The Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ Features & Specifications Leaked!
As Samsung gears up to reveal the Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ at the 2018 Mobile World Congress in just a few days, we can already reveal to you the key features, pricesspecificationspictures and launch details of the two Samsung flagship smartphones! We hope this does not dampen DJ Koh’s presentation, but we just can’t wait!
Like the Samsung Galaxy S8there will be two sizes – the Galaxy S9 (SM-960) with a 5.8″ displayand the larger Galaxy S9+ (SM-965) with a 6.2″ display. The US and Chinese models will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC, while the rest of the world will receive the Samsung Exynos 9810 SoC instead.
New Variable Aperture Camera Updated!
Both models will feature a new, unique variable aperture camera. It was first used in the rare and expensive Samsung W2018 smartphone (available only in China). The camera has a mechanical aperture that lets you switch between an incredibly bright f/1.5 apertureand the f/2.4 aperture for a deeper depth of field.
Both smartphones will come with a new Super Slow-mo feature. It allows you to record slow-motion 1080p video at 960 fps / 4K video at 120 fps. However, this feature is apparently limited to models using the Samsung Exynos 9810 SoC.
Instead of using a point cloud facial recognition system like Apple Face IDand future honor smartphonesthe Samsung Galaxy S9 will feature IntelligentScan. It combines the existing facial recognition and iris scanning capabilities to improve accuracy and security, even in low light or super bright conditions.
The position of the fingerprint sensor was, finally, brought into central alignment. This makes it easier to use, especially in the Galaxy S9+ because the dual camera setup means the fingerprint sensor is positioned even lower.
The fingerprint sensor’s close proximity to the main camera though means you are still very likely to smudge the lens with your oily fingers.
Bixby & Earphone Port
Despite rumours that Samsung will be ditching the dedicated Bixby button and 3.5 mm earphone port, they will definitely be part of both devices.
Both devices will come with the same battery capacities of their predecessors – 3000 mAh for the Samsung Galaxy S9and 3,500 mAh for the larger Galaxy S9+.
However, they should have a longer battery life, thanks to their more efficient processors. They will also support the new 15 W fast wireless charging capability.
AKG-Tuned Stereo Speakers
The two new Samsung flagship smartphones will feature stereo speakers tuned by AKG.
