The new smartphone from Samsung is already being glimpsed in numerous leaks and it seems that it will be a portent in performance with a design similar to Galaxy S8 and S8 +. Undoubtedly Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 + will be the new flagship of the company and will also improve the features of the Note 8.
Filtered images thanks to a manufacturer of covers for mobile phones reveals much of the design of the Galaxy S9 and S9 +.
As you can see we are facing two large terminals that follow the design line Infinity Display 18.5: 9 open on Samsung by its predecessors, the Galaxy S8 range. In addition to this, the screen will be curved, that is, it will have curved sides in the purest Edge style of the South Korean company.
As for hardware, the popular Geekbench benchmark has hinted at how Samsung’s next smartphone will perform and also sheds some light on its specifications. We are talking about a Snapdragon 845 processor in the tests although the company will surely continue with the duality of Exynos and Snapdragon processors according to regions that we have already seen in the last generations of smartphones.
As for the Exynos processor, Samsung has prepared its new Exynos 9810 to be officially announced at CES 2018. It will be the first Samsung SoC to include a Cat 18 LTE modem with 6CA support, capable of providing download rates of 1.2 Gbps. This brings with it nothing less than an increase in maximum bandwidth of 20% compared to the values offered by the current Samsung Exynos 8995, the processor of the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy Note 8.
The performance of the Snapdragon 845 for each processor core in Geekbench 4 manages to reach more than 2,400 points, the highest seen to date. The most interesting comes in the multi-core performance, using the 8 cores passes the 8.350 points. To compare, the Note 8 yields 1,986 / 6,728 points in GeekBench 4. In other words, the Galaxy S9 get an improvement in gross power of 20% in single-core mode and 24% in multi-core mode compared to the previous generation.
In GeekBench we can read almost 5 GB of RAM and is more than likely to mount a 6 GB of RAM, ie Snapdragon 845 surely block that RAM as memory for the Adreno GPU that integrates, a high amount, but it is also the resolution and that implies textures and objects of great resolution that end up weighing more than in terminals with screens of more modest resolution.
Galaxy S9 – back with blue cover (filtration)
One of the interesting details of this filtration is that the date shown by Samsung smartphones is February 28, in full MWC that could indicate date of launch or sale of the same.
Another of the highlights is the difference in section camera between the S9 and Galaxy S9 +. The larger model seems to show a double chamber system in vertical configuration. The fingerprint reader, this year, will be in the back under the cameras in both models. Interesting movement seen the commotion and controversy that brought the situation of the reader in the Galaxy S8.
According to latest information, Samsung has confirmed that the new Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 + will see the light in Barcelona during the MWC 2018. The president of the mobile business DJ Koh of Samsung has confirmed that information during the CES 2018 fair.
If last year the Galaxy S8 range was announced in March and was put on sale in April, attending the new timing, we could be before the release of the S9 during the month of March 2018.
