Tomorrow at MWC 18, Samsung will officially announce the new Galaxy S9 series with the camera being the highlight. It will be a brand new camera (The Camera Reimagined). However, before that let’s increase our anticipation with some spoilers. Yesterday, Samsung Galaxy S9 + Box was leaked on the internet along with some technical specs of the flagship.
As you can see in the picture below, we have the Note 8 similar designed box. On the front, we have the S9+ logo colored bright blue. Furthermore, the variant storage and the name of the flagship is printed on the alternative ends.
Meanwhile, on the back of Samsung Galaxy S9 + Box, we have the specs sheet exposed. According to the box in the leaked picture, Samsung Galaxy S9 + will feature:
- 6.1-inch (154.2mm) Quad HD + Super AMOLED full-screen design
- 6.2-inch (158.0mm) full rectangular chassis
- Super Speed Dual Pixel 12 MP Rear Camera with OIS and F1.5 / F2.4 aperture.
- The camera supports super slow mode recording
- 8MP Front Camera
- Iris Scanner
- Stereo speaker tuned by AKG
- IP68 Water & Dust Resistant
- 64GB storage / 6GB RAM
- Wireless Charging
- Earphones tuned by AKG
Of course, Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 + will be the first smartphones to feature Snapdragon 845.
As far as the price is concerned, @Evleaks leaked that S9, S9 + European version pricing will be 841 euros (about 6600 yuan) and 997 euros (about 7800 yuan), respectively. Here’s an image comparison of Samsung Galaxy S9 / S9 + (leaked) and Samsung Galaxy S8 / S8 + :
The only thing which saddens us is that there will be no on-screen fingerprint reader in the leaked images. Moreover, the traditional horizontal camera and fingerprint layout have been shifted to vertically which looks a bit weird. But at least we can say goodbye to the accidental touching of the camera lens while using the fingerprint reader.
Let’s see if this leaked design and Samsung Galaxy S9 + Box gets real. We just have to wait until tomorrow!
