Dual-Cam on the Cards for Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus; Tipped to Arrive Early Next Year

November 29, 2017, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Samsung is all revved up to introduce its next flagship device from the Galaxy S series to put an end to the iPhone X frenzy. As a result, the company is now likely to launch the device earlier than usual by pushing it to as early as January.

Sources now reveal that Galaxy S9 will be likely launched at CES 2018, which is way ahead of Samsung’s usual launch schedule. Samsung usually pulls outs its flagship at MWC in February, with the exception being the launch of Galaxy S8 that took place post MWC. However, it appears that the company is now rushing to launch its next flagship ahead to bring back the attention to Samsung device from iPhone.

A lot of rumors have already been circulating around, revealing what the next big Galaxy would be packing. Most of them point towards a bigger this year for Galaxy S9, with some even suggesting a screen-to-body ration of close to 90% for Galaxy S9. To recall, Samsung Galaxy S8 had a screen-to-body ratio of 84%. The hike in the ratio would mean that Samsung will succeed in squeezing out the bottom bezels like it had done with the side bezels.

It has also been said that Samsung will introduce a better display this year, with curves spreading out to both top and bottom parts apart from the sides. This however doesn’t echo what was revealed by other rumors, which suggest for minimal design change this year with Galaxy S9.

Apart from that, Samsung is also poised to introduce dual-cam in the Galaxy S series this year, something which it had already tried in the Galaxy Note series. But it also appears that the dual-cam feature will be limited to the Plus edition of the device that would come with 6.2-inch screen.

Other details are yet to be out, but we can safely assume that the Galaxy S9 would feature Snapdragon 845 SoC, which is yet to be unveiled although. Samsung won’t be the sole device to feature the new processor, as LG’s upcoming G7 flagship is also said to be featuring the same. The device is also expected to be unveiled alongside Samsung Galaxy S9 at CES next year.
