It is finally the time when we have started to come across substantial Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ rumors. This latest speculation talks about both renders and specifications of the next Samsung flagship which has previously been rumored to get official in January 2018. The leak has been reported by TechDroider along with renders from Twitter user JPZamoraS.
To start off, Samsung is said to continue with the same bezel-less display approach and design language which we have seen with Galaxy S8, Galaxy S8+, and the latest Galaxy Note 8. The only major difference in the design is that the Galaxy S9 and S9+ render show it with even slimmer bottom bezel than existing flagships. As for the display, it is reported to be 5.8-inch and 6.2-inch respectively.
The remaining specifications are said to be same for both upcoming flagships. Samsung is said to offer dual 12-megapixel rear cameras and dual 16-megapixel front cameras on Galaxy S9 series. But the most interesting changes are expected to happen in the biometric security features department.
The report suggests that Samsung is actually testing both under the display fingerprint scanner and rear-mounted fingerprint scanner prototypes. If the company is able to come up with a reliable solution for the former technology in time, it will go with it otherwise, we will get to see a physical fingerprint scanner on the back. This is something which has also been mentioned by SamMobile in its own report.
Additionally, Samsung is said to be working on 3D mapping powered facial recognition technology. It is said to be similar to what Apple’s Face ID available on the iPhone X but this is something we suggest you should not get yourself too excited about yet.
Lastly, the report claims that Samsung might follow the trend of ditching 3.5mm headphone jack with the Galaxy S9. While there are solutions to this problem like using Bluetooth headphones or using the adapter, it is something which will surely disappoint a good number of Samsung fans if it comes true.
