Samsung Galaxy S9: Everything you need to know about the 2018 Android flagship
As per the information gathered so far, the upcoming Galaxy S9 (5.8-inch) and S9+ (6.2-inch) will have the same design language, but differ in one aspect.
The generic Galaxy S9 will have just one primary shooter on the back, whereas it's bigger sibling S9+ is expected to house a dual-camera sensor on lines of the Galaxy Note8.
Inside, due to differences in screen size, the Galaxy S9 and the S9+ will have 3,000mAh and 3,500mAh battery, respectively.
As far as improvement over the predecessor, Samsung has made changes in the fingerprint sensor placements in the upcoming Galaxy S9. The predecessor Galaxy S8 series had the fingerprint sensor aligned horizontally beside the camera module, which led to users accidentally touching the snapper and leaving smudges the lens cover.
Now, as you can see the leaked Galaxy S9 series image, it is translocated below the camera, almost in the centre of the back panel, so that users will be able to reach the biometric sensor easily and less chance of touching the camera lens.
The Galaxy S9 series will also boast IP68 water-and-dust resistant certification, meaning the device can survive up to 5 feet (1.5 meters) underwater for close to 30 minutes.
Like previous years, the 2018-series Samsung Galaxy S9 (S9+) series, depending on the region of sale, is expected to come with two variants, one a 10nm class Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 (in the US, China, and select countries) or Samsung's 10nm Exynos 9810 series (in India, Europe, and others).
As for the memory configuration, the standard Galaxy S9 will be offered in two options 4GB RAM+64GB storage and 4GB RAM and 128GB storage, whereas the bigger screen version Galaxy S9+ will be available in 6GB RAM+64GB storage, 6GB RAM+128GB storage and 6GB RAM+256GB models in major markets across the world.
The word on the street is that Samsung has plans to release a limited edition Galaxy S9+ with 6GB RAM and massive 512GB storage in select markets.
Rumour has it that the Galaxy S8 successor will have variable aperture setting options, which allows users switch between f/1.5 and f/2.4 apertures depending on the lighting environment. The former will allow the camera to absorb more light during indoor or dark conditions, while the latter can be used during bright sunny conditions.
The standard Galaxy S9 is expected to boast 12MP primary camera on the back and 8MP front-facing camera. However, the S9 Plus is said to house dual-camera, but there is no information on MP count. It will come with the same 8MP sensor on the front, as seen in the generic model.
Both the S9 and S9+ will come with HD 460 fps (frames per second) slow-motion video capability and Optical Image Stabilization (OIS).
