Just a month before Samsung presents the Samsung Galaxy S9 at the Mobile World Congress, leaks are spreading fast. This is what we know so far:
The news is not as good in terms of price. Thanks to Apple, other manufacturers feel comfortable raising the price of flagship phones. The S9 will sell between 950,000 and 999,000 won in Korea, which equates to between 895 and 935 dollars, 100 more than the S8.
Rumor has it that although Samsung is running some new features of the S9, the phone itself will have very little technology. Instead, we are facing a slight improvement from year to year and we will not see anything that looks like a jump in the style of the Apple iPhone X.
According to rumors, one of the key new features will be a super slow camera. The S9 + will probably get double lenses to differentiate the Plus model from the S9 standard. Reports indicate that the camera will record 1080p video with frame rates of up to 480 frames per second.
Another new feature is biometric authentication on the phone. It is likely that Samsung incorporates both a facial scanner and a fingerprint scanner. We do not know if the phone will be compatible with scanning the fingerprints of the screen.
There is no doubt that the S9 will sell well, even as a gradual upgrade, but Samsung should begin to show adequate differentiation if it intends to increase its market share.
