South Korean manufacturer Samsung is one of the biggest leading names in the Smartphone industry with their diverse range of smartphones from entry-level category to big budget flagship premium devices. Among them, the Galaxy S-series have managed to get prominence in the premium category with its technologically advanced features.

As the successor to the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+, launched last year, the electronics giant is working on their forthcoming flagship to amuse the market. A bunch of leaked information is being speculated around the web, ahead of the official release. Some of the latest rumours point out that the Samsung Galaxy S9 will be one of the most powerful smartphones launching in 2018, and so far it seems so.

Expected specifications

We are not quite sure about the things that the South Korean giant has gotten under their sleeves. The smartphone seems to resemble the late-Galaxy S8 lineups, at least in case of appearance. The main highlight of the Samsung Galaxy S9 would be the curved edge display, which the company has followed since 2015 in their flagship smartphones.

The smartphone is to feature 5.8-inch or 5.9-inch super AMOLED display, with curved edges, namely "Infinity DIsplay." As usual, Samsung is more likely trending towards releasing the smartphones with two processor variants; one with Qualcomm's Snapdragon 845 Chipset and the other, of course, Samsung's own Exynos 9810 chipset. Both the chipsets are apparently manufactured using ARM Cortex cores packed, but differ in the manufacturing process.

Qualcomm make use of their own semi-custom Kryo 385 Cores with the 10nm FinFET process, whereas the Samsung has their own second generation 10 nanometer FinFET technology. However, the Exynos-powered Galaxy smartphones are more likely to outperform the Snapdragon variants these days.

While purchasing an expensive smartphone, people do mostly care about the camera performance. The Samsung Galaxy S9 is expected to boast a set of pleasing camera sensors, and the latter, Galaxy S9+ with a dual-camera setup on the rear. As per rumoured information, Galaxy S9 units will sport a 12MP camera with a lager sensor, having an aperture width of f/1.5. In case you are unaware, lower the aperture, faster the shutter speed becomes. Samsung has already confirmed to introduce a 4K super slow-motion video shooting feature and a quick shutter rate in order to get clearer images of fast-moving objects. Just like last year, the selfie snapper will carry only an 8MP sensor with f/1.6 aperture.

Even though the smartphone market is falling on 6GB RAM trends, the Samsung seems just interested in implementing a 4GB of RAM on their flagship smartphones, stating "It is enough." It is already clearer that the tech company is focusing on speeding up the system, instead of adding more primary memory space for unwanted multitasking.

On the board, the Samsung Galaxy S9 will run Android 8.0 Oreo with TouchWiz UI on the very top layer. The connectivity side of the smartphone includes a USB 3.1 Type-C, 3.5mm headphone jack, NFC, Bluetooth 5.0, Wi-Fi and 4G LTE having up to 1.2Gbps transfer rate.

A lot more to expect

Samsung Galaxy S9 gives us hope to expect a bunch of groundbreaking tech stuff out of the box. Those who have been using the Galaxy S8, S8+ or Note 8 will really get interested in the Bixby. Samsung's only Artifical Intelligence powered Personal assistant is great at controlling the entire smartphone with some commands, even better than Apple's Siri on iPhones.

Samsung's DeX will too be available with the Galaxy S9 & S9+, which expands the smartphone into a PC. The Wireless Charger will be manufactured by Qi Wireless. Samsung is planning to launch a smart facial recognition system, along with the existing Iris scanner and fingerprint scanner, to improve the security features.

At the MWC 2018, to be held in next month, Samsung is expected to relaunch the Samsung Pay Wireless payment system with more International Cards support and more security. As per the information confirmed by the Samsung itself, the Unpacked event, where the Samsung Galaxy S9 is getting unveiled, is set for February 25, the day before MWC 2018 begins.
