Samsung's next Galaxy smartphones may be shown off in just a few weeks' time.
(CCM) — Samsung is planning to take the wraps off its Galaxy S9 handsets early next January as details about the next-generation handsets begin to leak out, according to a Venturebeat report.
Two new smartphones — the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ — will be unveiled at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, the report reveals.
Codenamed Star 1 and Star 2, the two phones will feature the same 5.8-inch and 6.2-inch curved Super AMOLED "infinity" displays as this year's Galaxy S8 and S8+ offerings and will likely be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor. Both will be nearly identical in appearance to their predecessors.
But the report says that the two models will have more to set them apart from each other than just the screen size. Venture Beat has been told that the S9+ will have 6 GB of RAM compared to the S9's 4 GB, and it will also feature a second rear camera like that one found on Samsung's Note8 device.
The two models have much in common as well. Both will have 64 GB of storage, and both will feature a traditional 3.5mm headphone jack. The fingerprint reader on both devices will be relocated from its current position on the S8 device to the bottom of the rear of the case, and both will also provide sound through new AKG stereo speakers, according to the report.
