Samsung Galaxy S9: all new features to expect


Where there is smoke there is fire, and the fact that nuggets of info about upcoming Galaxy S9 are already trickling out may come as support for the rumor that Samsung may pull its release forward in order to combat the wider market availability of the iPhone X, whose production is expected to ramp up sufficiently no sooner than next quarter. 

While a grandiose change in looks is not expected, given that Samsung just blasted off with the Infinity Display design this year, there will be grand changes under the hood, if the rumor mill and history are to be believed. 

So, without further ado, we are corralling all the credible rumors about upcoming new features of the Galaxy S9 that make sense, and have a chance to land in the device. Check them out in the slideshow above, and tell us if these make you wait on the S9 with bated breath.

What we really need is a 4k 144hz screen. Or at least a current res 144hz screen...

And what's wrong with the 8? Its perfect. The annual release schedule is only 1 quarter away. Christmas is literally roughly 60 days from now. Phones don't stop coming. The 8 is already here, so its obvious its time for the next model. I won't be interested in the S9. I didn't even want the S8. But had to take it due to the Note 7.

If they did like an underscreen fingerprint sensor, it would knock the shoes off of all the competitors. But that's still a little too futuristic for right now

Samsung always the innovator. Maybe in a few years apple will catch up.

It seems awesome but sadly i won't even consider it because phone comfort is important to me and the s9 will come with the really tall and thing screen which is very uncomfortable
