A Chinese tipster, citing a company insider, has claimed on social media site Weibo that the generic Galaxy S9 will be offered in two options - 4GB RAM+64GB storage and 4GB RAM+128GB storage. The report goes on to even predict a special edition limited S9+ release 6GB+512GB combination also in select markets.
Everyone was hoping that its next flagship phone would be hinted at during the big Samsung CES 2018 press conference, which is usually reserved for the company's TV and smart home announcements. If this be not enough, Samsung will offer the complete set at once with 512 GB ROM. The device will come in-display fingerprint sensors developed by Synaptics and improve on the Infinity Display with much thinner bezels.
Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus memory configurations leaked online. The practice so far followed by most companies is to peg one level of RAM with a corresponding storage point. Almost as if Samsung got wise to the idea that some users were upgrading in the spring, while others upgraded in the fall. Both should prove to be faster and, importantly, could introduce Mobile HDR Premium video capture. The image is in line with previous leaks that suggested similar design language of the Galaxy S9 duo. The first was the Note 7 (RIP), but the S8, S8 Plus and Note 8 all have it, as does the LG G6, LG V30, Sony Xperia XZ Premium, and Sony Xperia XZ1. It is slated to hit stores in mid-March. These are still speculations though so take them with a pinch of salt.
As said before, Samsung Galaxy S9 series will be coming in two variants - one a generic 5.8-inch Galaxy S9 (codename: Star 1; model number: SM-G960) and the 6.2-inch S9 Plus (codename: Star 2; model number: SM-G965).
There's a lot to get excited about when it comes to the Samsung Galaxy S9, but there are a lot of unknowns, too.
