Samsung has never disappointed us when it comes to innovation and we have always been stunned by them. Well, we do pay price for it but it’s worth it. Let it be wireless charging, or iris scanner in the latest galaxy S8. Although Samsung has been toung-tied about the forthcoming smartphone, there are  lots of blabber bubbles bursting out there. Here’s a roundup of expected features and specifications that we expect Samsung to incorporate in it’s upcoming flagship S-series phone.

Hardware

Samsung S9 is expected to feature an octacore qualcomm snapdragon 830 chipset clocked at 3.9ghz with 4/ 6 GBs of RAM with GPU to be adreno 540. These specifications are enough to make sure the phone’s blazing fast performance. Talking about internal memory, We think it will be available in 2 variations viz 64GB and 128GB. Talking about battery capacity, Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ came up with 3000mAh and 3500 mAh respectively. With an upgrade in the smartphone’s hardware we also expect the battery capacity to slightly increase in S9. Just like Oneplus’s dash charging tech, Samsung is working on a tech called ‘Flash-charge’ which is expected to charge the phone upto 70% in about 25 minutes. Although it seems way too futuristic, but the pace of Innovation today makes it seem on the horizon. One of the things that Samsung has a magic touch on is design.(We already saw that in S8)which is why we are expecting S9 too to be a design master piece with it’s bezelless display and even sleeker design.

Display

Samsung S8’s bezelless (almost) display was a bombshell along with gorilla glass 4’s protection. We are expecting S9 to carry forward this astounding display design along with 3d touch technology. 3d touch technology is the pressure sensitive touch technology which enables the user to do more than ever with games and apps. Speaking of the display quality and resolution, it will again be top-notch. (sAMOLED; 2560×1440). Also, we expect Samsung devlopers to make S9’s display VR ready. Virtual reality is a feature that all the latest flagships are incoporating in handsets and it is a must for all the upcoming flagships too. Lately, we have experienced best performances of cameras with 4k support, similarly we are speculating Samsung to come up with a 4k display for better view. Another astounding display feature S9 may feature is Always-on Display tech. It’s already on few of smartphones and we don’t think Samsung’s gonna lag back.

Camera

Dual cameras are here. Be it Apple’s iphone7+ or Huawei Honor 6x, Dual camera has become an USP for major smartphones in the market. Samsung S9 is also being suggested to feature dual cameras being 20 megapixel shooters with capabilities of shooting 4k videos.We also expect it to come with so-far most efficient OIS for better video-making experience along with PDAF (Phase Detection Auto Focus). A CMOS sensor with f/1.7 aperture in primary camera has also become one of the must-haves. For a wierd reason, Samsung has been reluctant about improving it’s selfie camera drastically. The upcoming beast is expected to feature a wide lens selfie camera with f/2.0 aperture and a single tone led front facing flash. Let’s see if this time, we get to see Samsung doing wonders with it’s front facing camera.

Lately, Samsung is found filing patents for a new technology which is rumoured to be the bendable dual display tech. Although it seems way too futuristic but it is possible for samsung to take it’s fans with a bow. Moto Mods were recently in talks because of it’s mini projector feature in one of the mods. Samsung might also feature it in its upcoming smartphone. Apart from this, It is also expected that S9 may feature dolby atmos sound even though it is patented with lenovo rightnow and the the technology is not really new, Samsung might consider it as it’s game in stereo music playing has never been that good. It is also being said that it might get rid of it’s headphone jack although it’s not a feature. In the latest MWC, we witnessed no-contact-wireless-charging concept. That is you enter a room and your device starts getting charged. As simple as connecting to a WiFi network. This too looks futuristic but let’s not forget Samsung has proved itself to be pioneer in the traditional wireless charging tech and might even be the first one to innovate that.

Samsung S9 release date

Samsung has always looked for biggest platforms available to launch their new phones. If carefully noticed, one can also tell that they always follow a particular pattern when it comes to introduce a new product of theirs. Look at the chart below:

Galaxy S Series phone Official Release Date
Galaxy S 4th June, 2010
Galaxy S2 2nd May, 2011
Galaxy S3 29th May, 2012
Galaxy S4 27th April, 2013
Galaxy S5 11th April, 2014
Galaxy S6 12th June, 2015
Galaxy S7 11th March, 2016
Galaxy S8 21st April, 2017
Galaxy S9 10 April, 2018 (Expected)

If we take a look at the history of Samsung’s Galaxy S series phone launch dates over the years, we can notice the pattern. It is always released in first quarter of the year. We’ll probably get to see the S9 officially on 10th April, 2018. There is a high probability it might launch in MWC’18 but even if Samsung does so, the device itself will not be available to consumers before the first quarter of 2018.

