How far will go the launch, we can’t comment but for sure, it gonna be very interesting to know more about S9.

Samsung intends to reclaim its market share by launching the S9 along the same timeline as the much anticipated Apple iPhone 8 launch in September 2017.

Samsung Galaxy S8, the beautiful beast:

Galaxy S9 Specs & Features:

Samsung has proved his best whenever it comes to Galaxy S phones. But now, Samsung will play very safe considering the case of Note 7. We can expect a removable battery in S9 finally, which will not only make it reliable but also safe, additionally, we won’t have to compromise with the thickness thanks to the designers.

Per the speculations and available hardware, considering 2018 we will get 6GB RAM, True Octa-Core processor clocked at 2.5 GHz higher frequency and 1.5 GHz low frequency. Samsung engineers are also testing fast charge 4.0 plus with their phones, so we can expect similar technology in next-generation Samsung Galaxy S9 smartphone.

Below we’ve mentioned more of Galaxy S9 features, and the highlighted are the supercapacitor battery and all edges display with bezel-less form.

Below is the list of all possible Samsung Galaxy S9 Specs:

Processor 7nm Manufactured True Band Octa-Core Processor, Snapdragon 845 / 9XX, Exynos 9810
Memory 6GB-8GB RAM, 256 onboard Storage memory
Display 4K Super AMOLED 3-edge display
Battery SuperCapacitor Battery with Ultra Fast Charge
Card Slots Smart Card Slots supporting dual-SIM & Single-SIM-microSD Modes

No doubt, in the last 5 years smartphone in the market become smarter, but after releasing Galaxy S9 flagship, Samsung can be the iPhone Killer. Who knows, at the time of launch of S9 will iPhone 7S be able to take the competition or not. But, we the fans are going to enjoy the war of Samsung vs. Apple as it will bring and force both to bring their best.

Given the fact that Samsung officials have been rather tight-lipped regarding any technical scoops on its new baby Samsung Galaxy S-9, it is rather difficult to speculate what the future may hold. But for now, let’s go ahead with what we have in hand.

The new Samsung Galaxy S9 specs are expected to come in screen sizes of 5.8 inches with one of its kind Corning Gorilla Glass 5 covering, a stronger gripped blended metallic body with blended screen and super 5.8-inches Full 4K display, Resolution of 4096*2160 pixel, 2.5 GHz Octa-Core processor, chipped in Snapdragon 845 processor from Qualcomm which not only boosts the performance of the phone but also mitigates power consumption.

Now that’s a double whammy. For the selfie addict, Samsung Galaxy S9 may have a primary camera of a 31MP and secondary camera of 12MP. So that’s all we have for now. Keep watching this space for more scoops. Since the launch of Galaxy S8, we are under the impression that Samsung is doing continuous tries to make its smartphones out stand in the market.

And, yes they do out stand, however, to overcome other brands Samsung should bring not only something interesting but also the very innovative. And, S9 Galaxy can be one of that kind. You won’t be wrong if you are counting Galaxy S8 to be the best of Samsung till date.

Samsung recently has hinted that in the next Galaxy there might not be the old TouchWiz. Well, Samsung was using this software shell since the launch of first Galaxy S smartphone and opting out for something new in the next Samsung S9, it is clear that Samsung just wants to walk on the path of fans.

Of course, with S8 the Samsung will overcome the brand loss of Galaxy Note 7. And, who knows if Samsung actually launches the Galaxy Note 8 this year, but per the rumors launch of Note 8 is clearly doubtful. However, let’s wait there might be other interesting things that can revolve around by Samsung.

Samsung Galaxy S9 camera sensor – The front will capture more 3D

Rumors linked to Samsung’s forthcoming flagship smartphone — Galaxy S9 have already begun coming in. In accordance with the most recent rumor, the Galaxy S9 may comprise a 3D detector outfitted front-facing camera. With the accession of this new 3D detector, the South Korean giant is planning to enhance facial recognition performance. Aside from the truth, also expect enhanced safety features and much better rate.

