A few days ago, we heard a rumor that Samsung will bring its new flagships Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ at Consumer Electronics Show (CES). The event will take place in Las Vegas in January 2018. Now, the official sources of the company have trashed this news. The company says that ‘it is unlikely’ to bring new flagships in this event. Instead, the company will follow its traditions of unveiling the flagships at Mobile World Congress (MWC) at the end of February. Last year, the tech giant had unveiled its Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ at the end of March.
The news has appeared in Korea Herald which is a leading English Daily in Seoul. The newspaper has also pointed out that both the upcoming flagships will not have an in-display fingerprint scanner. This is because of some technical issues. The experts are hoping that the company will fix the fingerprint scanner at some point below rear camera.
Evan Blast of Venture Beat had said last month that the Korean Tech giant is all set to bring Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ for the first public appearance in CES. Some recent reports have also published the specs of both these flagship devices. According to these reports, the Galaxy S9 will feature a 5.8-inch display while the Galaxy S9+ will have a larger 6.2-inch display. The company will use Super AMOLED infinity displays with curved edges.
There are also reports that Galaxy S9+ will possess a dual camera set up at the back. The company will bring two versions of this flagship device too. The US version will feature a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC. The global version will have an Exynos Chip with same properties. Here, it is important to mention that Qualcomm has announced Snapdragon 845 SoC. This will have faster Kryo 385 CPU, Adreno 630 GPU, and X20 LTE modem.
