Samsung to unveil Galaxy S9 at MWC, not CES

Samsung is expected to unveil its next flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S9, next month in time for the Mobile World Congress. Additionally, the S9 will likely use a fingerprint sensor placed lower than the camera sensor similar to the recently unveiled Galaxy A8.

The spec also mentions Super Slow-mo without giving additional format details. The leak shows that the Samsung Galaxy S9 camera will have an incredibly large f/1.5 aperture backed with OIS, but it can also switch to f/2.4 in ideal lighting conditions for a deeper depth of field.

The news report about the Samsung Galaxy X reveals a few general facts regarding the device's display, but nothing about any other technical specs. Other features listed on the box include wireless charging and an IP68 water and dust resistant rating.

The company's smartphone supremo, DJ Koh, confirmed the launch at CES Koh didn't offer a specific date, but MWC is the only obvious candidate.

Interestingly, as Android Headlines reported, the f/1.5 lens, which in itself is the highest the smartphone segment has seen so far is now available on only another handset which again happens to be another of Samsung's unique offering, the W2018 flip phone.

One rumor that's been doing the rounds is that the S9's camera will feature a variable aperture, which this leak seems to confirm, but otherwise it'll be the same "dual pixel" 12MP shooter with optical image stabilization found on the S8. He is also said to have highlighted that the Bixby virtual assistant will be available across all Samsung devices by 2020. Here is everything we know about the next big thing from Samsung. Manufacturers like HTC, Huawei, Apple and Sony have stereo speakers on their flagship smartphones which are clearly better than one loudspeaker. Until Apple finds a way to hide all of the front-facing speakers, cameras, and detectors under the display, the elite will probably be discovered on most of the iPhones going ahead it is also a neat advertising trick which produces the iPhone X familiar out of a bunch of all-screen mobiles. That should make for a longish 18.5:9 aspect ratio.

The leak comes from Reddit, where a user by the name of minhvn shared an image of the box to the Android community.