Notably, Samsung was supplying facial recognition attribute because it established Galaxy Note 7. With the debut of Apple’s Face ID — launched with iPhone X, the struggle for improved recognition and security has moved a step ahead.

It feels like Samsung has become led towards Apple’s Face ID path. The business is focusing on its own 3D image mapping detectors. The camera requires a 3D scan of user’s head from all angles and then it’s securely stored in the smartphone. The technology will probably be like the TrueDepth system which Apple uses. Whether this rumor turns out to be authentic, then the future of this iris and fingerprint detector appears to be in peril.

Additional rumors associated with the Galaxy S9 implies that the phone could include a rear-mounted dual camera system using its 3-layer image detector. Samsung’s recent patent filing suggests there is a risk that the approaching flagship smartphone in the firm might include an environmental sensor which measures the quality of atmosphere by discovering a variety of particles in the atmosphere.

Past reports have shown that the Galaxy S9, carrying out a version variety of SM-G960, will likely be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 chipset together with 6GB of RAM. It’s expected to incorporate an Infinity screen that we watched the Galaxy S8, using QHD+ resolution.

A recent report indicates that Samsung could only get the first bath of Snapdragon 845 chip for the Galaxy S9. It’d worked out a similar agreement with Qualcomm for its first batch of Snapdragon 835.

Why will Samsung S9 Plus go 7nm?

If Samsung goes at 7nm scale for manufacturing the chipset of S9, then it would be a revolution. At the moment other manufacturers including Samsung (with S8) has brought devices based on 10nm scale processor, which is undoubtedly a great innovation itself, and it results in better performance keeping the efficiency of power consumption. So, if Samsung goes at 7nm, then expect 9th Generation Galaxy S smartphone to be more powerful and will run for more time with its battery.

Imagine Samsung Galaxy S9 with SuperCapacitor battery

Engineers and technology innovator are continuously working to bring the present impossible thing to alive. Yes, recently in the news it has been leaked that Scientist is able to develop the supercapacitor batteries for the gadgets. Samsung is running to get this proprietary technology for their smartphones. And, if it is true then Samsung Galaxy S9 can be the first phone to have it.

What is Super Capacitor battery, in terms of dimensions it will be just like a small paper piece of plastic and semiconductors? And, it will be able to charge in seconds. Imagine, your smartphone Samsung Galaxy S9 working for a whole 24×7. Wouldn’t be very interesting? Well, it won’t only change the future of smartphones, but also the era of computers.

The supercapacitor is a not the newest thing, but in a smartphone, this is a really big deal. If Samsung manages to get it into the next S device, then I bet the whole world will run to get this smartphone. Who won’t love a smartphone that charges for a week in just a few seconds?

In the market, there exists a few xl smartphone that carries bigger battery capacities but that can survive till max 2 days. However, every smartphone manufacturer aims to provide more efficient solutions that can increase the battery capacities.

More power will consume more battery, performance is directly proportional to the battery usage, more resources will consume more energy, however, this relation of performance and battery usage can be overcome by the optimisation and the hardware design. And, Samsung’s chipset manufactured at 7 nm are already leaked.

And, guess what Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus might be the first to have such. And, this new chipset innovation will not only make SIX performance better but also will consume lesser amount of battery.

Clearly, Samsung aims for the best that they can bring to the market keeping the user safety. When user safety will be remembered then Galaxy Note 7 will always come to the thoughts, but Galaxy S series is ready to define the brand legacy, Galaxy S8 is already a must-have smartphone. The best thing that can Samsung bring to the 9th Galaxy smartphone is the supercapacitor battery.

Samsung Galaxy S9 display – 3 edges better than Galaxy S8’s display

Samsung has surprised the world with the newest designed smartphone, yes we’re talking about the Samsung Galaxy S8. The most attractive are the display out of all. Now, if Samsung wants to keep the impression for the next year, we are expecting more than Galaxy S8 has done, so Samsung Galaxy 9 display have to be very special.

