Galaxy S9 Reveal Reportedly Scheduled For CES 2018

The pair of S9 models will also retain the 3.5mm headphone jack

Both 2018 Samsung flagship smartphones are being readied for a surprise CES 2018 tease, reports VentureBeat, making for an early January cameo.

The renders, which were obtained by BGR, show a rugged GHOSTEK case that wraps around the Galaxy S9. And the publication cites that they've verified these renders with other sources of them, and claim the renders as accurate.

Apparently codenamed Star 1 and Star 2, the Samsung Galaxy S9 (model number SM-G960) and Galaxy S9+ (model number SM-G965) should sport Super AMOLED Infinity screens similar to those seen on the Galaxy S8 and S8+: 5.8 inches and 6.2 inches, respectively.

The best news, though, might be that Samsung is reportedly moving the rear fingerprint reader down, so it should be easier to reach on a regular basis. That said, there will be some minor changes here and there though.


Lastly, both devices are expected to keep the headphone jack, which is unheard of in new flagship phones.

It also appears that Samsung is set to respond to user demands by shifting the fingerprint scanner to a more central position, after complaints from S8 users that it was placed too close to the camera lens. There's also reliable information that suggests that the phone will be powered by Samsung's next-generation Exynos 9810 processor, or the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 in a few different areas like the United States.

While the S8/S8+ were identical in terms of RAM, the S9/S9+ will depart from this, with the S9+ being launched with 6GB of RAM, while the S9 will remain at 4GB, as well as coming with a dual-camera setup.
