Description

As the name implies, the Galaxy S9+ is expected to be a physically larger version of the Galaxy S9, packing a bigger screen and a bigger battery. Chances are the S9+ will be equipped with a camera very similar to the Note 8's, enabling 2X optical zoom and artistic background blur effects. Furthermore, Samsung is expected to use a next-generation system chip that is more powerful, yet more efficient than the one inside the Galaxy S8. On the outside, the Samsung Galaxy S9+ is likely to look very similar to the S8 Plus - made of metal and glass curving around the edges, with minimum bezels surrounding its Infinity display. We should see the Galaxy S9+ announced alongside the Galaxy S9 in 2018's first quarter.

    • IP certified:

      IP certified - The IP code indicates the degree of protection against dust and water. The first number represents dust protection, while the second represents water protection. In IP67, for example, 6 means a completely dust-tight device, while 7 means the device can stay immersed in up to 1 meter of water for up to 30 minutes. In IP68, a higher level of water protection is expected, but exact numbers aren't specified: both depth and continuance are specified by the manufacturer on per device basis.

  • Resolution:
    • 1440 x 2960 pixels
  • Pixel density:

    Pixel density - The pixel density of a display represents the number of pixels over an area of one inch. It’s measured in “pixels per inch”, or ppi. The higher the number, the more detailed and good-looking the display is.

    • 531 ppi
  • Technology:

    Technology - There are two main screen technologies currently used in phones and tablets: LCD and AMOLED. The former usually features a light source and liquid crystals, while the latter is based on organic light-emitting diodes. Newer LCD variations like IPS-LCD and Super-LCD allow for very accurate color reproduction and very wide viewing angles, where no significant image quality loss is observed. Current AMOLED screens differ in such a way that they can exhibit much more saturated colors (sometimes too much) and incredibly high contrast levels, which is due to black color being completely black in AMOLED displays.
