Samsung is one of the biggest smartphone manufacturers in the world. Depsite the company’s dominance, the company often finds ways on how to improve their future devices. With the Samsung Galaxy S8 being well-received by the tech community and casual user in general, the company is preparing the successor that would take the S8’s place, most probably called the S9.
A number of leaks and renders have been making their way onto the internet suggesting quite a number of overall changes in the Samsung Galaxy S9. Benjamin Geskin, a leaker who has been well-known for his leaks, has recently released a render of what he alleges is what the S9 may look like from the front and back. Based on what Benjamin has released of the S9, there’s nothing new that we could pick out that’s different from the leaks of other leakers.
Based on the render above by Benjamin, his render also suggests that Samsung would be moving the fingerprint sensor to the center rear of the device alongside a dual camera setup on its rear.
Based on what we’ve learnt from previous leaks and renders from the past few months regarding the Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus, the Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus would come with a larger screen-to-body ratio, most probably hitting the 90% barrier pushing its infinity display even further. On top of that, these slight, yet minimal improvements throughout the S9 and S9 Plus should yield a better user experience based on what Samsung has been criticized for with the Samsung Galaxy S8.
Regarding internals, now that Qualcomm has announced their latest and greatest Snapdragon 845, we could be assured that the Samsung Galaxy S9 would pack Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 along with a possibility for Samsung to upgrade the RAM on the S9 to 6GB. The Samsung Galaxy S9 would pack a single camera on its rear, while the S9 Plus would be treated by a secondary camera as well on its rear.
Rumors suggest that Samsung could be unveiling the Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus as early as January 2018 instead of their traditional April reveal. If this is true, we’re not far off from having our first glimpse of the Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus.