In past two years, we’ve seen manufacturers had done serious work on bezel-less designs, Samsung and Xiaomi are most successful of all with their respective beasts – Samsung Galaxy S8 and Xiaomi Mi Mix.

Maybe the next innovation from Samsung will bring the next generation display and it may be the four-edge display configuration to be part of Samsung Galaxy S9.

The release date of Samsung Galaxy S9 is affected by Galaxy S8 launch:

In the complete history of Samsung S series, for the very first time, Samsung delayed the launch of its device. Here, by the device, we are referring to Samsung Galaxy S8 launch. Yes, last year Feb we welcomed the Galaxy S8, however, in 2017, Samsung launched S8 in the month of April, however, in the month of May it hit the shelves.

And, the question continues, when Samsun S9 will be released? The answer is not very confirmed. Speculations and possibilities suggest till the end of 2017, however, now coin is turning, we may not even see S9 Samsung in the month of Feb 2018. The wait might be more. 🙁

Will Samsung go, the iPhone 7 way?

The Samsung Galaxy S9 Edge rumors suggest that we may welcome our Samsung 9th Galaxy phone without a headphone jack as happened in case of iPhone 7? Yes, you read it right. The Galaxy S9 edge features may include a special charging jack supporting a headphone accessory. But being a Korean’s giant the Samsung fan, I wouldn’t like to welcome such Galaxy 9 Edge specs.

Galaxy S9 price won’t be affected by a small change with the headphone jack, but imagining our beast Samsung S9 edge phone without a jack isn’t easy and acceptable. Well, we should wait another month and look for the Galaxy S8 release date, as it will bring the clarity for S9 launch, and we would also be able to compute the biggest war between the smartphones i.e. Galaxy S8 vs Galaxy S9, and Galaxy S8 vs iPhone 7.

The list of wars will be very interesting but out of all, Galaxy S8 vs iPhone 7S is going to be killer for 2017. With launch of Galaxy S8, Samsung has cleared that the probability of going iPhone way for the Galaxy Samsung S9 is minimal. We really appreciate that how Samsung has crafted the new Galaxy beautifully and interesting.

For a second, consider if Samsung doesn’t change the design for S9 (keep the similar S8 design), then also it will be impressive, however, the new is expected from the new things. So definitely there will be tweaks, Galaxy S9 will be better than S8, and Galaxy S9+ will be better than Galaxy S8+ in their own way.

Additionally, the war of iPhone vs. Galaxy S phone never end, and this year the war will be interesting. Apple has recently placed an order to Samsung to manufacturer the display for iPhone. Two brands are working together to bring the best technology no doubts, but on the market shelves, this war will continue. And with S8 the chances of more favors are towards Galaxy instead of iPhone, what do you think?

  1. I have noticed that Galaxy S8 is a Good phone, but it’s bigger for my small hands. I want Samsung to release next Galaxy in a smaller size because I don’t want 5.5 inches device.

  2. I wish Samsung had made a 5.2″ model that fits in your pocket and smaller hands easier. My phone S5 is big enough for me.

  3. “New processor chips that will make next year’s flagship S9 the fastest ever”

    When has next year’s chip slower than its predecessors from the previous years?

  4. I am not sure that it’s release date be next January. Samsung will delay, so I’m buying S8. And next year can think of getting S9 as it is far. Also, the information mentioned above is based on rumours. Once Samsung will come up in the picture then can only be believed.

  5. Do you just want to say that new Galaxy will get the new processor not the old processor as used in the S8. This is really shocking. So, what else?

  6. I bought Galaxy S8 and it is an amazing phone. And as per the concept images of S9, 3-edges display may not be true. S8 is perfect. After using it for a week I can recommend it to other people. Every friend who sees my phone. loved it. Additionally it works really smooth. It is best of Samsung so far. I had Note 7 to be honest. While travelling there were issues as you know it was not allowed on flights. Honestly note 7 also worked perfectly but S8 is a whole new level to design. Apple fans I feel sorry for you because Apple will not launch something similar lol.
