This is what the Galaxy S9 might look like

If you just can't wait to see Samsung's upcoming Galaxy S9 smartphone series (which will succeed the well-received S8 family released in the first half of this year), we have good news. According to Venture Beat, Samsung plans to showcase a Galaxy S9 and a Galaxy S9+ in less than two months from now. More exactly, it's said that the new phones should make their first public appearance 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 S9 and S9+ in January, Samsung may still plan to hold an official launch event for them only in late February, at MWC 2018 (February 26 - March 1). If that's the case, it's likely that only a few details about the two handsets will be confirmed in January.  


Apparently codenamed Star 1 and Star 2, the Samsung Galaxy S9 (model number SM-G960) and Galaxy S9+ (model number SM-G965) should sport Super AMOLED Infinity screens similar to those seen on the Galaxy S8 and S8+: 5.8 inches and 6.2 inches, respectively. While the S8 and S8+ differ only when it comes to size, the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ may also bring a few different features. In particular, 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 redesigned rears, 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 phones could look like this. Other expected common features include 64 GB of storage space, 3.5mm headset jacks, and AKG stereo speakers. Depending on market, the Samsung Galaxy S9 series should be powered by either Qualcomm's Snapdragon 845 processor, 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+?
