Samsung to compete with Facebook; new social media service in works

Samsung Galaxy S9 S9

The S9 is expected to be announced at Samsung's Galaxy Unpacked 2018 event in Barcelona on Feb 25, just ahead of the Mobile World Congress.

Last year's Galaxy S8 started at a very lofty £689, which was a big leap upwards from the £569 price tag of the Galaxy S7. Under the hood, a powerhouse processor from Samsung's own kitchens, the Exynos 9810 clocked at 1.9GHz in normal and 2.9GHz in turbo modes will run the new flagship, along with 4GB of RAM and 6GB of RAM respectively. However, there is no word about the optical image stabilisation plus laser and dual-pixel autofocus feature in the upcoming smartphones.

The report suggests that the smartphones will be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor in the USA and China, while the Samsung Exynos 9810 SoC will be available in other regions.

Both the phones will also both feature an 8-megapixel f/1.7 front-facing selfie snappers.

The units will be going to witness a 3000mAh and 3500mAh battery with wireless charging and fast charging in additional features. So, we will have to wait for the official launch.

The standard model Galaxy S9 is likely to come with a 5.8-inch Super AMOLED 18:5:9 QHD+ Infinity Display that manages a hefty 1440 x 2960 resolution. Early buyers get free memory cards and other accessories, though the Galaxy S9's preorder perks haven't yet leaked. "In this way, the latest version of Samsung's brand sound has the power to relax the mind and heal the soul, thus resonating with all who hear it, regardless of their age". The first actually hit Geekbench back in December with scores of 2422 in the single-core test and 8351 in the multi-core one. The phones will have stereo speakers. You are unlikely to notice a difference between the two in real-life usage. Few recent reports also talked about the Animoji like feature. The Redditor also had good things to say about the Galaxy S9 camera, which offers dramatically improved photo quality as well as 4K video support at higher frame rates.
