There have been a lot of reports recently that Samsung might unveil the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ ahead of schedule. The new flagship handsets are also expected to be released earlier than expected. A new report from a reputable leakster suggests that Samsung is indeed going to show off the handsets earlier. The Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ are both expected to be revealed at the Consumer Electronics Show 2018 in January.
It’s unclear right now if Samsung is only going to share a teaser of its new devices at CES 2018 or if it’s going to give us all a good look at the device.
Samsung is believed to be holding an official launch event for the handset in March as it did earlier this year for the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+.
As a recent report suggested, both the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ are going to look nearly identical to their predecessors.
The handsets are said to feature 5.8 inch and 6.2 inch Infinity Displays. While the S8 and S8+ were nearly identical save for the display size, there will be more differences between the upcoming handsets.
The Galaxy S9+ is reportedly going to have 6GB of RAM and a dual camera system. Its smaller sibling will make do with 4GB of RAM and a single camera at the back. Both models are said to have 64GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot, and yes, even a 3.5mm headphone jack.
The camera on both variants is said to orient vertically on the back of the device with the fingerprint sensor placed on the bottom. If this is true, it will address one of the biggest pain points that customers have expressed on the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy Note 8.
