Samsung is all geared for this year’s S-series flagship smartphones. The two smartphones, the S9 and the S9 Plus have been the subject of multiple leaks and specifications. So inevitably, an image of a Galaxy S9 alleged retail box surfaced online, revealing the smartphone’s specs.
According to the retail box, the Galaxy S9 will sport a 5.8-inch curved infinity display. From the previous leaks, we know it will have the same 18:5:9 aspect ratio. It also reveals that the device will feature a “Super Speed” 12 MP Dual Pixel camera with OIS( Optical Image Stabilisation). It will likely be the new 1.28 micrometer 12 MP ISOCELL Fast 2L9 sensor with Dual Pixel Technology that the company launched three months ago. It supports a variable aperture, which offers f/1.5 for low-light shots and f/2.4 for daylight. The box mentions the S9 will have slow-motion features, which aligns with the rumors that the device will support 1000 fps slow-motion capabilities.
The Galaxy S9 will be powered by Samsung’s latest Exynos 9810 chip in the Chinese market. Still, like its predecessor, the company will launch an international variant powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 Soc. It will be coupled with 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of internal storage. Other features include an iris scanner, wireless charging, and IP68-rated water and dust protection. It will also come with Stereo Speakers tuned by AKG, and a pair of headphones tuned by AKG will be shipped with the device.
Though it’s common to leak retail boxes before a smartphone launch, it’s still unclear whether the image of the retail box is genuine. The box, though, bears similarities with retail boxes of the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy Note 8. From the comparisons, it looks like the image is authentic. Samsung has confirmed the device will be unveiled at MWC( Mobile World Congress) 2018 in Barcelona next month.
