Thanks to a series of unfortunate corporate leaks, there will be very few (if any) surprises when Samsung finally unveils their new flagship product at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona on February 25.

The first big secret exploded last December, when various media outlets got their hands on final renders that depicted the phone’s exterior from every angle.

Since then we’ve been told that the new phone – which is tipped to be the company’s biggest release of the year – is heavily based on the company’s previous hit, the Galaxy S8.

The new Galaxy’s screen-to-body ratio is a tad higher than the iPhone X, with both the top and bottom bezels of the S9 fractionally thinner than those of its predecessor.

The camera and fingerprint reader have been repositioned to a central location on the back of the phone, and at a reasonable distance under the camera, which is good news since there will be less chance you accidentally put your dirty paws on the lens.

Samsung insists on retaining the 3.5mm headphone jack in the design; a microSD slot is also included in the device along with the ever-controversial physical Bixby button.

In mid January, a Redditor got hold of a retailers box and leaked the complete set of specs.

Samsung’s Galaxy S9 will reportedly include stereo speakers and 3D emoji

  Samsung’s Galaxy S9 will reportedly include stereo speakers and 3D emoji Samsung’s Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus devices will be the first to feature 3D emoji and stereo speakers, according to Korean publication ETNews.ETNews reports that Samsung’s 3D emoji are more advanced than Apple’s Animoji on the iPhone X, but are similar in terms of resembling a 3D character that tracks the facial movements of the user and mimics them. The 3D emoji reportedly include animal characters that can be shared with friends. The news was spotted by Android Authority.

Everything we know about the Samsung Galaxy S 9 and S 9 +. Our Picks. Popular. Both leaks show devices with a reworked fingerprint scanner. It still has the oblong shape from the S8 but now sits under the camera module.

  • 5.8-inch ‘QuadHD+’ (2960 x 1440), sAMOLED display
  • Samsung warns display is 5.6-inches allowing for rounded corners
  • Single lens 12MP main camera with variable F1.5 – F2.4 aperture, OIS
  • “Super Slo-mo” mode (expect regional variation here)
  • 8MP auto focus front facing selfie camera
  • Stereo speakers tuned by AKG
  • IP68 dust and water resistance (unchanged)
  • Iris scanner (expect second gen, but not Face ID 3D mapping)
  • 64GB of native storage, 4GB RAM (unchanged)
  • Wireless charging (expect full 15W fast charging)
  • AKG bundled earphones (presumably version 2.0)

At that point, the only two major pieces missing from the puzzle were the battery size and the release date, and yeah, just days later, those were also shared through yet another leak.

This is either a premeditated and unorthodox marketing campaign or a telltale sign that Samsung’s corporate security just sucks.

Slashleaks obtained certification forms from Anatel – Brazil’s national telecommunications agency – which revealed that both the upcoming Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus will have 3000 mAh and 3500 mAh battery capacities, the same batteries its Galaxy line has sported since 2016.

Samsung filing hints that smart glasses might still be coming

  Samsung filing hints that smart glasses might still be coming For years, there have been rumors that Samsung might be making smart glasses. The first hint of Samsung developing some sort of Google Glass-style wearable was back in 2013, with a design patent for a pair of “sports glasses.” Then, in 2014, a report from the Korea Times cited unnamed Samsung officials who said Samsung was indeed making its version of Google Glass, tentatively called Galaxy Glass. The glasses never surfaced, and talk about such a product slowed to a halt. This new trademark application is the first indication since 2014 that Samsung is still interested in and pursuing its own brand of smart glasses.

And if two leaks weren’t enough of a headache, there was yet another one this past week!

Over the weekend, Orange Romania accidentally published the product page for the Galaxy S9. It was pulled back within a few hours, but thanks to web caching we could get a glimpse of the official specs and see it confirmed every bit of leaked info so far.

So, we actually know everything about the new phone weeks before it’s launch. Our highlights? Well, despite some calling Samsung’s insistence on keeping the 3.5mm headphone jack a nostalgic throwback, we think it’s actually one of their key differences over Apple.

Also, the 5.8-inch Quad HD OLED ‘Infinity Display’ and fast-aperture primary rear camera are sure to impress.

There are two huge disappointments, though. Everybody hated the darn Bixby button, so why keep it? Our second gripe is that they’ve been using the same battery since the Galaxy S7 – really, Samsung?
