At CES 2018, Samsung Mobile’s CEO confirmed that the Galaxy S9 will be announced in February. No dates were mentioned, but it’s safe to say that it could occur close to MWC 2018 which is towards the end of February. Of course details weren’t shared, but he probably didn’t have to thanks to a recently leaked photo.

In a post on Reddit, a photo was shared in which it is allegedly the retail box for the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S9. Note that this is only for the S9 and not the S9+, but we expect that save for display size, both phones should be more or less identical. According to the box, the Galaxy S9 will feature dual pixel 12MP OIS cameras, an 8MP front-facing camera, 4GB of RAM with 64GB of storage, stereo speakers tuned by AKG, and an IP68 certification which means it is both water and dust resistant.

The box also claims that the phone will feature a 5.6-inch display with a QHD+ resolution. The handset will feature wireless charging, with the charging pad sold separately. However it seems that the Galaxy S9 will be bundled with earphones tuned by AKG, so that’s something to look forward to.

It also looks like the iris scanner is one of the phone’s features, but interestingly enough there is no mention of the rear-facing fingerprint scanner. Could Samsung be doing what Apple did and ditch the fingerprint completely? Unfortunately the packaging does not mention anything about the version of Android it is running on so it’s anyone’s guess, but Android 8.0 Oreo would be a safe bet.
