The Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+, the upcoming flagship duo from the South Korean manufacturer has been making headlines in the internet for quiet a bit. Even though it was expected that the S9 duo will be revealed at CES in Las Vegas, it was confirmed to be revealed at MWC 2018 at the end of February, by Samsung Mobile President DJ Koh.
A lot of information about the specifications and features of both devices has already been leaked, and now the retail box of the Samsung S9 has surfaced on chinese social networking website Weibo. The leaked retail box throws light into the key specs of S9.
The first thing to be noted from the leaked retail box is the upgraded camera setup, which is given as “Super speed Dual Pixel 12MP OIS f1.5/f2.5” primary camera. The S9 comes with variable aperture, which is suggested, will bring great improvement in low light photography. Reports suggests that the optical sensors used in the S9 will be much more effective than the Sony’s flagship sensor in capturing light. The rear camera also features super slow motion video recording. There is an 8MP front camera with Auto Focus for capturing selfies.
The display flaunts a 5.8 inch Quad HD+ Super AMOLED Infinity display with 18:9 aspect ratio and rounded corners. The height of the display indicates that the S9 will have very thin bezels. It will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor in its global variants, whereas the Indian variant will be featuring an Exynos 9810 processor. It will be coupled along with 4GB of RAM and 64GB internal storage.
Similar to its predecessor, the S9 also comes with IP68 water and dust resistant capabilities. Another notable feature is the stereo speakers on board the Samsung Galaxy S9, which is tuned by premium speaker manufacturer AKG. The in box earphone available with the S9 is also AKG tuned, which ensures superior audio quality to the users.
The S9 also comes with Wireless charging and an Iris scanner. Even though the leaked retail box looks quiet real, there is no official confirmation yet about the specificaions of the Samsung Galaxy S9 from the manufacturer. But we’re now pretty sure how the phone would look, as it’s been leaked several times now.
