Samsung Galaxy S9 retail box leaks, specifications revealed

Samsung to unveil Galaxy S9 at MWC, not CES

Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ Oreo update receiving final touches ahead of official rollout

Samsung may ditch the headphone jack with both the Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus.

Earlier this week at CES 2018, Samsung's president of mobile business, DJ Koh, confirmed that the company will launch the Galaxy S9 next month at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. From what one of the exhibitors stated (who was present in the private viewing at the CES 2018 event), Samsung's foldable phone sports a 7.3-inch foldable OLED screen.

The image, which has surfaced on Reddit, details various key specifications of the Galaxy S9.

Other specs and features that were nearly certain anyway include an iris scanner, 4GB RAM, 64GB of storage, IP68 water and dust resistance and wireless charging support. And of course it is IP68 water and dust resistant, so no change there.

The January 2018 Nintendo Direct Mini Highlights
Nintendo is trying to bring more attention on titles released on previous systems that didn't receive enough play in the past. It was leaked in the hours and days before the Direct, but the original Dark Souls is coming to the Switch indeed.

According to the leak, the Galaxy S9 will come with a single camera sensor on the rear. If anything, we expect to see the stable release hitting those devices taking part in the beta program first before spreading love to non-beta users. 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. AKG-tuned Stereo Speakers and headphones are also mentioned, as well as wireless charging support (no mention of it being super fast as rumoured though), an iris scanner, and 64GB of onboard storage with 4GB of RAM.

Koh's recent statements seem to corroborate an earlier leak that showed that the Galaxy S9 and S9+ would likely be powered by the latest Snapdragon 845 platform from Qualcomm and that the devices would be announced in February.

What are you expecting from Galaxy S9?

The Galaxy S9 is expected to be almost identical to its predecessor, with the rear fingerprint sensor moved to below the camera, rather than its current, position of off to one side. The box will also include earphones tuned by AKG.
