With the announcement just around the corner on February 26th, the world is preparing for the next Samsung Galaxy phone to be unveiled, the S9 and S9+.
Aesthetically, it looks remarkably similar to the S8 and S8+. The LCD is rumoured to be 5.8 inches on the S9, and 6.2 inches on the S9+. It will still include the now famous ‘Infinity Display’, which still does look remarkable. The bezels will have also been slightly reduced, lending to more viable screen space. Also, the S8’s controversial fingerprint scanner location seems like it will be moved to beneath the camera, as seen on LG & Huawei phones (among others) meaning less stretching to unlock your phone.

The main upgrades seem to be with the S9’s hardware. It’s expected to feature the Octa-Core Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chip, one of the fastest processors currently on the market. It is rumoured that Samsung will have a more powerful version of the S9+, with the 128GB version featuring improvements such as increased RAM and a Dual Camera (as seen on the Note 8), which is a bit out of the ordinary for Samsung.
With the rumours flying thick and fast, do you think Samsung will have any surprises to pull out of the bag with the announcement? Or will it just be more of the same, with slight improvements?
