Samsung Galaxy S9, Galaxy S9+ Will Have One Thing In Common With Galaxy S8 and S8+
Smartphone makers have prioritised to make their devices as thin as possible. When this happens, most of the times, battery capacities take a hit. While getting a day’s usage out of a smartphone has become the norm and most of the times, it is the mid-rangers that are launched with massive battery capacities that last for two or two-and-a-half days. However, the advent of fast charging technology has without a doubt, made life easier for people who have phones with smaller battery capacities.
The Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ are scheduled to be launched at MWC 2018 in late-February and feature fast charging technology. It was revealed that the two phones will not have an increased battery capacity in comparison to their predecessors and now, China’s 3C has detailed the fast charging support for the two flagship devices.
As predicted, it will be the same as on the current Galaxy S devices, this means up to 15W of power (9V @ 1.67A). The SM-G960x models are the Galaxy S9 and the SM-G965x is the Galaxy S9+. The “x” here represents the country, for example, 8 is Taiwan and 0 is China. This kind of 15W Adaptive Fast Charge has been present in Samsung flagship phones since the days of the Galaxy S6, so this doesn’t come as a surprise.
There have been plenty of leaks surrounding the Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ and as we move closer to the launch date, more details are getting unravelled. It is to be seen, at this rate, whether Samsung will have any surprise announcements to make when it takes to the stage to announce its new flagship smartphones. The company’s own official website recently leaked a few key camera features that might make their way into the new flagship devices.
A recently leaked image of the retail box of the Samsung Galaxy S9 revealed key features of the upcoming smartphone leaving very little to the consumer’s imagination. There have been plenty of renders and leaks that have also revealed the design of the two phones and now, it seems like there is very little we don’t know about the Galaxy S9 and S9+. With still over a month to go for the launch, this might change very soon, too.
