Samsung Galaxy S9 tipped in early impressions, cases on sale

Samsung launched the Galaxy Tab S3 at Mobile World Congress in 2017, so it's logical to assume a follow-up model will be launched this year, but this is the first piece of evidence to suggest a new tablet is on the way.

An anonymous Reddit user reportedly claims that he has spent 20 minutes of hands-on time with a Galaxy S9.

The same South Korea-based publication also mentioned that the Galaxy S9 will feature both iris and facial recognition biometric features. On the one hand, that might be understandable given how Samsung reserved the Snapdragon 835 for the Galaxy S8 until it launched in April. Apart from that, the Galaxy S9 will feature the fingerprint sensor just below the camera on the rear side of the phone instead of being on the side of the camera lens in Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus.

A camera which builds on, and improves, this is what Samsung will have to deliver as part of its "camera reimagined" play. In simple terms, while the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8+ were more or less the same deal differing only in screen size and battery capacities, the Galaxy S9 and the Galaxy S9+ will be a lot different from each other.

The biggest highlight of both the phones is something called "variable aperture" for the cameras. Through this video, viewers discover so a phone that features a style always also borderless coupled with a dual sensor camera that promises, once again, handsome shots. This is from an unnamed source, so we cannot confirm this. That being said, the upcoming flagship device will allow Samsung to join the $1,000 smartphone league with Apple. It looks like this year, Samsung has chose to do something similar to what Apple does with its iPhones, with only the Plus version featuring the dual cameras. Unlike Bitmoji or Animoji, however, you will be able to take a picture of yourself and import it in.
