Today DealNTech.com has spotted the Galaxy S9 and the Galaxy S9+’s model numbers in the database of the Chinese 3C certification website. The database shows three models of the Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ carrying the model numbers SM-G9600/DS, SM-G9608/DS and SM-G9650/DS. The device with model number SM-G9600 is the Chinese version (‘0’ is for China) and SM-G9608 is the Taiwan version (‘8’ is for Taiwan) of the smaller (5.8-inch) Galaxy S9 whereas the SM-G9650 is the Chinese version of the larger (6.2-inch) Galaxy S9+. All three models appear in the database with the DS tag (Dual SIM) which indicates that they are dual SIM devices. This confirms that both the Galaxy S9 and the S9+ will feature Dual-SIM support.
The Galaxy devices are manufactured in Vietnam, China, and Korea. The model number of Galaxy S9 will start with SM-G960 whereas the S9+ will carry SM-G965. For example, SM-G960U, SM-G960U1, SM-G965U, or SM-G965U1 are the model numbers in the United States. Both the phones will come with different processors depending on the market. In the US, Canada, and China markets all models will be powered by the Snapdragon 845 while all other markets will get the company’s Exynos 9810 chipset.
The 3C listing also shows all the three models support for fast charging at 9V/1.67A (15W) and standard charging at 5V/2A. Unfortunately, nothing more can be confirmed about the Galaxy S9 models from 3C certification. However, we’re hopeful that detailed specs will be revealed when the models pass through TENAA.
The highly anticipated Galaxy S9 along with the Galaxy S9+ is likely to be unveiled at MWC 2018 on 26th February 2018 and will go sale from March 1.
