Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ will include a front facing 3D sensor according to one of the renowned tipster @UniverseIce which means Samsung is also gonna introduce the face detection unlocking mechanism as well, second to Iphone X. Are we looking at a new Era? Lets wait and See!
One of the most heard complaints of Samsung Galaxy S8 and Note 8 are its poor placement of Fingerprint reader in the back. If Samsung is gonna introduce this Display embedded Fingerprint readerthats gonna clear that problem and will spark a new trend in the smartphone market. Chances of getting this feature in S9 are most likely because we can see a 3D homescreen button in Note 8 which is limited in its functions and looks but dynamically changes over time. Who knows if Samsung can convert it into a fingerprint reader!
Samsung S9 series will have 2 variants – one with the Qualcomm Snapdragon processor and One with the Samsung made Exynos Processor. A device named as G960 recently showed up in benchmark review claiming over 2600 benchmark score with 4GB RAM. Samsung will definitely increase the RAM size to 6GB and if it has 6GB RAM then the benchmark score will definitely go over the roof. Samsung Galaxy S9 will be using Snapdragon 845 processor which is yet to be announced and the other variant will use Exynos 9810. According to Samsung the Exynos 9810 uses the most powerful CPU architecture ever.
Introduction of Google Pixel 2 did raise an imminent threat to both Samsung and Iphone as they are using two primary cameras for perfect portrait photos whereas Google combined it into a single camera and also Google Pixel 2 comes with OIS and EIS inbuilt along with Google Assistant which has way more IQ. To regain the market value Samsung must introduce something new and from the background talks and rumors they will definitely bring us something near heart. S9 will have an additional sensor for shooting Super Slo-Mo videos at 1000fps. There’s no news so far regarding the conversion of two cameras into single one as Google did. There will be two cameras with 12MP each. One with f/1.7 aperture and other with f/2.4 aperture.
Samsung will be announcing the device by February or March 2018 when analyzing their previous patterns. Price of the Samsung Galaxy S9 (G960) will be around $850 and for Samsung Galaxy S9+ (G965) will be $950 bordering with the price of Iphone X. The lower price of Samsung S8 and Note 8 series did help the tech giant acquire a major market share during this period. lets hope Samsung will repeat that method in case of S9 series too.
The new processor, camera and display embedded fingerprint reader are the most expected features in S9. Lets all wait and see what comes in with the announcement.
