Galaxy S9 Retail Box

The Samsung Galaxy S9/S9+ will be announced next month at MWC 2018. Ahead of its launch, a picture of the Galaxy S9 retail box has been leaked and it reveals a couple of interesting features that are all new for the Galaxy flagship series.

From what we know so far, the Galaxy S9 will come with a single camera while the larger Galaxy S9+ will be fitted with a dual-camera setup similar to the Galaxy Note8. From the specs shown below are true, the Galaxy S9 will feature a Super Speed Dual Pixel 12MP camera with OIS that comes with a variable aperture of f/1.5 and f/2.4. This makes it the fastest lens on a smartphone and it’s the same camera that’s found on Samsung’s flagship flip-phone. The front camera is listed with an 8MP Auto Focus unit, which is similar to its current Galaxy S8/S8+ model.

The spec also mentions Super Slow-mo without giving additional format details. The Galaxy S9 was rumoured to come with 1000fps slow-mo like the Xperia flagships and it’s interesting to note that the new Exynos 9810 chip is capable of 4K resolution slow-mos at 120fps.

An interesting surprise is its stereo speakers that are tuned by AKG. Manufacturers like HTC, Huawei, Apple and Sony have stereo speakers on their flagship smartphones which are clearly better than one loudspeaker. It is likely Samsung will go with an earpiece + down-firing speaker combo, similar to HTC’s Boom Sound HiFi-Edition speakers.

As expected, the smaller S9 gets a 5.8″ QuadHD+ Super AMOLED display and it will get 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. Word has it that Samsung will be bumping up the specs of the bigger Galaxy S9+ with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage for a clearer differentiation.

We can’t 100% verify if this leaked image is true but it does look legit. With the Galaxy S9/S9+ global launch happening next month, both models could be hitting Malaysia as early as March 2018. What do you think of this new discovery? Let us know in the comments below.

Dual pixel as in pixel 2, means it can do bokeh as well?


    You got it wrong. They have been using dual pixel autofocus since the s7. Meaning, 100% of the pixels are used to focus on the subject.

    A normal iPhone X or iPhone 8 can only focus at 5 or 6 points that is why the autofocus on the iPhone is slow.


U all why doing like this, better do something for a educational systems, but u still doing a smartphone with additional version n extra version all that, do u hv brain or not? Pls stop, n better go n do a extra version or new version or anything for an educational systems! Irritating people!!!

    Dont talk cock pls. Own a premium phone but complain about Samsung releasing premiums.

    Just keluar from cave ka? Got so many other brands but dunno about their existence?

    If you want educational, go buy a book!


I think the super slow mo… sony already has it. Is jz that their ad is not gd enough


Super slow Mo.. Wow. It’s a new 2018 technology, Samsung is the best.


    It is 2017 technology .. Xperia had it first, you don’y know la?


      what is xperia?


Samsung…..finally stereo speakers!!..punya la susah nak tunggu ni..

What Samseng really needs is faster firmware updates la, and truer to stock Android. Not, like almost all other flagships, firmware update only come when the next Android iteration came out. Always 1 version outdated.

Btw, those looking for Pixel 2 camera portrait mode (Bokeh) can now use Pixel 2 camera on S7, S8 & Note 8. It works most of the time. Check out previous SoyaCincau post.


Into the mid of 2018, it will be the two horse race between samsung and huawei. Im xperia imx400 user, the slow motion camera are useless, a better lowlight ois rear camera are much more useful.


    Nah.. the reputation of Huawei in general is still a cheap China OEM. Most consumers can’t still accept the fact that Huawei is a decent brand.

    So the race is still between Apple and Samsung.


Nice upgrade


same old, same old…..
wats new?
Sammy ran out of ideas to have new designs.
How to compete with X?


    Apple is way behind. They only followed the bezel-less display from Samsung. Only now that they have amoled display and still manufactured by Samsung.

    Too bad Apple users are behind the best camera technology. Iphone X camera is still not good in lowlight unlike Samsung , htc or Huawei.


      Exactly, the X doesn’t have the virtual Home button like Galaxy has even though both are “full screen”
