At CES 2018, Samsung's Mobile Communications Business President DJ Koh announced that the 2018-flagship, the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus will be launched at the Mobile World Congress 2018. It will still shoot dual-pixel 12-megapixel photos - assisted by OIS - only this time round it would apparently be faster - Samsung is using the term Super Speed dual-pixel - and offer a variable aperture.
The hands-on pic also largely corroborates the most credible gossip out there, including the presence of only 4GB RAM and a single rear-facing camera. This camera sounds eerily similar to the one on the W2018 flip phone, which switches to the f/2.4 aperture when lighting is ideal, possibly adding increased sharpness and contrast. Then, we have "Super Slow-mo", which reaffirms rumors that Samsung might be answering Sony's own 960 FPS slow-motion mode. Those who got the second phase and first phase in other countries will also receive the next version soon.
If true, it appears the S9 will feature a 5.8-inch Quad HD+ Super AMOLED display which will keep Samsung's trademark curved design. However, today, an alleged retail box of the Samsung Galaxy S9 has surfaced online which does reveal some interesting information about its specifications. Which means, ideally both of them should come with Samsung's hallmark bezel-less Infinity display and an unusual aspect ratio of 18:9. We were already expecting the S9 to retain the same screen as the Galaxy S8, so this is no surprise. These speakers will be tuned by AKG like the bundled earphones.
