Samsung’s Galaxy S9 is on its way and the latest leak shows the phone up and running. The invite for the Samsung Unpacked event is minimal with a big “9” written on it, which is a clear hint on the expected smartphones. The phone will look similar to the existing Galaxy S8 line, but will include an upgraded camera system, people familiar with the matter said last month. Samsung previously had an exclusive on last year’s 835 processor, allowing it to get the new chip before rival phones.
After taking a break from revealing its smartphones at Mobile World Congress previous year Sammy will likely be returning to Barcelona, Spain to reveal its latest smartphone.
Samsung teases the camera in the Galaxy S9 in the announcement.
Rumour has it that Samsung has plans to release a limited edition Galaxy S9+ with 6GB RAM and massive 512GB storage in select markets.
Samsung will host the press conference at Mobile World Congress on February 26 and that’ when it is possible the S9 and S9 Plus to be announced and officially launched. Now a dummy unit of the Galaxy S9 has appeared on video. Samsung is known to make sensors with low apertures and it won’t be surprising if they fit an f/1.5 lens. It will also use rear dual-camera setup in the plus version and the non-plus version will have a single-sensor setup on the back.
With its MWC event, Samsung has resumed its older launch cycles for its flagship products.
More information has now been revealed about the Galaxy S9 camera, and ironically, it came from Samsung itself.
