The phone has been given the model number SM-G8855. Unlike the S9’s 8-megapixel selfie shooter, this phone has a 24-megapixel front camera.
The Samsung Galaxy S9 variant leak also reveals that it will be powered by an octa-core processor, clocked at 2.2GHz or 1.8GHz. It has an expandable memory of 64GB and 4GB RAM. The smartphone also has a 6.28-inch display with 2280×1080 pixel resolution. It is further backed by a 3700mAh battery. There is also a 3.5mm audio jack.
It has also been revealed that the handset will have a rear-fingerprint scanner.
The Samsung Galaxy S9 variant doesn’t reveal any information about its pricing or availability.
A new Galaxy S10 leak had also appeared earlier. It is being alleged that the smartphone’s display will emit sound. This tech will enable the display to cancel out the earpiece, leading to slimmer bezels and more screen space.
If the Galaxy S10 leak is true, then the smartphone will provide a larger display.
Prior to this Galaxy S10 leak, the company had presented this tech at the SID Expo May 2018.
According to The Bell, the company has already started working on its next flagship device. It is expected to be called Samsung Galaxy S10. So the Samsung Galaxy S10 release date could be earlier than expected.
According to the report, the smartphone will be codenamed “Beyond”. Samsung usually gives such codenames to its devices which are under development. The codename defines the gadget’s characteristics. The S9 series was named “STAR”, meanwhile the S8 series was named “Dream”.
The “Beyond” codename indicates that Samsung could be working on a smartphone which hasn’t ever been introduced to the market.
Samsung is also working with Qualcomm, Ezestek, and Synaptics. It is being done to develop fingerprint-on-display (FOD) scanners. According to The Bell, vendors for Galaxy S10 hasn’t been decided yet. It is being speculated that multiple vendors will be selected. This will allegedly be done so that the company has enough FODs during mass production. The report further speculates that the Galaxy S10 will have a 3D sensing module. It will permit an iPhone X-like facial recognition system to the phone.