With an extended array of features that we have speculated, it’s quite possible that this phone might cost a hefty amount. Given that S8 costed around 850$, S9 will also be in the similar price range of $800-$850 in the USA market for factory unlocked version, around around 560 GBP in the UK market, near about Rs. 50,000 for Indian consumers, around 1100$ in Australia, 670 euros and 970 Canadian dollars.

    Reasons to not buy the Samsung GalaxyS8
    Do not take us in the wrong way, The Samsung Galaxy S8 most likely is going to be the best Android smartphone of the year.
    But, we still think that you should hold off on buying the Galaxy S8. And either go in for some other smartphone or wait till the next Galaxy Note or Galaxy S9 launches.

    as a die hard samsung fan ,,,, i was quite not impressed with new samung galaxy s8 ,,, yahh it has completely enhanced hardware feature but u guyz are samsung always come up with great ideas but this time completely disappointed i was expecting something new in technology, something new doesnt mean the hardware improvement but it must be like dramatic change in mobile device technology in 2014 when first note edge and then in 2015 enhanced edge display in galaxy s6 edge it was worth but continuing same with enhanced specification is something good but its not a samsung thing,,, its kind of apple thing ,,,,what really makes samsung as samsung was they where always come up with greater ideas and something new which we cant even imagine ,,, thats a samsung thing ,,,, to amaze ,,,,, hopefully next time u guyz do amaze us in samsung galaxy s9.

    Does the new device have an RGB or Pentile matrix display? A little concearned that you are pushing mobile VR when the S7 was terrible for it because of a combination of 1440p and pentile. since you have kept 1440p have you changed the display technology to make VR useable? screendoor effect makes S7 VR useless.
    Needless to say I have just ordered the S8 + as found a good deal and can upgrade after 12 months so won’t be tied to it and will be able to get the S9 when it comes. But I’d still like to know if it’s RGB or pentile.

  4. Arvin says:

    No matter how good the specs of a Samsung phone is, after 6 months or so ~ the phone just simply slows down for some reason. Even after a full wipe and factory reset. It’s not as snappy as it once was. It didn’t just happened to me, also with my friends and family who owns Samsungs.

    • Lukman says:

      Agreed !!

    • Jason says:

      Samsung getting worse just drip feeding technology not actually leaping forward anymore.
      The specs on s8 are to similar to the s7.
      The Samsung flagships have become a cash cow

    • Rehan says:

      Bought note 5 when it came out new and it lasted 6 months before the whole phone was falling apart the AMOLED started leaking on its own and spread on the screen making the Phone unusable, Spen stopped working, Volume and lock key stopped working as it wore out nd got stuck, c’mon sumsung atleast use good quality material for such high end expensive phone SMH

    • Abhìshek says:

      i have the oneplus 3t awesome phone ever dash charge is cool i never use samsung because of battery and performance its lag after few month of use… 3t costs half of samsung and give better experience then samsung..

    • Nilay says:

      Though it’s good for the brand to not make a perfect smartphone and to keep some good things for the following year’s flagship, we want some more refinements to really focus on Samsung’s flagship only and not look for alternatives in search of better quality in specific areas. We want these additional features in Galaxy Note 8 or Galaxy S9 : Dual rear cameras (’cause, why not?), Larger batteries (we choose consistency over thinness), stereo speakers (can’t confirm if S8 and S8 Plus have two), more stock android-like interface with less pre installed useless apps, Fingerprint sensor below the “dual cameras” and a true tone led flash. I hope Samsung will listen to its customers. We love you, Samsung.

    • Jaden says:

      “Make your old phone useful” . Yeah I’ll use my phone that doesn’t explode to trade in a phone that explodes.. My safety doesn’t matter but at least i am keeping up with the trend

  5. Carlie says:

    I had note 7 but I was forced to replace it with s7 or do refund but I chose s7 coz I love samsung

  6. Diekson says:

    Samsung only knows how to create junk, manufactures so much model and does not update 5 of 100% of the handsets overdue in Brazil besides being so expensive that we have to work 4 months to buy one of R $: 3,950.00 and when we buy if it falls already It was not worth it, if water comes in which they say it is resistant to what it already was, 3,950.00 thrown away. The handsets is only beautiful but the technology a TNT.

  7. Antuan says:

    Shut up and take my money. This Galaxy is amazing and looks beatiful, i’m really impressed how Samsung smartphones are at the same level as iPhones.

  8. Huy says:

    Just like s6 to s7 is more perfect, more beautiful. Vs s8 is the first samsung phone to break the traditional design so meticulous yet to be sure perhaps Samsung Galaxy S9 will be much better. Still like s

  9. Diaz says:

    I have A a s7 flat and its pretty good, against water 10/10, very fast and comfortable but there is almost no difference between s7 and s8 so ill wait till samsung galaxy s9 come out

  10. Rahul says:

    No more Samsung..These phone are just show piece..Performance is inversely proportional to look and feature..was Already had been a victim of a edge last year

  11. Kristin says:

    I hate my curved screen. Every screen protector cracks on the curve. Horrible idea. Time to switch I guess!

