The Samsung Galaxy S9 isn’t going to be launched until MWC 2018 in Barcelona, Spain. But it looks like we won’t have to wait more than a month to know more about the smartphone.
A photo of its supposed retail box showed up online, revealing the specs of Samsung’s next Galaxy. And while the source may not be someone who’s a trusted source of technology-related leaks, the details in the picture corroborate previous rumors. Look.
If true, then the Samsung Galaxy S9 will have variable aperture for its Dual Pixel 12-megapixel camera with optical-image stabilization and support for slo-mo videos. It can switch between f/1.5 — the lowest ever on a smartphone, mind you — and f/2.4, depending on how much light is available. This is the same setup used by the China-exclusive, very expensive Samsung W2018.

You’ll also supposedly see stereo speakers tuned by AKG — complemented by AKG-tuned earphones — this time around.
The rest is something you have seen in the Samsung Galaxy S8, one of last year’s best smartphones. There’s a 5.8-inch Quad HD+ screen; an 8-megapixel front camera; an iris scanner; IP68 water- and dust-resistance rating; 4GB of RAM; and 64GB of internal storage. You can charge the Galaxy S9 wirelessly, too, but you will have to buy a charging pad.
Let’s see if this leak isn’t a made-up one end-February, shall we?
