Samsung Galaxy S9 – this is the latest news doing rounds across the web and tech world. Since the beginning, it was speculated that the launch of Samsung Galaxy S9 will happen in early 2018. Seems like the South Korean company is geared up to reveal its new flagships at the Mobile World Congress trade show in February 2018. The company has already sent out invites for this event where the unveiling will most certainly take place.
Based on the sources available, we can say that Samsung will raise the bar once again when it launches the much-awaited Samsung Galaxy S9. This handset will hopefully add a few more features that went missing in the previous models.
So what’s the Galaxy S9 is coming with? Let us find out.
According to the leaked images, this Samsung Galaxy smartphone will have an attractive design similar to the Galaxy S8. It is likely to get a 5.7-inch display screen, while the Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus may sport a 6.2-inch screen just like its predecessors. Besides, it will have an all-screen curved OLED display with a pixel resolution of 1440×2960 with 18:5:9 aspect ratio. Both the front and back panels are made of Gorilla Glass 5, while the aluminum frame on the sides will further enhance its appeal. Also, it might feature the always-on display as well as 3D touch for the home button. And unlike the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus models, the latest phone may have the fingerprint scanner placed beneath the dual camera set up.
Performance-wise, we can expect the Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus specs to be as powerful and efficient as the previous models. Under the hood, the S9 will mostly carry the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor, which is said to handle the Artificial Intelligence tasks effectively. If this happens to be true, the Samsung Galaxy S9 will be the first phone to get this chipset, which will ensure better image processing and great speed. It is said to run on the latest Android version, which is 8.0 Oreo when released. Meanwhile, the device will be offered with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. A microSD card might also be on the offer, which can be expected to support up to 256GB data.
Samsung Galaxy S9 specs will also include a 12MP primary camera that may have the f/1.5 aperture. This lens will mostly include other add-ons such as the dual pixel PDAF, optical image stabilization, LED flash, 1080p video shooting as well as auto HDR among others. This camera might use the Samsung Isocell image sensor, which will further help deliver high-clarity images in any light condition. Meanwhile, the front 8MP camera might give the same performance as the Samsung Galaxy S8’s shooter. On the other hand, its higher version may feature a dual camera just like the Apple iPhone X camera. Rumors also suggest that the Samsung Galaxy S9 will get the AKG stereo speakers as seen in the Galaxy Note 8. Moreover, these are likely to be positioned at the top and bottom of the device.
What’s also anticipated in the Samsung Galaxy S9 specs is the facial recognition, probably inspired by the Apple iPhone X’s Face ID feature. However, we have to note that the Samsung Galaxy S8 already has face scanning feature. So Samsung might come up with 3D depth sensors to make the feature secure enough for locking, unlocking the phone and make contactless payments by scanning the face of users.
As for the Samsung Galaxy S9 price in Dubai & UAE, nothing has been out yet. We can certainly expect the new smartphone to be a bit expensive than the previous ones considering the new additions to it. Some of the sources indicate that the Samsung Galaxy S9 Price in UAE may be around AED3215 or more.
Reports suggest that the Samsung Galaxy S9 release date in UAE is February 25. But even after its release, it might still take a few weeks of time for the handset to land in the stores.
So, these are the few details that we have gathered so far based on the rumors. However, the exact details of Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus release date, Samsung Galaxy S9 specs and Samsung Galaxy S9 price in UAE will be known only when these handsets come out in the market.
