The Samsung Galaxy S9 is due to be unveiled at 4pm GMT this Sunday (25th February), and you might have noticed a whole bunch of leaks hitting the web over the past couple of weeks. Today was no exception, and we've already seen one leak that reiterates some of the features we already knew about. But there's another leak, which goes into quite a bit of detail.
The leak came from Winfuture.de, and includes detailed specifications for both the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ along with a selection of high-resolution renders. Likely those renders were supposed to be for retailers, but they made their way online instead. So what's to know?
As expected the S9 and S9+ will come with their respective 5.8-inch and 6.2-inch Super AMOLED Infinity displays complete with QHD resolution and 18:5:9 aspect ratio. The processor will be the Exynos 9810 in most markets, while the US shall instead have the Snapdragon 845. The S9 will pack a 3,000mAh battery and 4GB of RAM, with the S9+ upping it to 3,500mAh and 6GB.
As for storage, both phones will have 64GB, with mcroSD expansion up to 400GB. Winfuture's information also reiterates that both phones will have a 12MP camera with a variable 1.5/2.4 aperture, while the S9+ will feature an additional lens with a 2.4 aperture. Again we hear that the phone will include stereo speakers tuned by AKG. We also have an 8MP front camera, and the usual stuff like USB-C, inductive/wireless charging, Bluetooth 5.0, IP68 water/dustproofing, and all running Samsung's variant of Android Oreo.
Supposedly Samsung will be opening up pre-orders after the launch event on 25th February, ready for an 8th March release.
The site also shared a number of renders revealing both phones, and in a variety of colours, though the site did get a little bit of help from leaking king Evan Blass. The S9 will be available in Midnight Black, Coral Blue, Lilac Purple, and Titanium Grey. The S9 Plus will be in Coral Blue, Titanium Grey, and Lilac Purple.
Apparently, though, Titanium Grey won't be available in Europe, which is a bit shit.
That's most of the big information for you, so you should go into Sunday's launch knowing exactly what to expect. In fact, it's not exactly clear what Samsung will be showing off that we haven't already seen, but at least there's still room for a surprise or two. We don't know what this year's pre-order gift will be for one.
