This Packaging Leaks Samsung Galaxy S9 Specs


What is definite right at this very moment is that Samsung has officially confirmed that the new Galaxy S9 smartphone is going to be unveiled at the upcoming Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2018. The MWC 2018, for the uninitiated, is an annual all-mobile technology-related gathering of brands and enthusiasts held in Barcelona, Spain. This year, it will happen in the last week of February.

Now given that we are just a couple of months away from this massive tech expo and the launch of Samsung's next flagship device, leaks and rumors are expected to start flooding the scene again. And one of those leaks is coming in a form of an image showing what claims to be the packaging box of the Galaxy S9, thanks to this Reddit post. This image is showing a few specs that are allegedly to come with the S9 and S9+ variants.

Many of the specs stated on the retail box photo above, there are a couple of new additional and interesting things that Samsung Galaxy S9 will reportedly have. One of those is the variable aperture technology which according to the photo will be at f/1.5 and f/2.4 on the 12MP Super Speed DualPixel rear camera paired with an 8MP selfie camera equipped with Autofocus. Another this is the Super Slow-mo feature which is said to be at about 1000 frames per second (fps).

Then there is also a mention about the stereo speakers and earphones included in the packaging being "tuned by AKG." This could be true since Samsung has bought a company called Harman, AKG is the subsidiary of this audio manufacturer.

In terms of design, almost everyone is expecting almost the same looks from last year's Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ devices with slight tweaks here and there. Samsung is likely to focus more on the device's performance this time. The Infinity Display and overall design of the S8 handsets are pretty gorgeous, so I think a lot of fans will not have a problem with that on the S9 series.

Samsung Galaxy S9 rumored specs:
  • 5.8-inch Quad HD+ Super AMOLED Display
  • Curved Corners
  • Snapdragon 845 or Exynos 9810
  • 4GB RAM
  • 64GB Internal storage
  • 12MP Super Speed DualPixel rear camera with OIS
  • 8MP front camera with Autofocus
  • Stereo Speakers Tuned by AKG
  • IP68 Water and Dust Resistant
  • Iris Scanner
  • Earphones tuned by AKG
  • Wireless Charging
As have already happened before with other brands and products, this could also be just one of those elaborate hoax about the one of the most anticipated and talked about gadgets of the year. And while many of the specs and features mentioned here match with previous rumors about the Galaxy S9, we should still take this with a grain of salt until Samsung officially reveals everything about Galaxy S9 and possibly Galaxy S9 Plus.
