Samsung Galaxy S9 & S9+ details and possible renders start to appear

Samsung Galaxy S9 & S9+ details and possible renders start to appear

Can't wait for the Galaxy S8? The Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ will still have the 5.8- and 6.2-inch displays, respectively, and they'll each offer an Infinity Display with minimal bezel. It's likely the phones will use the Snapdragon 845 and the equivalent 10nm Exynos version in selected markets. Some of us like smaller phones and we also might want the extra boost in RAM and flexibility of a secondary camera.

The area that will house the rear camera on the S9 (and dual cameras on the S9+) and the fingerprint sensor will be arranged vertically this time around, with the scanner on the bottom, so it definitely looks like Samsung's been listening to user feedback regarding the odd placement of the biometric sensor in this year's models.

If the images are correct, the Galaxy S9 will be the first S series phone to feature a dual lens camera, with a vertical set up to match that found on Apple's iPhone X.

Both models will have 64GB of internal storage, microSD slots for additional storage and - believe it or not - 3.5mm headphone jacks. They will also feature AKG tuned stereo speakers. If this is true, it will address one of the biggest pain points that customers have expressed on the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy Note 8.

Samsung may be planning to show off its upcoming Galaxy S9 flagship smartphones at CES 2018, according to a new report, though the extent of the unveiling is anyone's guess.

You can read The Telegraph's review of the Samsung Galaxy S8 here, which describes it as "almost inarguably the best-looking phone ever made" and "a brilliantly-designed phone that sets a new standard for what phones should look like in 2017". It's early days, but the leaks will begin flowing freely soon enough. Blass assures us that the Galaxy S9 is definitely a "tock".
