Galaxy S9 Design and Display: What will it look like?
- To be curved on four sides
It was recently noted by a Korean news outlet ETNews that Samsung was experimenting with a new lamination process that would allow phone screens the privilege to be curved on all four edges. It was also said that the technology would be ready by end of the year gone by. So, obviously, the phone in question would become the first one to get onboard with this new concept.
- Size familiar to that of predecessors
A Separate report suggested that new phones are gonna follow the same sizing as seen in Galaxy S8 phones as it has already placed orders for 5.8 inches and 6.2 inches edge to edge curved infinity
- Better placement of fingerprint sensor
It is also being said that finally, Samsung decided to see to the problem of awkward placement of the fingerprint sensors near the rear camera. So, it is being said that this time it will be replaced by
more easier to deal with in-screen fingerprint sensors. That surely is a good news!! It is being said that it might not actually be available for S9, but sure for Note 9.
- New and better camera
Surely its always good bet to invest in the cameras of the new devices in this selfie crazy era. To keep up with the trend, it seems that Samsung has decided to create a camera which will have a capacity to shoot at 1000 frames per second.
- Modular Approach
In a modular approach, devices can be attached to external modules (being physical hardware small devices) to upgrade to or add new features. It’s a similar system to the MotoMods functionality we’ve already seen on flagship Motorola phones – and the Essential Phone.
According to the reports, Samsung is planning to introduce magnetic pins on the back of the phone that will allow external modules to be attached. These modules could include improved camera lenses, a battery pack, or additional sensors.
But due to the idea of modular approach being a flop in the recent history, one can not be sure if these guys are gonna take that risk when so much is at stake.

And now comes the question which matters the most. After all, at the end of the day, it all comes to the fact that how much deeper a hole its gonna dig in user’s pocket?
As of now, there is not much available which can be regarded as credible info when it comes to pricing department. But still, these can’t be cheaper than Galaxy S8 and S8+. Still if one has to guess, it can be said that these are gonna cost between £649 and £799.
Samsung Galaxy S9 Specifications and Features: What’s new?
There is not much information officially out yet. But, we are sure that Samsung will release its upcoming flagship smartphone with either its own processor or the one made by Qualcomm, based on market region. S9 would either sport a Samsung-built Exynos chipset, or a Qualcomm-designed Snapdragon chipset.
