At the beginning of August, the new Samsung Galaxy S9 concept has been seen online and drew a lot of attention. The smartphone will be smaller but more powerful than the Galaxy Note 8 which will be announced this month.
Samsung Galaxy S9 was displayed in a video and had its features shown, along with a gallery which presented its specs. The smartphone will have a 5.7 inch Super AMOLED display at a resolution of 2,160 x 3,840 pixels with a fingerprint scanner inserted in the screen. The design is meant to promote a bezel-less display which wraps around the edges of the case. The display holds an iris scanner and front dual cameras which have two imaging sensors of 8 megapixels each.
The size of the Samsung Galaxy S9 will be 148.9×68.1×8 mm, with its photography setup embedded into the back of the device, featuring no camera bump. The two rear cameras are 16 megapixels each and feature two LED flash units which come in two tones.
Samsung Galaxy S9 Has a Similar Design to the Galaxy Note 8
If we take a look at the whole design, Samsung Galaxy S9 has a similar look to the Galaxy Note 8. Nonetheless Samsung may change this device in time, and until it will be launched, we hope that it will have many of the features announced. Eliminating bezels and having 4 cameras which are neatly snuggled into the case, with both an iris and a fingerprint scanner housed into the display will make it a great and revolutionary smartphone.
We will refrain from this nice dream though, as Samsung’s OEM – the equipment manufacturer – will surely be unable to make it all happen so soon, taking into consideration that the Samsung Galaxy S9 will be introduced next spring.
There have been rumors from the beginning of this summer that Samsung Galaxy S9 will have a new SoC (system-on-chip), named Exynos 9810 which is built on 8nm process node, while US will have a version of SoC featured by Qualcomm on a 7nm silicon piece.
Release Dates for Samsung Devices Might Change in 2018
Usually, Samsung announces their Galaxy S series at a Mobile World Congress at the end of February, but this year the company unveiled their devices one month later, so there’s no telling whether they will stick to the old or the new schedule next year.
