The Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ received 3C certification in China last week. This report comes almost a month before the unveiling at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. Samsung is preparing in full to launch the flagships in the Chinese market.
The models, SM-G9650/DS, SM-G9600/DS and the SM-G9608/DS have received 3C certification, of which the first two are speculated to be variants of the Galaxy S9 and S9+, while the SM-9608/DS is said to be the smaller 5.8-inch Galaxy S9+ meant for sale in the Taiwanese market. The DS corresponds to dual sim, meaning all the phi es will have dual SIM/hybrid slots. Other than that, the 3C listing throws light at the charging standards. All three models will come with support for fast charging at 9V/1.67A and 5V/2A.
The Samsung flagships are speculated to come with either the Snapdragon 845 or the Exynos 9810 processor, depending upon the market. In other reports, the Galaxy flagships will come with repositioned fingerprint scanner, a display with a higher aspect ratio than the predecessors, and better cameras, with the Galaxy S9+ sporting a dual camera setup. MWC 2018 isn’t far off, so we will soon know whether these speculations have some weight or not.
