South Korean tech giant Samsung is still tightlipped about its upcoming smartphone-the Samsung Galaxy 9. The tech giant did not release any official details of the Galaxy S9 but leaked renders and rumors about prices and release date are available online.

In fact, two leaked renders of Samsung Galaxy S9 have appeared on the web earlier today. Samsung users can actually check the renders of the upcoming high-end device if it is consistent to the previous leaked details of the Galaxy S9.

The Samsung Galaxy S9 renders were made possible thru the collaboration with Forbes and Ghostek, a protective case manufacturer. What is clear and certain is that the render was based on the inputs given by the sources from among Samsung’s supply chains.

It can be recalled that Samsung had created a similar render of Galaxy S9. The company released it last month when the recent two renders have yet to be announced publicly.

What are the new  Galaxy S9 rumored specs?

According to sources who are privy about the Galaxy S9, Samsung is set to debut both the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus. However, there is much difference in terms of processors and the camera set-ups. Of the two devices, Android users may enjoy navigating the mobile screen of Galaxy S9 Plus with 6.2 inches display output.

Such feature is can be found in Galaxy Note 8 but this time, Samsung said it will continue to improve the delivery of their services. It will also feature a 3.5mm headphone jack and a microSD card slot in its SIM tray.

Meanwhile, Samsung will likely to announce the Galaxy S9 interactions come February 21 and will be released late March.

Samsung Galaxy S9 Announced For February Release

A Bloomberg report surfaced on Tuesday disclosed that Samsung is planning to unveil a new phone on March. Earlier on, rumors in Korea indicate that Samsung will release Samsung Galaxy 9 in late February during the MWC 2018.


The news has sparked excitement from avid Samsung mobile users. Many of the are expecting that the company will unveil Samsung Galaxy 9 in January to counter Apple’s iPhone X. But Bloomberg’s recent report corroborates the aforesaid information.


However, Bloomberg has noted that the popular Galaxy S9’s planned release is still subject for changes. It was also learned that Galaxy 9 will not only have similar features but also equipped with upgraded cameras.


Also, in terms of Samsung’s upcoming flagship’s design, some of Galaxy 9’s earlier leak shows that it will have similar design features with that of Galaxy 8. Basically, Samsung wants Galaxy 9 to  be similar with Galaxy 8 because it wants to improve the user’s experience.

What we know so far is that the upcoming Galaxy S9 will be powered with Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor. Rumors have it that the phone will launch with a maximum of 512 GB of random access memory. This is  closely related to an earlier report that suggests that Galaxy S9 will have a 512 GB flash modules.



And here’s the catch: the Galaxy S9 will be equipped with a fingerprint sensor to improve the phone’s  level of security. The fingerprint sensor will be installed at the back part of the phone and not under the screen which is common to Samsung’s rival phones.



Samsung S9: Can Users Expect a Better Phone Next Year?

It’s been a routine that Samsung releases new phone models every year. In 2017, they released their Galaxy S8 and S8+ which are great phones by the way. Next year, despite being called “rumors”, the company (for sure) is  going to release their Samsung S9.

Many users might be wondering — with great phones already released, what else can Samsung offer?

According to the latest leaks, the phone is said to be released on February or March 2018. That’s just a few months from now.

The price might be $720 or more. Yes, it’s going to be an expensive one.

For the screen, there are whispers that the newest Samsung addition is going to have an in-screen fingerprint scanner. It might also have a water-repellent coating. But again, these are just rumors and are not yet confirmed by the company.

It also has the possibility of having the same screen size like the Galaxy S8 which is 5.8 inches.

As for the battery size, it is leaked to have a bigger and more efficient battery than its predecessor.

We can expect that the camera is going to be superb. Why? Because Samsung’s past phone models have great camera.

For gamer peeps who are vouching for a 6GB RAM, we think this is not possible. The company might just stick to its 4GB RAM even for their high-end phones. But let’s just hope that they’ll consider the additional RAM.

It is also rumored that this will be Samsung’s foldable phone but we still have to wait a few months for us to find out.
