Everything we know about Samsung Galaxy S9

Samsung galaxy S series is one of the most awaited smartphone series every year. Samsung Galaxy S8 was a huge success for samsung and even after a year it stands strong. So the most exciting event of 2018 for samsung is happening on 25th February as they are going to launch Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+. Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ will officially be unveiled on February 25 in Barcelona ahead of the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2018. According to some reports, Samsung’s new Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ are also expected to be priced higher than the previous year’s Galaxy S8 series.

The biggest change with the Samsung Galaxy S9 series is expected on the camera front and the company’s teasers have indicated this as well. The design will continue to remain the metal and glass one that we’ve seen on Samsung Galaxy S7, S8, Note8, etc. Samsung will also introduce a new version of the DeX Pad for the Galaxy S9 series, where a user can plug in the device and enjoy a desktop-like experience on the mobile itself. The DeX Pad was introduced last year with the Galaxy S8 series.

Just like any other phone, before the launch the internet is filled up with lots of leaks. Here are all the leaks of the Galaxy S9 as they happened

Specs: The US looks set to get a phone powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845, and the rest of the world Samsung's own Exynos 9810 chipset. This means 30% improved power, albeit still with 4GB of RAM inside. This will be more than enough grunt, but those that lust after specs for the sake of them will be disappointed not to see 6GB,

Battery: While it looks like we're going to get a 3,000mAh power pack - the same as on the Galaxy S8 - the improved CPU inside will likely lead to a real boost in battery life. This means the Galaxy S9 should last easily over a day for more users than ever before.

Other key features: A recent promo conformed animated emoji, where faces are turned into cartoons, will be present on the Galaxy S9 as a response to Apple's Animoji.

Stereo speakers will also be a welcome addition for anyone tired of the mono-firing single outlet on previous phones - we don't expect this to be industry-leading in the same way as Sony and Apple, but at least using your phone to play music or movies will be more pleasant.

An improved iris scanner is rumored to be Samsung's play against Apple's Face ID too, but given the poor performance of the sensor last year we don't expect this to be a big feature.
