Samsung Galaxy S9 to run for a day and a half on a single charge, will sport front stereo speakers?
A Reddit user, who claimed to have had hands-on time with a  pre-production version of the Samsung Galaxy S9, posted an AMA (Ask Me Anything) thread on the social forum site the other day. He fielded questions related to the unit he played around with, noting that the model was "very close to production." And while it might not mean anything, the fact that the thread was deleted could indicate that his story is legitimate and hit too close to home.

According to the lucky gentleman who allegedly was given 20 minutes to play around with the phone, the design looks very similar to last year's Samsung Galaxy S8 with the thin bezels, 18.5:9 aspect ratio and Super AMOLED display. The fingerprint scanner on back has been placed under the camera instead of right next to it; this makes it less likely that users will smudge the camera lens with their finger while blindly feeling for the biometric reader.

He adds that the battery life on the unit will allow users to run the phone for a day and a half on a single charge. The phone will sport a 3000mAh battery, while the larger Galaxy S9+ will be equipped with a 3500mAh cell.

The AMA says that the Galaxy S9/S9+ will have stereo speakers with one placed in the earpiece, and one on bottom. Sound is said to be vastly improved compared to the Galaxy S8/S8+. The camera also is an improvement with 4K video available at higher frame rates. And he says that while Samsung's 3D Emoji is not as polished as Apple's Animoji, it is better than Apple's offering in some ways. Lastly, the Reddit poster said that the new Galaxy S9 has a better grip than last year's flagship model. A better grip could mean fewer drops, which could lower the odds of the phone dropping onto the asphalt, shattering the screen.


The Samsung Galaxy S9 and Samsung Galaxy S9+ will be unveiled this coming Sunday, February 25th, in Barcelona.
