Samsung Galaxy S9 And Galaxy S9+ Could Debut At CES 2018
If you like tech and follow the news consistently, you must have a read a few Galaxy S9 leaks here and there. Most of them point towards a CES launch for the Galaxy S9 and its bigger sibling. A new report has also claimed that the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ will be unveiled during CES in February 2018 which will be held in Barcelona, Spain.
It further claims that even though the two flagship phones will make their debut at CES, 2018, there will be a launch event in March where the two phones will be officially launched and all the details of the two phones will be made official. Big tech companies like Samsung, LG and more, use CES to showcase its new products and innovative technologies that companies are currently working on, however, the marquee showcases are usually of the next big flagship phone of the year since CES is held fairly early on in the year.
The Galaxy S9 series will be nearly identical to their predecessors and will only include some hardware upgrades. The Galaxy S9 is reportedly codenamed Star 1 and will bear the model number SM-G960, while the Galaxy S9+ will be codenamed Star 2 and will have the model number SM-G965.
The display size of both the phones will be identical to their 2017 counterparts with the Galaxy S9 sporting a 5.8-inch Super AMOLED display while the Galaxy S9+ will have a 6.2-inch display. The bezels will be thinner than the previous generation devices with the infamous curved edges and “Infinity Display.”
Under the hood, both the devices are expected to have the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset for the US variant and Exynos 9810 for the rest of countries. While the Galaxy S9 will have 4GB of RAM, the bigger variant will have 6GB of RAM. The 2018 flagship phones will also have AKG stereo speakers and will come bundled with AKG earphones as well, similar to the Galaxy S8/S8+.

Unlike 2017, where there were barely any differentiating factors between the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+, Samsung is planning something different for 2018. It appears that the Galaxy S9 will have a single camera at the back while the Galaxy S9+ will have a dual camera setup at the back. This will give consumers extra incentive to spend more money on the Galaxy S9+.
In terms of pricing, it won’t be a surprise if the Galaxy S9+ surpasses the Galaxy Note8 price and touch the thousand dollar mark, similar to the iPhone X.
