition of AKG stereo speakers.
The next generation galaxy devices seem to solve the problems of their predecessors, but are those enough to keep up more aggressive phones coming in the future?
