Samsung’s most anticipated smartphones, the Galaxy S9 and the Galaxy S9+ are due for their official unveiling in the next one week. The leaks of these handsets have been happening from the past few months, but now, we have more accurate details and renders of the phones, leaving nothing for imagination before the launch event. Thanks to the folks at WinFuture.de as well as legendary leakster @evleaks, official press render images of the Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ have been leaked along with the hardware and software specifications of the phones.
Going by the renders of the Galaxy S9 and S9+, the phones will be launched in four colour variants: Coral Blue, Lilac Purple, Midnight Black, and Titanium Gray. The Titanium Gray variant could be launched in a few markets, and it is being reported that it will have limited availability. The Galaxy S9 and S9+ will have designs that are very similar to their predecessors. This means that they will have glass-and-metal sandwich designs with curved sides. The Galaxy S9 will feature a 5.8-inch Infinity Display with QHD+ resolution (2960×1440 pixels), whereas the Galaxy S9+ will sport a 6.2-inch Infinity Display with QHD+ resolution. The phones will run Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box with Samsung Experience 9.0 (or higher) UI.
The phones will have 12-megapixel rear-facing cameras with dual-aperture feature, which will choose between ƒ/2.4 in good lighting conditions and ƒ/1.5 in low-light conditions. The Galaxy S9+ will also feature a secondary 12MP camera sensor with ƒ/2.4 aperture at its rear for a dual-camera setup. The phones are also said to be capable of recording slow-motion videos at a whopping 960fps going by the latest teaser published by the Korean smartphone brand a few days ago. This slow-motion video recording feature is present on a few Sony Xperia smartphones, but it hasn’t been implemented very well. Both the Galaxy smartphones will come with the same 8-megapixel front-facing camera with ƒ/1.7 aperture that has been used in the Galaxy S8 and S8+.
For the US and Chinese market, Samsung will continue its tradition of using Qualcomm’s Snapdragon chipsets in its high-end phones phones, which means that the phone will use the Snapdragon 845 chipset in the Galaxy S9 and S9+. In the rest of the markets, the phones will use the Exynos 9810 SoC, which was announced recently. Both phones will have AKG-tuned stereo speakers, Bluetooth 5.0, NFC, and IP68 certification for dust and water resistance. The Galaxy S9 will come packed with a 3000mAh battery, while the Galaxy S9+ will have a 3500mAh battery, both with support for Adaptive Fast Charge.
With the upcoming Galaxy S9 and S9+ launch event on Sunday, we will get to know a lot more about the phones along with their availability and pricing. The company could launch a new Gear VR virtual reality headset and a bunch of official accessories along with the phones. Stay tuned with us to learn more about the upcoming devices.
