By Team Good Life, 18 Dec 2017


The buzz around Samsung Galaxy S9 series has been heating up for quite some time. The first flush of leaks and hints suggested that Samsung was all poised to unveil their new flagship models at CES in January next year. However, a new report from Bloomberg states that the new Galaxy range will be launched at Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona in February, 2018.

The Bloomberg reports claims that Samsung is expected to unveil two variations of the Galaxy S9 – a regular Galaxy S9 handset and a larger S9+. This is in keeping with the trend the Korean giant has been following for its last two Galaxy iterations, the Galaxy S7 and S8.

According to various rumors and leaks, the Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+, both will have identical aesthetics as their predecessors. The handsets will sport a Super AMOLED infinity display panel with the sizes being 5.8 inches for Galaxy S9 and 6.2 inches for the Galaxy S9+. Leaked renders of the device images show a rear-facing fingerprint scanner located below a single primary camera sensor. This design is consistent with that of the Galaxy S8.

The US versions of the phones are expected to be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor, while the global versions will have Exynos 9810 SoC. There has also been a lot of speculation that Samsung has significantly improved their iris scanners for more efficient usage.

Reports claiming that Samsung Galaxy components including the printed circuit broad (PCB) will start mass-production by the end of December are also floating around. Though Samsung has not confirmed any details regarding the devices, that has not stopped fans from getting hyped up about what could be the first flagship launch of 2018.
