Earlier this year, Samsung introduced an impressive infinity display design with its Galaxy S8 series. Apple followed suit with the equally stunning iPhone X that showcased the same bezel-less feature.
But it seems like smartphone users aren't satisfied with what the market has to offer as talks of Samsung’s next flagship start to go into full swing.
In case you’re interested, we’ve compiled some relevant bits below about Samsung’s upcoming S9 device that’s slated to be released next year.
Return of the mini
We should all expect the S9 line to have both the regular and plus versions of a smartphone device, which has become the standard during flagship launches. There’s news, however, that we’ll probably be seeing the comeback of a third semi-flagship model with the rumored 5-inch Galaxy S9 Mini.
Details on the tech specs for the Galaxy S9 continue to be scarce but it will reportedly retain the same screen real estate found on the S8 (5.8”) and S8+(6.2”) models. It’s also safe to say that the S9 line will at least have its minimum components based on the features of the S8 and the recently released Galaxy Note 8.
If you’re an Android user who’s thinking of switching to the other side due to the iPhone X’s nifty Facial ID feature, you’ll be pleased to know that there’s a huge possibility that the S9 line will have its own version of facial recognition. This is according to Ice Universe, who happens to be a reliable smartphone info leaker from China.
When Samsung launched the S8 line, it was the first smartphone to boast the powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset. The South Korean conglomerate is apparently planning to repeat this feat by launching the S9 line with the yet to be released Qualcomm Snapdragon 845.
Samsung has yet to announce a date for their S9 launch, but based on previous release patterns, it looks like the flagship device will either be unveiled during the CES tech show in Las Vegas this January or the Mobile World Congress happening in Barcelona from late February to March.
