Samsung Galaxy S9 Will Sport Front Facing Speakers and Battery Lasts More Than a Day

And we're expecting the Galaxy S9 Plus to be yet another success story. And prior to the launch event, a massive leak reveals nearly everything about the devices.

Extras: IP68 certification, iris scanner, facial recognition. The Galaxy S9+ was shown only in Coral Blue and Lilac Purple color options. As the company will reveal Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus at MWC 2018, Galaxy Tab S4 will unveil most probably at the same time. They certainly have an all-around modern design, though their Super AMOLED screens (both with 1080 x 2220 pixels) are not curved.

In terms of design, both the phones would look nearly identical to their predecessors, though there will be a few minor changes. The Plus variant will have an secondary 12MP sensor at the back with f/2.4 aperture.

The flagship is also tipped to sport stereo speakers, which will be located at the top and the bottom of the phone. The service of this social network also seems to have functions to send and receive messages similar to those of the aforementioned WhatsApp or Facebook Messenger, nowadays with Telegram the most used chat apps on mobile phones.

Samsung is targeting $10 billion worth of sales in India over the course of this year, The Economic Times reported Monday, citing an unnamed company official. Up front, both models are expected to feature an 8-megapixel selfie camera.

Rear camera: 12 MP rear camera with OIS and variable aperture (f/1.5-f/2.4) (S9) / Dual-12 MP rear camera with OIS and variable aperture (f/1.5-f/2.4+f/2.4) (S9 Plus). However, there is no word about the optical image stabilisation plus laser and dual-pixel autofocus feature in the upcoming smartphones. The Snapdragon 845-powered Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus will be available in the USA, for example, while the Exynos 9810-powered Galaxy S9 handsets will be at your disposal in Europe. The US and China will likely get the Snapdragon version, which includes four 2.6GHz cores and four 1.7GHz cores.
