Recent reports, spotted on Weibo, all but confirm that the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ will ship with the same 5.77-inch and 6.22-inch displays. One major change though would be the presence of a dual-camera setup at the back, which would be similar to what is seen on the Samsung Galaxy Note 8. This would also result in the back panel undergoing quite a few design changes.
The Samsung Galaxy S8 was the first smartphone to launch with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset, and the Samsung Exynos 8895 SoC. The smartphones were slightly delayed due to the development of 10nm processors. However, the Galaxy S9-duo flagships, which are expected in the first month of 2018 has no such complaints as of now. In fact, the leaks have also suggested that the smartphone will hit the stores by February 2018.
The early launch of the Galaxy S9-duo might have something to do with the huge demand for the new Apple iPhone X. According to Phonearena, industry insiders say that the iPhone X can be the main reason for Samsung to launch the smartphones so early trying to take a dip in the sales of the iPhone X.
Another rumor vaguely hints that the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ won t come with in-display finger scanner technology, and we might have to wait till August 2018, when the feature could debut on the Galaxy Note 9.
In terms of specifications, the Galaxy S9 is further said to sport a pair of 16-megapixel rear cameras, and also dual 12-megapixel front cameras. The smartphones will come with either be IP65 or IP68 rating for water resistance. However, we suggest you take this information with a pinch of salt.
