Samsung to unveil Galaxy S9 at MWC, not CES

Samsung mobile chief DJ Koh at the CES 2018 confirmed that the company will be launching its first flagship smartphone at MWC 2018 conference. But what we don't know are the specs, or any standout features that Samsung's next flagship phone might bring to the table, at least not officially. Samsung Display has been working on development of in-folding panel with a goal of making this panel so durable that it will not have any problems even if it is folded and unfolded repeatedly for more than 200,000 times. Moving down, we see "Stereo Speakers tuned by AKG".

Many expected the South Korean electronics giant to announce the Galaxy S9 during this week's Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The image, which has on Reddit, details various key specifications of the Galaxy S9.

One rumor that's been doing the rounds is that the S9's camera will feature a variable aperture, which this leak seems to confirm, but otherwise it'll be the same "dual pixel" 12MP shooter with optical image stabilization found on the S8. Samsung placed the same camera tech on its premium flip-phone W2018, which launched back in December. According to the leaks, the primary lens will have an f/1.5 aperture while the secondary camera will come with an f/2.4 aperture.

What's also worth noting is the "Super Slow-mo" feature which we reckon will compete with Sony's 960 FPS slow-mo. This one has a lot of hype, though word on the Galaxy S9 Plus has not been made available. A new face scanning security setup too is being touted comprising of improved iris scanners along with P68 levels of water and dust proofing and wireless charging features. Further, Smasung is equipping them with dual rear-facing cameras, USB-C, and 3.5mm headphone jack. On the front there will be an 8-megapixel camera with autofocus. T-Mobile only sells two phones that support 600MHz LTE right now - the LG V30 and Samsung Galaxy S8 Active - but it's said that it'll launch more than 12 600MHz-capable phones in 2018.
