All You Need To Know About The New Samsung S9
Last month, Samsung announced the unveiling of the new Samsung S9 and S9 Plus at the World Mobile Conference happening at the end of this month in Barcelona. Although there were little or no details about the phone revealed, details have been leaking on the internet for the past couple of weeks.
South Korea’s ETNews has released new information confirming most of these reports ranging from camera specs to internal circuit details.
First, up the rear-facing cameras – the single-sensor one on the S9 reportedly offers a variable f/1.5 to f/2.4 aperture, with the S9 Plus snapper keeping those same specs but offering two sensors in one camera. This confirms the rumours about the camera specs and should result in the best low-light performance ever.
The screen sizes are reportedly 5.77 inches and 6.22 inches for the S9 and S9 Plus respectively. Although these numbers haven’t been mentioned before, they may be the result of Samsung managing to make the bezels smaller than ever on the display fronts of these devices.
For the front-facing cameras, they’re reportedly pegged at 8MP, though the S9 version includes an iris scanner whereas the S9 Plus version has a separate module for eye scans – there’s no reason given yet, but it’s something to look out for when the official news arrives.
