Samsung has finally confirmed that its latest flagship smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ will be launched at Mobile World Congress 2018 next month. The event will be held at Barcelona. The devices are expected to have the largest aperture lens seen on a smartphone. There are many rumors going on about this device so lets find out.

Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ Camera

Samsung Galaxy S9 will be using single camera setup on both sides. The rear camera might have 12 MP sensor with f/1.5 aperture and while the front camera might feature an 8 MP sensor. The aperture of front camera has not been leaked yet. The rear camera might have a variable aperture of f/1.5/ to f/2.4, this means Galaxy S9 will be able to adjust aperture as in a DSLR camera.

The Samsung Galaxy S9+ is expected to have dual rear cameras with specs similar to Galaxy S9. Both the device will have Iris scanner. The Iris scanner of Galaxy S9+ will be a standalone sensor while that of S9 will be integrated with the front camera.

Samsung Galaxt S9 Y-Octa display technology

Samsung will be using the new Y-Octa display technology on the upcoming flagship phones. The Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+  is expected to sport a 5.77-inch display and a  6.22-inch display respectively, Both with the new flexible Y-Octa OLED technology.

One good news is that both these devices will run Android Oreo out of the box. The devices may have up-to 6GB RAM. Samsung usually uses Qualcomm Snapdragon for Korean and U.S.A markets, while Exynos is used for remaining ones. A similar move is expected this time too.

One key innovation is that the motherboard will be stacked like in iPhone X. This will give Samsung more space to add bigger battery, advanced chips etc.

What do you think about the camera aperture? Will it overpower iPhone X?
