Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ to be showcased in January at CES 2018

If you just can't wait to see Samsung's upcoming Galaxy S9 smartphoneseries (which will succeed the well-received S8 family released in the firsthalf of this year), we have good news. According to Venture Beat, Samsung plansto showcase a Galaxy S9 and a Galaxy S9+ in less than two months from now. Moreexactly, it's said that the new phones should make their first publicappearance at CES 2018 (January 9 - 12) in Las Vegas - slightly earlier than previously expected


Interestingly, even if it's going to show off the Galaxy S9and S9+ in January, Samsung may still plan to hold an official launch event forthem only in late February, at MWC 2018 (February 26 - March 1). If that's thecase, it's likely that only a few details about the two handsets will be confirmedin January.  


Apparently codenamed Star 1 and Star 2, the Samsung GalaxyS9 (model number SM-G960) and Galaxy S9+ (model number SM-G965) should sport SuperAMOLED Infinity screens similar to those seen on the Galaxy S8 and S8+: 5.8 inches and6.2 inches, respectively. While the S8 and S8+ differ only when it comes tosize, the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ may also bring a few different features. Inparticular, the Galaxy S9+ could offer a dual rear camera and 6 GB of RAM,whereas the smaller S9 might come with a single rear camera and 4 GB of RAM.  


Both the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ should have redesignedrears, with the fingerprint sensor embedded below the main camera, not on its right(as is the case on the Galaxy S8, S8+, and Note 8). The two new Galaxy phonescould look like this. Other expected common features include 64 GB of storagespace, 3.5mm headset jacks, and AKG stereo speakers. Depending on market, theSamsung Galaxy S9 series should be powered by either Qualcomm's Snapdragon 845processor, or Samsung's own Exynos 9810.  

From what it's known thus far, do you think you'll like the Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+?

I'm allergic to Samsung software. If they would do clean roms I would of never stopped buying them because the hardware is great. Too many reports of slowing down S8's and S8+. I'll be very happy with my OP5T

IMO, it’s the android software in general more than it is Samsung because it forks in so many directions. It surely doesn’t help when you have Samsung roms on top of google roms on top of carrier bloatware.

Just throwing toxic buzzwords out there, hoping for something to stick? Maybe Google what forking an operating system means. Amazon does it, they're one of few.

Going through your comments on this thread alone, I can tell that you're just going with the flow and hating on Samsung's software based on old assumptions. Since the S7, Samsung has done massive job in improving their software with each iteration they released. My S8 Plus is still working as it did on day one, fast, stable, and smooth. And so far, I have seen nothing but compliments thrown at the Note 8's software. At the end of the day, every piece of gadget is prone to hiccups every now and then, and the OP isn't immune to this. And I'll gladly take a great hardware like the ones found on Samsung's, LG's, Apple's, etc flagships.., knowing that I'm not dealing with a shady Chinese company that was busted selling my private information.

Lol, you're almost as worse as an Apple fanboy who attacks every android device. If you haven't given it a try for yourself, I suggest you keep your mouth shut and stop relying on reports. And enjoy the privacy that you get with your phone xD

Or you’re just trying to save face after being roasted to a crisp after your horrible troll job about your iPhone X predictions.

And when the S9 gets released, you'll troll every S9 article hating on it and tell how the iPhone 11 and based on information you gathered from your fellow Apple insiders will crush it in comparison. This is your strategy to gain a bit of credibility after you lost all of what was left when the iPhone X was released.

Have you also noticed all of a sudden, his little buddy cnour also started appearing out of nowhere? When Bankz stopped showing up for a while, so did apple-rulez, HillaryClinton2020 and other troll accounts...

Bankz, I'll take your iPhone then. The hardware is great and Touchwizz is getting better but they're nowhere near where pure Android and iOS are. Samsung doesn't care much about user experience and force their imperfect software down the masses throats giving most iPhone users the impression that Android sucks. Thanks Sammy.

OLED has always been able to do that. I guess they've simply not done it because of the increased battery drain. Now that Razer has released one it's probably a bit more likely more will follow suit. With a smart use of adaptive sync I can definitely see it happening.

AKG stereo speakers. Good. I bet LG wont bring stereo speakers to G7.

If Samsung are releasing the S9 models early,then the Note 9 will also be brought out early so Samsung can put more pressure on Apple,Stereo speakers on the S9 models plus the headphone jack will definetly make the S9 models popular

Fyi it's not Samsung or Google's Roms causing the slowness or lag in the phones, it's honestly the carrier bloatware causing it. How I know this for a fact is I got a blk vzw s8+ n a orchid tmo s8+ it's slow as shhh mostly the vzw one over the tmo n an blue unlocked s8+ that I never experience any lag once so ever.

In 99 of 99 cases slowdowns are caused by Facebook's spyware. Uninstall and disable anything from them... All problems solved. \o/
