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
Stereo speaker tuned by AKG
IP68 Water & Dust Resistant
64GB storage / 6GB RAM
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.
