If we done it by a holiday deteriorate though shopping a new smartphone (or removing one as a gift) we might be prickly for an upgrade. And if you’re an Apple fan, go crazy—we substantially won’t see a new iPhone until late-2018 anyway—but if you’re an Android user we should wait, during slightest until a Galaxy S9 arrives subsequent month.

Samsung reliable this week that a subsequent flagship phone will be denounced in February. We didn’t get an accurate date, though a association customarily times a proclamation to coincide with Mobile World Congress, an annual expo set for Feb 26-March 1. So we can design a Galaxy S9 to entrance around then.

In a meantime, we already know a decent volume about Samsung’s subsequent phone interjection to a brew of central announcements and earnest leaks. Here’s a discerning outline of what to design from a Galaxy S9 to assistance we confirm either it’s value watchful for.

Familiar Hardware


An purported sell box for a Galaxy S9 leaked this week on Reddit, divulgence a prolonged list of hardware enclosed in a new phone. If a trickle is to be believed (and it does demeanour flattering official), a S9 won’t be a outrageous ascent when it comes to specs. Expect a same high-resolution 5.8-inch display, a same inner storage options (64GB), a same memory (4GB of RAM), a same special earbuds, and a same water-resistant build.


The Galaxy S9 also supports wireless charging, though that’s been a standby Samsung underline for years. Overall, it might not sound like most of an upgrade, though Samsung could still warn us in on pivotal area: a camera.

New Cameras

The Galaxy S9 could supplement a few new photography facilities that make it a inestimable upgrade. The Reddit trickle mentions “super slow-mo” video, and rumors has it a phone will be means to constraint video during 1,000 frames per second. That’s a good step adult from a Galaxy S8, that maxed out during 240fps.


Another renouned gossip is that a Galaxy S9 could offer something called “dual aperture.” (Aperture refers to a stretch of a opening that light passes through.) Offering dual opposite apertures during f/1.5 and f/2.4 (as listed on a leaked box) would make it probable to take in additional light in darker settings. In improved lighting, a second orifice would offer a improved abyss of field, creation it probable to keep some-more objects a wider operation of stretch in concentration during a same time.

Samsung’s Answer to Apple’s Face ID?

Finally, it looks like Samsung could come adult with a response to Apple’s face-scanning technology. Earlier this month, a association suggested a latest processor chip, a Exynos 9810, that offers face showing and will expected energy during slightest some versions of a Galaxy S9. The Exynos 9810 could potentially compare Face ID. It could also assistance Samsung duplicate Apple’s renouned Animoji feature.


The usually obstacle is that a chip substantially won’t be used in U.S. versions of a Galaxy S9—Samsung typically opts for a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor here instead. It’s misleading if a association can come adult with a solution, or either it will be forced to embankment a underline entirely. That might explain because it’s not listed on a leaked box, though “iris scanner” is.

In a meantime, we’ll only have to wait to find out.
