One of many leaks ahead of the handset’s official debut.
With Samsung’s flagship Galaxy S9 slated to be unveiled at Mobile World Congress next month, a myriad of leaks have been surfacing with the latest being a look at the upcoming S9 and S9+. VentureBeat has released these images, and claim the S9 will look nearly identical to its predecessor in design, down to its lack of bezels and Bixby voice command button.
The site also states it will have a 5.8-inch display and a Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 processor chip in the US with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage, lining up with previous spec leaks. The S9+ is reported to have a 6.2-inch display and 6GB of RAM with 128GB of storage. Samsung has confirmed that the camera will see an update from the S8, but according to VentureBeat, the improvements will include a variable aperture on the 12-megapixel back camera that switches between f/2.4 and f/1.5.
Previous rumors also state the camera will feature ISOCELL image sensor in a three-stack design to export data from the image assembly at a higher rate, which also allows super-slow-motion HD images at 480 frames. It’s also mentioned that the fingerprint sensor will be vertically aligned with the back camera as opposed to the S8’s previous placement beside the lens.
