Just a few days are now left for probably the most awaited smartphone launch of the Mobile World Congress, the Samsung Galaxy S9, and S9+. There have been a ton of leaks, rumors and other stuff related to both the phones but till now; everything seemed doubtful. Now, we have got the official press renders of the phones along with the full spec sheet, thanks to Roland Quandt and Evan Blass that have shared all these details on Twitter.
Evan has constantly been revealing more and more details about both phones from the past month, and now we have got almost every detail about the phones. In this article, let’s talk about the Samsung Galaxy S9 Specifications and the design. We will be talking about Galaxy S9+ in the next one.
SAMSUNG GALAXY S9 – DESIGN AND SPECIFICATIONS
Starting off with the design of the phone, you can check out the whole gallery of the official press renders of the phone above. Just click on any image, and it will open with the full size. As you can see above, the Galaxy S9 retains a lot of the design of its predecessor, i.e., the Galaxy S8. There is almost no difference at all from the front but looks like the bottom bezel of the S9 is a little thinner compared to the S8. On the rear, things change a little bit with the fingerprint scanner now placed below the camera lens, a much better location than last year. The design is typical Samsung design with glass and metal build, curved display, and minimal bezels all around (as Samsung likes to call it Infinity Display!) There are all the ports that you would like to see on a 2018’s flagship, with 3.5mm headphone jack still in place along with the USB Type-C.
This time, Samsung is adding stereo speakers that are tuned by AKG. Sweet?
Now let’s talk about the Samsung Galaxy S9 Specifications. You were waiting for these, right? Here they are –
- 5.8-inch Quad-HD+ Super AMOLED Infinity Display
- Snapdragon 845 / Exynos 9810 Processor underneath
- 4GB RAM along with 64GB ROM (No 6GB RAM for S9!)
- 3,000mAh battery paired with Wireless charging and Fast Charging
- 12MP rear camera with an impressive variable aperture – f/1.5 and f/2.4
- 8MP front camera with large f/1.7 aperture
- USB Type-C Port, 3.5mm headphone jack, Stereo Speakers, Bixby Button
- Android Oreo with Samsung Experience 9.0
- IP68 Rating
- Glass and Metal build
Well, looking at the track record of Samsung’s pricing, it won’t be surprising to see the phone being priced way more than last year. Nevertheless, the specs are impressive, and the Exynos 9810 chipset is pretty powerful, more than the Snapdragon 845 (as per recent benchmark scores!). What are your views?
