Galaxy S9 launch may be most massive yet

This week we’re having a peek at a series of released teasers for the Samsung Galaxy S9. These teasers show a little bit about what the Samsung Galaxy S9 will be, and how it’ll stand out from the rest of the pack. The Galaxy S9 will look a whole lot like the Galaxy S8 to the common user – but once the user gets inside the phone, things get wild. Or so Samsung is appearing to suggest in these teasers, these teasers which seem to suggest that the Galaxy S9’s launch will be their biggest yet.

The Samsung Galaxy S9 was teased today in four videos. These four videos were collected from various ends of the internet and combined into a single piece of media for your simple perusal this afternoon. Have a peek at the video below, and stick around for a few leaked specs. This device will be a bit of a surprise when it’s revealed – but only a tiny bit.

Samsung suggested this week that “We will learn to imagine everything from the beginning” with this Galaxy S9. That of course means relatively little, and may in fact mean absolutely nothing in practice. Samsung will indeed reveal a smartphone on February 25th, but it won’t likely make you question your whole life and start back from square zero. And if it does – that’s super! Let’s get something like that going for everyone!

The Samsung Galaxy S9 was leaked numerous times over the past several months, and today we’ve got a list. This list shows the specifications for the Galaxy S9 as well as we’ve been able to construct from completely non-official sources. These specs are not official, and have not come from Samsung in any way, shape, or form – they’re only very educated guesses at this point.

SAMSUNG GALAXY S9:
• Display (S9): 5.8-inch QHD+ Super AMOLED (570 PPI)
• Processor in USA: Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 (SDM845)
• Processor Internationally: Samsung Exynos 9810
• RAM: 4 or 6 GB
• Internal Storage: 64GB, 128GB (options)
• MicroSD Slot: Yes, 256GB potential
• Connectivity: Bluetooth LE, NFC, USB-C, Cat 18 LTE support
• Camera (backside): Single lens: 12MP (f/2.4, 52mm, 1/3.6, 1 µm, AF), OIS, phase detection autofocus, 2x optical zoom, LED flash

The Samsung Galaxy S9 will almost certainly be revealed alongside the Galaxy S9 Plus. This larger device will have similar specs to its brethren, but they won’t be exactly alike. Pay close attention to the camera setup when the time is right. This bigger device will set itself aside on its back.

• Processor in USA: Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 (SDM845)

The event where the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus will be revealed will take place on February 25th, 2018. We’ll be bringing you hands-on views of whatever Samsung has to offer at that time. Until then, decide for yourself if Samsung’s devices can possibly live up to the hype they’ve generated already.
