The Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ could be making an early appearance next year, according to VentureBeat. The flagships are scheduled to make their first appearance at the Consumer Electronics Show, which will begin on January 9 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
The Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ were unveiled later than previous editions but it appears that the company could be speeding things up for the S9 and S9+. VentureBeat reports that the two smartphones will be almost the same to the previous release. This means that those waiting for the big changes will probably have to wait until 2019.
The Galaxy S9 and S9+ are still months away from their release but rumors have been surfacing for weeks. One of the biggest rumors is that Samsung will be releasing a smaller Galaxy S9 Mini at some point. That same rumor surfaced for the S8 but that never happened. Another rumor has also mentioned that the fingerprint could be placed somewhere else this time and that the smartphones will not feature a fingerprint scanner under the screen. That feature is said to be coming for the Galaxy Note 9.
It appears that there will be differences between the regular and plus version this time. This year’s releases were pretty much the same but the S9 and S9+ will have a few differences. According to the person that was told the information, the S9+ will have more RAM and a dual rear camera. The internal storage remains the same.
Recent rumors have mentioned that production will start this year and that the release will happen sooner. Some rumors have even said the smartphone will be unveiled before MWC 2018.
Tech site BGR recently posted renders created by Ghostek, a phone accessory maker. The site mentions that the renders are based from information from the factory. The renders show a phone similar to the S8 on the front. There are a few differences on the back, with the phone now featuring two dual rear cameras and flash under them. The fingerprint scanner is located under those three things. The placement of the fingerprint scanner on the S8 was something that a lot of users didn’t like and it appears that the company will be changing that for its next release.
