Samsung is preparing for the launch of its next-generation smartphone line-up, the Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus smartphones. Rumors and speculations have revealed significant details about the handset. If these predictions are believed to be accurate, then the South-Korean technology giant plans on introducing the handset at the official CES event scheduled to take place in Las Vegas next month. According to a report by Gadgets 360, the smartphone has now been spotted on Geekbench. Along with the Geekbench listing, all the major specifications of the handset have consequently been revealed as well.
The handset (Galaxy S9), which carries the model number SM-G965U1 – can be seen as giving an impressive single-core score of 2422 and a multi-core score of about 8351. The Galaxy S9 Plus, on the other hand, can be seen sporting a performance which is roughly twenty-five percent better than its predecessors, i.e. Galaxy S8 Plus. The device can be seen carrying a single-core score of about 1929 and a multi-core score of about 6084. By the Geekbench listing, the smartphone is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 system-on-chip. On the storage front, the device offers 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. The invention will apparently run on the latest Android 8.0 operating system directly out of the box.
Another leak regarding the same device states that the Galaxy S9 line-up will carry a dual rear camera setup. It isn’t sure whether both, Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus will sport a dual rear camera setup. There is a high possibility that only the high-end variant will wear a dual rear camera setup. Samsung also plans on integrating the smartphone with an iris scanning option or a facial recognition software, just like the kind that appeared in Apple’s iPhone X smartphone.
