The South Korean company, Samsung Electronics is expected to reveal its next top-end Galaxy models, the Galaxy S9 early next year with some new upgraded features. There were rumors that the company will unveil the sometime around Mobile World Congress (MWC) but it cleared up the rumors.
Samsung said that it is going to unveil new flagship smartphone Galaxy S9 at CES 2018 to compete with Apple’s iPhone X. The South Korean company also added that the new device will have the upgraded features over its predecessor Galaxy S8.
Galaxy S9 will have the same bezel-less Infinity OLED display like the current S8, however, the bezels will be slimmer than before. Samsung is still struggling with the in-display fingerprint reader so the new device will have the fingerprint sensor on the back.
Samsung will keep the difference between the Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus by sporting the dual camera exclusive to the larger S9 Plus and keeping only single camera lens on the back of the regular Galaxy S9. The Galaxy S9 would pack just 4GB RAM, while the S9 Plus would come with a bigger 6GB RAM.
A source familiar with the matter said, “It is highly unlikely for Galaxy S9 to have an in-display fingerprint scanner as the technical challenges are still left unaddressed.”
Qualcomm has officially revealed that both the Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus will be powered by the Snapdragon 845 SoC.
However, Samsung’s spokesperson declined to comment on the rumors, saying, “We do not provide any information related to the product not released.”
