Samsung Galaxy S9 is a new phone that we are expecting to see in 2018. We now have a concept render of how that phone may look like.
The first thing that you can see on these renders is how it features a fingerprint scanner that is now located below the rear camera. This is a better location than what we saw on Galaxy S8. On S8 the fingerprint reader is located on the side of the camera. Which makes it more complicated to reach and sometimes you hit the camera instead. Also the S8 sensor many times cant detect your finger. I never have this problem with Huawei Mate 9.
You see various colours in these renders as Black, Silver, Gray, Blue and Gold edition. In terms of specs I have talked in the past that S9 will probably feature the latest Snapdragon 845 chipset with new Adreno 630 GPU, latest Bluetooth 5.0 with better wireless audio codecs and Quick Charge 4+.
Other specs we probably will see is a 5.8″ Super AMOLED vibrant screen. I hope we see a 8GB RAM model of the S9. And we may see stock storage inside S9 to be 128GB. Which is a step up from 64GB. But it wouldn’t be too strange, we already see low end Android smartphones now coming out with 64GB of storage.
It looks like S9 will not have a major redesign. That it mostly will just tweak the fingerprint scanner location. So a bit like Apple when they kept same design from iPhone 6 to iPhone 8. Not any major redesigns on most phones these days. It seems like they are working more on trying to improve the software these days. But we are reaching a stage where most phones have become so good that you don’t need to upgrade every year.