  12. Marcy says:

    I wouldn’t buy anything Samsung, they sell terrible products and dont’ honor recalled products. shut them down

  13. Timothy says:

    I’m inviting this phone into my heart and into my bedroom.

  14. Akshay says:

    Who thinks Samsung is going sell 65″ TV as a Samsung S9 next year. Dear Samsung, don’t you think its time to say good bye to smart phones? What’s next?

  15. Adrian says:

    Samsung isn’t the only phone that is using Android OS. I would suggest you take a look at other brands that are just as powerful as any Samsung products. I for one switch over to LG and using a LG V20. I really enjoy the phone and would advice any friends to explore others.

  16. Dexter says:

    And apple products cannot never stop copying ideas. Ohh what does Apple have? Phone and laptop that’s so sad.

    • Santhosh says:

      What’s so unexpected in that 😕
      Samsung is always better than iPhone.

    • Hrisikesh says:

      Good joke… That’s what peasants say when they can’t afford an iPhone

    • Ujjal says:

      Hrisikesh I guess, you live under a rock. So let me tell you sir, that both almost cost the same. If one can buy S8 or will s9, they can easily buy an so called i-Phone also. Its just about their preferences

    • Aayush says:

      Moreover , most of the hardware parts of iphone are made by samsung

    • deva says:

      Hrisikesh …i own a 58k samsung s7 edge..and iphone 7 low at price

    • Lekhraj says:

      Hrisiki whatever your name is, I can afford an iPhone but I have brain so I went for Samsung flagship, and even if iPhone costs 100 rupees, I won’t waste my money on it, I would spend 50k on Samsung.

    • Aarush says:

      Hrisikesh the only highlight of your low class life​ must be owning an iPhone so that your friends and acquaintances can think big of you when in reality you’re the kind of guy who only shops at stores that sell damaged or smuggled goods at an 80% off. Fun fact- the low class peasant-like traits don’t go away even when you own an iPhone.

      Ps- Samsung phones cost almost the same or in some cases more than an iPhone.

    • Hrisikesh says:

      Whatever, android caught up with iPhone, so stfu and stop comparing them, they’re meant for 2 different markets. But the ones who talk sh*t about iPhones are the ones who cant afford it so they talk trash about it. SIMPLE

    • Paras says:

      Hrisikesh you condescending piece of sh*t, i own a Samsung s7 edge which cost me more than 50k when i bought it. And now I’m gonna buy an s8 next month which will cost me more than 55k (i can easily buy an iphone 7 with that money). So stop saying that people who talk trash about apple cant afford to buy one, you dumb shit

    • Vishal says:

      Lol, I phone 7 is 50 k and s 8 is more than 50 k, so who is peasant now, typical idiot Apple boy, That’s why we buy smartphone covers lol, proud s7 edge owner, iPhone still sucks

  17. Yan says:

    New bomb?

  18. Jared.tasil says:

    How far can we really go with Mobile? The prices are getting outrageous. People practically finance cell phones now. I mean sure they will continue to get better speeds, better cameras, more space, updated UI etc but when will it stop? But how far can it really go? They are already getting too large. We need the speeds and space in the compact, 5″ versions.

    • Eric says:

      S9, S10, S11, S12 etc. Might not be alive when the S64 comes out but hey, technology doesn’t stop.

      • Jared.tasil says:

        I know it won’t stop. But what is really necessary on a phone that isn’t there already? Anyone really need something or just want? I think phones are fine where they are. You have tablets, laptops, computers for everything else.

  19. Don.Beary says:

    that curved screen nonsense is becoming annoying .. you try finding a full coverage glass screen saver that isn’t just stuck down at the edges, or by little dots all over the screen … or have the full coverage plastic ones get wrinkled by a case

    • Mario says:

      this. I liked the S8 Plus but disliked how I couldn’t fully protect its touchscreen.

    • Stephen says:

      The curved screen also lends itself to accidental selection by the palm of the hand AND the edges of many Web sites curve down the edge and become difficult to read and use. It sure is pretty though. Form over function!

    • Filip says:

      Did you actually try the S8?
      Palm rejection on the S8 is awesome, I do agree that it was bad on the S7.
      The curvature isn’t so big that it eats content, it’s minimal and about functionality… Well that’s different for everyone, someone will find it useful someone won’t.
      The only thing that I dislike about curved screens is the fragility, and that’s​ about it.

  20. Stephen says:

    What features could the S9 have that would make a person want one? I haven’t seen any features of the S8 that make it worth getting over an S7. The iris scan feature is a joke. It’s been demonstrated that a photograph can fool it.
