A popular leakster has posted an image of the retail box of the Samsung Galaxy S9 which reveals key features of the camera on the Galaxy S9. According to the specifications listed on the box, the Samsung Galaxy S9 will have a 5.8-inch sAMOLED display with a 2960 x 1440 px resolution. Similar to its predecessor, the smartphone will have a single 12MP SuperSpeed Dual Pixel camera. This time around, however, the camera will have an f/1.5 aperture and record super slow motion videos, probably at 960fps.
Other features include an IP68 rating for water and dust resistance, an 8MP front-facing camera and stereo speakers tuned by AKG. Last year’s Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ also retailed with AKG earphones and this year, it is expected the same from the upcoming Galaxy S9 and S9+ as well. The Samsung Galaxy S9 will have 4GB of RAM and 64GB of onboard storage.
While the US and the South Korean variant of the smartphones will be powered by the Snapdragon 845 chipset, the global variants are expected to have the Exynos 9810 chipset under the hood. Recently, the company talked up about its new chipset’s AI capabilities, hence, it will be interesting to see how the non-Exynos 9810 variants will cope up with that.
The Samsung Galaxy S9+ is expected to have a 6.2-inch display with the same resolution and aspect ratio. Under the hood, the Galaxy S9+ might have 6GB of RAM and more storage variants unlike the single variant of the Galaxy S9. The Samsung Galaxy S9+ is also expected to have a dual-camera setup at the back which might be similar to the one found on the Samsung Galaxy Note8.
The smartphones will be unveiled at MWC as confirmed by Samsung Mobile president, DJ Koh. More details and pricing will also be announced at the launch event.
