By now, we all know that the Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ flagship smartphones will be announced on February 25 at the MWC 2018 show floor. Being the next-generation flagship models, these smartphones will definitely come with more improvements than their predecessors in terms of both hardware and software. A plethora of rumors and leaks making the rounds on the internet have also tipped at these improvements we can see on the upcoming Samsung flagships.
Earlier, there were speculations that the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ will make use of 3000mAh and 3500mAh batteries respectively those are the same as the ones we saw on the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+. Of course, this is definitely not an improvement. Now, we have got more evidence confirming the same as the replacement battery listings for these smartphones were spotted online.
Battery capacities are out
According to a tweet by the tipster Roland Quandt, the Galaxy S9 will use a 3000mAh battery (11.55Wh) and the Galaxy S9+ will use a 3500mAh battery (13.48Wh). The listing also shows the images of the batteries of both the smartphones as well.
Given that the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ will go on sale in mid-March, it looks like the company does not have enough time to prepare the retailers, stores and carriers with enough parts and accessories related to these smartphones in such a short time frame. So, it looks like these will be the final battery capacities of these upcoming flagships.
Single camera module of Galaxy S9
Another tweet by the same tipster Roland Quandt shows the arrangement of the single main camera module of the Galaxy S9 along with that of the fingerprint sensor. The fingerprint sensor appears to have a different shape as it is relatively wider. Going by the existing speculations, the camera on the Galaxy S9 should be a 12MP sensor though it can shoot slo-mo videos from 480fps to 1080fps.
From the previous renders and CAD schematics, it is believed that the Galaxy S9+ will arrive with a dual camera setup at its rear similar to what we saw on the Galaxy Note 8 last year. However, the current component leak shows only the alleged camera module of the S9 and not that of the S9+.
