VentureBeat reported that Samsung is going to preview their new smartphone earlier than ever. The high-tech company will preview the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ at the CES 2018 Innovation Awards, in January.
The Verge reported that the S9 and S9+ will have more iterative features than the redesign of the S8 and S8+ introduced in 2017. Evan Blass of VentureBeat stated that the new smartphones will have upgraded processors such as Qualcomm’s newly added Snapdragon 845, which will make the phone faster.
However, the most significant alteration will be the fingerprint sensor, which will once again be relocated under the camera. The sensor will not be placed next to the lens such as on the Note 8, S8, and S8+, which Blass said was problematic to some.
Both the S9 and S9+ should both have the newer AKG stereo speakers. The headphone jack will also be on the two phones for an additional year.
Additionally, the S9+ will have a few more advanced features than the S9. The larger smartphone will have 6GB of RAM. There will be a rear camera on the S9+ that will be similar to the Note 8.
The Verge concluded that they are rumored to be releasing a new edition of its DeX Doc that will place the high-tech object flat, which will allow it to be used as a literal touchpad or keyboard. The object will be well-suited with earlier devices that were released by the Asian high-tech giant, which Samsung will be previewing early this year.
Digital Trends reported that the South Korean company sold more mobile phones than any other high-tech company in 2012. Gartner reported that phones manufactured by the company accounted for 22 percent of the smartphone market.
Android made up 70 percent of the worldwide mobile phone market in 2012. IDC research reported that the smartphone company constructed 42 percent of all Android phones during the year.
Digital Trends reported that Samsung’s recent success was attributed to their Galaxy brand. The Galaxy consists of more than 50 individual devices. Samsung has reached every country, carrier, and all price points with its various tablets and smartphones.
Samsung originally entered the smartphone market when the company released the i7599, or the original Galaxy, in June 2009. The HTC Dream, or the T-Mobile G1, was the first Android smartphone released in 2008. The Motorola Droid landed slightly earlier.
Digital Trends reported in 2013 that the Galaxy S4 was predicted to outsell the iPhone. The Samsung Galaxy would then be declared to be on the Android phone throne.
BGR reported that Apple will release a successor to their iPhone X product that captures the attention of the global high-tech market. The iPhone X was the 10th-anniversary product of the technology giant’s original android phone’s production.
However, BGR reported that the newer android smart phone’s narrower space is not more than the iPhone 8+. Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ will be released to the public before the summer, which is when Apple will release their newer iPhones. However, Samsung is going to preview their new smartphone in early 2018.
