Samsung is all set to launch its latest flagship devices, the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ smartphones at the Galaxy Unpacked event just ahead of Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2018. Now, just before the official launch, full specifications of the Galaxy S9 duo along with new press renders have emerged online.
According to a report by WinFuture, the Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ will feature almost a similar design language as we have seen in the Galaxy S8 series. However, the major changes come with the placement of the fingerprint sensor, which is now just below camera module and the dual-camera setup in the Galaxy S9+. The report mentions that the smartphones will be available in Midnight Black, Lilac Purple, Coral Blue and Titanium Gray colour options.
The major changes in the Galaxy S9 duo come in the camera department. The report reveals that the Galaxy S9 will feature a 12-megapixel sensor with the variable aperture so that users will be able to switch between f/1.5 and f/2.4. The Galaxy S9+ will feature a dual-camera setup at the rear with a combination of two 12-megapixel sensors with one of them featuring variable aperture as mentioned above along with a secondary sensor with f/2.4 aperture. Both the sensors present in Galaxy S9+ and single rear camera in Galaxy S9 will feature optical image stabilization (OIS) and both of them will come loaded with laser and Dual Pixel autofocus. For the front, there will be an 8-megapixel camera with f/1.7 aperture and it will also feature autofocus feature.
Another highlight of the Galaxy S9 series are the speakers. The devices will come with stereo speakers which are tuned by AKG. The phones will also come bundled with AKG-tuned earphones. Coming to the sheer specifications, the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ will feature a 5.8-inch and 6.2-inch QHD+ Super AMOLED Infinity Display with an aspect ratio of 18:5:9.
The report suggests that the smartphones will be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor in the US and China, while the Samsung Exynos 9810 SoC will be available in other regions. The company’s in-house processor is based on 10nm process and features four cores clocked at 1.9GHz, while four high-performance cores are clocked at 2.9GHz. The European variant of the phones will come with 64GB of storage option, which can be expanded up to 400GB via micro SD card slot.
