Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ launch is just a week away, and the leaks so far have left very little to the imagination. The smartphones have already appeared in the form of renders, and their specifications have also been detailed in multiple leaks ahead of the official announcement. Now more details have emerged in the form of press renders revealing the complete specifications. Also Read - Samsung Galaxy A22 5G review: Looks fancy, runs fast but too pricey

The Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ will be the first smartphones to go on sale with Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset in the US, while other regions will get Samsung’s Exynos 9810 SoC. The smartphones will have same Infinity Display design like their predecessors, but the fingerprint sensor at the back has seemingly been moved below the camera module. The Galaxy S9 will feature single rear camera, while Galaxy S9+ will feature dual rear camera setup.

Samsung has been teasing major improvements to the camera setup with the launch of Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+. The new leak from Twitter user Roland Quandt further confirms that the cameras will support variable aperture that goes from f/1.5 to f/2.4, same as the one seen on W2018 flip phone introduced in China last year. The dual rear camera setup on the Galaxy S9+ will use the same 12-megapixel sensor with variable aperture like Galaxy S9 but also include an additional 12-megapixel sensor with f/2.4 that will act as telephoto lens like the Galaxy Note 8.

Quandt also reveals that Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ will feature same 5.8-inch and 6.2-inch Quad HD+ Super AMOLED displays with a resolution of 2960×1440 pixels like the Galaxy S8 duo. The Galaxy S9 will launch with 4GB RAM and 64GB storage, while Galaxy S9+ will offer 6GB RAM and 64GB storage. Both the phones are also retaining the 8-megapixel selfie camera seen on the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy Note 8 smartphones.

The smartphones recently started appearing in benchmark results as well and now a new listing on Geekbench shows the performance scores of Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ powered by Exynos 9810 chipset. The Galaxy S9 achieved a respectable score of 3,648 in single-core test, and 8,894 in multi-core test. The Galaxy S9+, however, beat that with a score of 3,773 in single-core test and 9,024 in multi-core test. It is easy to predict that Galaxy S9 duo will be the fastest smartphones in the Android domain when they go on sale next month.

In comparison, the Galaxy S8 scored 1,950 in single-core test and 6,400 in multi-core test, while Galaxy S8+ scored 2,159 in single-core test and 7,235 in multi-core test. The Exynos-powered variant might end up being faster than the Snapdragon 845 powered variant. The Galaxy S9+ benchmarked with Snapdragon 845 in December last year scored 2,422 in single-core test and 8,351 in multi-core test.

A Redditor recently posted that Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ are visually identical to Galaxy S8 duo and feature a 3D emoji feature that is different from Apple’s Animoji on the iPhone X. The Redditor and the new leak also confirm that Galaxy S9 series will support dual stereo speaker speaker with the top microphone also acting as a speaker and dedicated speaker at the bottom.

As revealed before, the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ will pack the same 3,000mAh and 3,500mAh battery also found on Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ duo last year. The smartphones will include latest gigabit modems, Bluetooth 5.0, support for 400GB SD card, USB Type-C port, wireless charging and IP68 water and dust resistance. The phones will also offer improved iris scanners along with face recognition feature.

The Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ will be officially announced at Galaxy Unpacked event in Barcelona on February 25. According to Evan Blass, the pre-orders will begin from March 1 and the smartphones are expected to ship from March 16. With reports of Apple cutting iPhone X production due to slower demand, Samsung might have a chance to capture some market share in the premium smartphone segment.
