Samsung's Galaxy Unpacked event will be available to live stream online through Samsung's official Galaxy S9 website, in addition to its YouTube channel. Once the embed code is available, we'll be adding into this post, so Android owners can watch Samsung's Galaxy S9 and S9+ announcement.
The Galaxy S9 'Has A Lot To Say'
"If a picture is worth a thousand words, the latest member of the Galaxy family has a lot to say," said Samsung.
"Samsung Electronics will showcase the next generation of Galaxy devices that reimagines the camera and redefines the way you share your moments."
Samsung Galaxy S9: What To Expect
In terms of design, the Galaxy S9 and S9+ will look similar to its predecessors, the S8 and S8+, so don't expect any significant changes.
The Galaxy S9+ is also rumored to feature a dual-camera, which was first introduced with the Galaxy Note 8. The Korean company is hyping up the device's new camera suggesting it will "redefine the way you share your moments."
Qualcomm's Snapdragon 845 Chipset Improves Battery Life By 30 Percent
For hardware, both phones are expected to offer 64 GB of internal storage, 5 GB of RAM, a headphone jack, and wireless charging. Samsung's next flagship handsets will have the same batteries, so the S9 comes with a 3,000 mAh battery, while the S9+ comes with a 3,500 mAh battery. The Galaxy S9 is also expected to have Qualcomm's Snapdragon 845 chipset, improving battery life by at least 30 percent, compared to the Snapdragon 835 chipset in the S8 handsets.
Galaxy S8 owners weren't happy with Samsung when the company added the fingerprint sensor on the back of the device. However, Samsung listened to Android owners and put the fingerprint sensor beneath the camera lens.
