The rumors of the two upcoming Samsung most anticipated flagships are starting to pop out around the web, and if by any chance you can’t wait to see them, there is a brief chance of the South Korean giant showcase both handsets in the next CES 2018.
Reports come from Venture Bet and according to them Samsung plans to showcase both Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus during the annual fair, happening in Las Vegas, two months ahead, on January 2018. That’s earlier than expected, considering that Samsung usually holds the Galaxy launch events around February at MWC. However this isn’t discarded since thecompany can use the CES2018 to only share some details, with a full release happening in fact at the MWC 2018.
According to rumors, the Galaxy S9 and S9+ are codenamed as Star 1 and Star 2 respectively. Both handsets should retain the Super AMOLED Infinite display seen in the Galaxy S8 series, however the handset may receive a different treatment on the rear design.

Galaxy S8, S8+ and Note 8 have one similarity that was overly criticized by users and media, its fingerprint placement right aside its rear camera. According to recent leaks the S9 and S9+ Fingerprint will be placed below the Camera, a way more natural and ergonomic placement.
Besides the size difference between Galaxy S9 and S9+, the handsets may also differ in specifications. The Galaxy S9+ is expected to sport a dual camera setup with 6GB of RAM, while the Galaxy S9 should count with a single unit and “only” 4GB of RAM.
Other expected common features include 64 GB of storage space, 3.5mm headset jack (thanks Samsung) and AKG stereo speakers, marking Samsung first step into high quality sound on its smartphones. Both handsets will be powered by Snapdragon 845 or Exynos 9810 depending from Market.
For now that’s everything, so if this reports are accurate the S9 and S9+ full specifications may show up earlier than expected, specially when the S8 took a time to debut, after Note 7 fiasco. So far, are you excited for the next generation of Samsung flagships?
