Samsung Unleashing The Galaxy S9 In February

Share

Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus are rumoured for a long time now and recently the company did confirm February as the launch date for the device.

Samsung Experience is the new name for the company's earlier UI called TouchWiz and version 9.0 will eventually power the new Galaxy S9 expected to come out next year.

We reported that Samsung had their eyes set on a March release for their next phone in their Galaxy flagship series.

If this box is to be trusted, it shows that the Galaxy S9 will be more of an evolution than a revolution.

While there is no word on the processor of the Galaxy S9 yet, the box reveals that the smartphone will pack 4GB RAM and 64GB of storage as standard.

Still, there's every reason to be excited about the 5.8-inch (or 5.6) Galaxy S9 too, as its new "Super Speed" Dual Pixel 12MP OIS camera seemingly gets variable aperture as a key and unique selling point. Just as Apple is also preparing for foldable Smartphones, there is a possible scenario that Samsung Display is preparing to supply foldable panels to Apple for its next-generation iPhones. Well, as there are two apertures mentioned, it seems the camera will be able to switch between apertures depending on the lighting conditions, something similar to what we have seen on Samsung's W2018 flip-phone. Among other remaining features, the smartphone is also said to come with an IP68 rating for water and dust resistance, an Iris Scanner, and support for wireless charging. It also lists the handset with an 8 megapixel AF Selfie camera. What exactly "foldable" means in terms of functionality isn't clear, but smartphones with curved displays have been an obsession of Samsung's for the last five years.

More interesting, though, is the part about Galaxy S9+.
