Galaxy S9 Reveal Reportedly Scheduled For CES 2018

That would be a departure from previous Galaxy phone launches, as Samsung didn't reveal any Galaxy S8 details until late March this year. Whether you went small or + version, you got the same experience, outside of the difference in display and battery sizes.

Samsung may be planning to show off its upcoming Galaxy S9 flagship smartphones at CES 2018, according to a new report, though the extent of the unveiling is anyone's guess.

This mainly means the same 5.8-inch and 6.2-inch curved-edge Super AMOLED "Infinity" displays, but Samsung has also taken the opportunity to correct the main issue with the S8 range- the back-mounted fingerprint reader.


But there will be differences outside of size.

The Galaxy S8+ did feature a larger battery than the S8, but for the S9, the rumours suggest that only the Galaxy S9+ will feature dual cameras, similar to the existing Galaxy Note 8. Well, no. But it's a sh*tty move on their part if it happens.

While the S8/S8+ were identical in terms of RAM, the S9/S9+ will depart from this, with the S9+ being launched with 6GB of RAM, while the S9 will remain at 4GB, as well as coming with a dual-camera setup. Venturebeat reports that the Galaxy S9 line will feature AKG stereo speakers (!), a centered rear-fingerprint sensor (!) situated under a vertically aligned camera and flash, and a new DeX dock that allows the phone to lay flat and act as a touchpad or virtual keyboard when in use. Now this deal from Carphone Warehouse sees it down to just £29 per month with 500MB of data from iD Mobile.
