Spring is only around the corner which means the unraveling of Samsung’s Galaxy S9 and their larger companion the Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus.
With over 20 million Galaxy S8’s shipped worldwide in 2017, Samsung will be looking to break all records in 2018 and put their brand name in the Android consumers conversations.
We look at what the rumour mill over the internet have brought to light.
New Camera features – Samsung has shared some details on its fast-capture camera sensor, including 480 frames per second slo-mo video recording ability, advanced Phase Detecting Auto Focus with dual pixel and a super PD sensor (Dual for S9 plus, single for S9). This all supports the capability of producing greater picture quality when the camera needs to focus on the distance of fast-moving objects even in low light for faster and more accurate auto focusing.
3D emoji characters – Emoji characters that respond to facial expressions have been discussed lately. Android users have been teased for the lack of quality and quantity available compared to their foes at Apple. Will this be the solution to overtake?
Stereo Speakers – Can Samsung be the first mobile phone company to release actual built in stereo speakers into the devices? With Spotify, Deezer and other competitor apps so widely available and used worldwide, been able to play your music with great clarity from your mobile device will be a big statement from Samsung.
Design- The back of the devices finger printer scanner looks to have moved to below the camera lens in the centre of the device to make it more accessible for the user.
Display – With Apple’s release of the iPhone X with Samsung’s OLED tweaked display, landing high regards of the best display around currently, Samsung will be definitely be looking at taking the top spot away from Apple and there has already been images of the official box stating “a 5.8-inch QHD+ Super AMOLED screen.” This takes the display to 568 ppi pixel density compared to Apple same sized display currently producing 458 ppi pixel density. The Plus version with a 6.2 inch display also unleashes an impressive 531 ppi pixel density.
Now you know the rumours, this is where you can bag a good buck for your old device.
