The Samsung S9 and S9+ are supposed to be revealed at the Mobile World Congress this coming February 26 to March 1, 2018 at Barcelona, Spain. But since many people are excited to see the new features that these new smartphones has to offer, famous “leaker” Roland Quandt has gave us some hint of what to expect from the Samsung S9 and S9+.
Both the Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ will have a variable aperture on the camera, so that the user can switch between an aperture of each F / 1.5 and F / 2.4.
The Galaxy S9+ comes in dual camera setup, which combines two 12-megapixel sensors. One of them uses the mentioned combination of two aperture settings, while the second sensor offers a F/2.4 aperture. Both sensors feature an optical image stabilizer and each use a combination of laser and dual-pixel autofocus to focus as quickly as possible. On the front each sits an 8-megapixel camera with F/1.7 aperture and comes with its own autofocus.
This teaser also shows that the new Samsung S9/S9+ can do slowmotion upto 960 frames per second in a 1080p resolution.
Another feature of the Galaxy S9 and S9 + are the speakers. Based on the leaked images, we can see that the S9/S9+ might have a two speakers (one on the bottom and one on the top) and should work as a stereo speaker to provide a surround sound.
The Galaxy S9 has a 5.8-inch SuperAMOLED panel on board, which works with 2960 x 1440 pixels and thus offers a QHD + resolution. The aspect ratio stays at 18.5: 9. The same goes for the Galaxy S9 +, which features a 6.2-inch screen with 2960 x 1440 pixels and diamond pixel matrix. Although their screen sizes are similar to the Samsung S8 and S8+, you can notice that the bezel on the bottom are slightly smaller.
