2017 CES CES 2018 Galaxy S9 & S9+ Rumors & Leaks Samsung

The Galaxy S9 and S9+ will reportedly be shown off at CES 2018

We’re only a few weeks away from 2018 and it seems like Samsung wants to unveil their next flagship phone a bit earlier than usual. According to Venture Beat’s Evan Blass, Samsung will reportedly show off the Galaxy S9 and S9+ at CES 2018 in January.

The S9 and S9+ are said to look virtually identical to the S8 and S8+ meaning that the new phones will retain the Super AMOLED Infinity Displays at 5.8-inch and 6.2-inch respectively, while also keeping the metal and glass design. The codenames for the phones are Star 1 (model number SM-G960) and Star 2 (model number SM-G965).

Both phones are said to be powered by a 10-nanometer processor which signs point to the Snapdragon 845 and a similar Exynos processor for other regions. Blass also says, that the S9+ will reportedly a dual-camera setup (like on the Note8) and have 6GB of RAM compared to 4GB of RAM in the S9.

Both devices will have 64GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot and retain the 3.5mm headphone jack. The rear-mounted fingerprint sensor will move to the center of the back, below the camera. The fingerprint sensor placement was one of the biggest complaints about the Galaxy S8/S8+ and Note8.

Samsung is reportedly planning on introducing a backward-compatible DeX dock that puts the phone flat and uses the phone’s screen as a touchpad or a virtual keyboard.

Blass says that Samsung will still hold an official launch event for the S9 and S9+ in March but CES will just offer a small taste of what’s to come.
