Samsung Galaxy S9: Release date, price, specs and rumours
Samsung Galaxy series is very famous through the globe, As the new year comes, let’s welcome the new galaxy series phone S9, Samsung galaxy lovers are eagerly waiting for the launch or release date of Samsung galaxy S9. So, here we will see the sound on Samsung galaxy S9 price, specification of Samsung galaxy S9 and rumours towards S9.
The Samsung Galaxy S8 hit stores in early 2017, so it makes sense that we’re hearing about the Samsung Galaxy S9, as it might only be months away.
The rumors are coming thick and fast for what the new phone will look like and feature, so we’ve sifted through to bring you the information you need to know about this incoming phone, as well as answering some key questions.
Samsung galaxy lovers are keen to know that what’s the new Samsung Galaxy S9.
A photo seemingly showing the Galaxy S9’s back glass has leaked, as have several case renders. Plus we’ve heard word the Galaxy S9 will keep its 3.5mm headphone jack.
The price range for the S9.
We’re expecting £639 / $725 / AU$1200 based on current projections, as the Galaxy S9 is likely to come in around the same price as its predecessor. Given we’re not expecting massive design changes, we doubt too high a price rise.
The release date of Samsung galaxy S9
We’re expecting a February or March 2018 launch. While recent rumors suggest the S9 will launch in January, that seems too early given people are locked into contract cycles. There was talk that it might be teased at CES in January, before a March launch, but Samsung has now come out and said that any showing of the S9 in January is “unlikely.”
Samsung has moved from strength to strength, and is arguably the most successful Android phone maker of the year. The company is consistently turning out high-quality flagship phones that always review well in our own tests, so it’s fair to say we’re excited to see what’s next.
The working theory is that Samsung plans to release a new top-end phone called the Samsung Galaxy S9 in the early part of next year – we’ll go into more specifics on launch timing further down this page. The handset is expected to introduce a number of hardware and software upgrades, and possibly even a new design.
By the road, Galaxy S series is famous for its outstanding performance of design, Camera, and of course the uniqueness.

Big bang news
- Smaller bezels
- A repositioned fingerprint scanner
Recently we’ve seen both a render video and rendered images supposedly showing the Samsung Galaxy S9, and they show a device that looks very similar to the Samsung Galaxy S8, albeit with the fingerprint scanner moved beneath the camera lens (but not in-screen as some rumors have suggested).
The front and back both look to use curved glass, the bezels are small and there’s both a 3.5mm headphone port and what a Bixby button is presumably. We’ve also seen another leak that suggests the phone will keep its 3.5mm headphone jack, unlike the iPhone range.
Samsung Galaxy S9 camera
A tip-off from South Korea’s ETNews suggests that Samsung is working on a camera sensor that’s capable of shooting at 1,000 frames per second, in a bid to rival the one featured on the Sony Xperia XZ1 and Xperia XZ1 Premium.
The sensor is tipped to enter mass production in November, which should make it possible to be included in the Galaxy S9 – especially given that other components destined for the phone are also expected to be available at the same time
Samsung phones typically ship with two different chips, either of which will be selected for a certain market region where the phone will be on sale. You’ll either get a Samsung-built Exynos chipset, or a Qualcomm-designed Snapdragon chipset.
The Snapdragon 845 chip has already been confirmed by Qualcomm, and will once again be manufactured by Samsung’s chip-making division. It will be built on an efficient 10nm process, just like the Snapdragon 835 before it.
The 10nm chip architecture denotes the manufacturing process, and simply refers to the distance between each transistor – those are the tiny electronic switches that enable computing tasks to take place. A smaller number is better, because it means you can fit more transistors onto a single chip, paving the way for more power and better power efficiency overall.
Finally, we expect that the Samsung Galaxy S9 will run on Google’s new Android Oreo software, which you can read about here: Android 8.0 Oreo.
Samsung hasn’t launched any phones with Oreo on board just yet, but it’s heavily rumoured that the company is already hard at work on an Android 8.0 update for the Galaxy S8. That’s partly why we’d be very surprised if the Samsung Galaxy S9 didn’t have Oreo on board from the get-go.
We’re also going by precedent, as new Samsung Galaxy S-series phones typically always launch with the latest version of Google’s Android mobile OS on board.
But Samsung, which sells more phones globally than Apple or any other vendor, is rumored to have no shortage of new, cool features on deck for its next flagship — which we’ll call the Galaxy S9 for now — due sometime around… well, that’s actually up for debate.
Rumor on S9 :
It might not be called the Galaxy S9
The iPhone X, named in honor of the device’s 10th anniversary created a problem — or perhaps an opportunity — for Samsung. If the company sticks with the natural sequence of its own naming convention, it risks creating an inferiority complex among customers; who wants a Galaxy S9 when you can already get an iPhone X (pronounced “ten”)? According to Forbes, Samsung may follow suit with the Galaxy X. Of course, they could one up Apple by going to the Galaxy S11 — or something else entirely.
We know that the next flagship will run Samsung’s own Exynos 9 Series 9810 processor, at least in Asia. We think that the US version will run Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845, which is expected to enable a whole bunch of new features plus better battery life.
Samsung has its own version of Face ID
Even before Apple upped the ante with the iPhone X, Samsung had something to prove in the facial recognition department after hackers fooled the Galaxy S8’s iris scanner using a photo and contact lenses. The Korea Herald reports that Samsung has been working to improve its technology and will bring it to its budget phones in 2018 or 2019.
The fingerprint scanner is back (and on the back)
Regardless of whether Samsung’s answer to Face ID is finished in time for the Galaxy S9, we pray that the company figures out a better solution for its fingerprint scanner. The early buzz suggested that the new model would ditch its predecessor’s most cursed feature — the rear-mounted fingerprint scanner — in favor of one embedded in the display.
Dual cameras on the front and back
This one is up for debate. Early reports said that the Galaxy S9 would go full iPhone X, with two cams on the front but more recent chatter suggests maybe not. For now, the consensus seems to be dual rear cams — at least for the Galaxy S9 Plus — equipped with “3-stack layer image sensors” that can shoot more than 1,000 photos per second.
Killer battery life
Explosion issues aside, the Galaxy line is known for long battery life. The S8 and S8 Plus both lasted about 16 hours in our tests, and the Note 8 about an hour longer. One other benefit of stepping up to the Snapdragon 845 is better power efficiency — 30 percent better, according to Qualcomm. If true, this could push the Galaxy S9 beyond the vaunted 20-hour threshold.
The Galaxy S9 could have a headphone jack
The once-mundane 3.5mm headphone jack has become an increasingly rare, “vintage” feature that could make the Galaxy S9 that much more attractive to people who aren’t ready to ditch their collection of wired headphones. Apple walked away from the legacy port with its iPhone 7 and 7 Plus and hasn’t looked back, and the Google Pixel 2, Moto Z, Essential Phone and others have followed suit.
So, Finally wrap up the folder with the hope of early seeing the new generation and the most stylist smartphones of 2018 : Samsung Galaxy S9, And hoping again Samsung smash the base of smartphone series. Let’s wish to have your new Samsung Galaxy S9 , New feather of Galaxy series soon.
