The Samsung Galaxy S9 / S9+ Revealed!

Like the Samsung Galaxy S8, there will be two sizes – the Galaxy S9 with a 5.8″ display, and the larger Galaxy S9+ with a 6.2″ display. The US models will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC, while the rest of the world will receive the Samsung Exynos 9810 SoC instead.

This year though, Samsung will increase the feature differentiation between the two sizes. Let’s take a look…

Memory & Storage

The Samsung Galaxy S9+ will come with 6GB of LPDDR4x memory, with 64 GB, 128 GB and 256 GB storage options, as well as a possible 512 GB model for “select markets” on a “temporary” basis.

The Samsung Galaxy S9 will only come with 4GB of LPDDR4x memory, and either 64 GB or 128 GB of storage.

New Variable Aperture Camera

Samsung will also differentiate the two sizes by offering only dual camera setup from the Galaxy Note8 only in the Galaxy S9+. This is arguably the best dual camera system in the world, offering Live Focus and Dual Capture capability, as well as the ability to switch lenses on-the-fly while recording videos.

The smaller Galaxy S9, on the other hand, will feature the unique variable aperture camera used in the rare and expensive Samsung W2018 smartphone (available only in China). The camera has a mechanical aperture that lets you switch between an incredibly bright f/1.5 aperture, and the f/2.4 aperture for a deeper depth of field.

Because it lacks a second camera, the Galaxy S9 will not support the Live Focus and Dual Capture capability we love so much in the Galaxy Note8. But the variable aperture is a really interesting new feature. We can’t wait to try it out!

Super Slow-Mo

Both smartphones will come with a new Super Slow-mo feature. It allows you to record slow-motion 1080p video at 1,000 fps / 4K video at 120 fps. However, this feature is apparently limited only to models using the Samsung Exynos 9810 SoC.

Fingerprint Sensor

The position of the fingerprint sensor was, finally, brought into central alignment. This makes it easier to use, especially in the Galaxy S9+ because the dual camera setup means the fingerprint sensor is positioned even lower.

The fingerprint sensor’s close proximity to the main camera though means you are still very likely to smudge the lens with your oily fingers.

Bixby & Earphone Port

Despite rumours that Samsung will be ditching the dedicated Bixby button and 3.5 mm earphone port, they will definitely be part of both devices.

Larger Battery

The Samsung Galaxy S9 will boast a slightly larger 3,200 mAh battery than the Galaxy S8‘s 3,000 mAh battery. There is no word on the battery capacity of the larger Galaxy S9+. However, both will support the new 15 W fast wireless charging capability.

AKG-Tuned Stereo Speakers

The two new Samsung flagship smartphones will feature stereo speakers tuned by AKG.
