The South Korean Mobile manufacturer is one of the few mobile hardware companies known to push the technological envelope with every new device coming out of its factory. The Samsung galaxy s9 will push the envelope in mobile consumer hardware.
The Samsung galaxy S9 is being made at a time where mobile computing technology is going through a makeover. Companies are making discoveries every day, and it’s quite possible the Samsung galaxy s9 will take advantage of some of these new technologies. Here’s what you have to look forward to.
For people looking for fast network capabilities, rumors have it that the Samsung galaxy s9 will be powered by a 1 Gbps LTE Cat16 wireless chip allowing the S9 to take advantage of fast LTE networks, and the upcoming 5G networks. Standard connectivity options such as Wi-Fi cards and Bluetooth adapters are built on the Samsung Galaxy S9’s board.
For the display, we expect the standard 5.8-inch bezel-free, strengthened with a gorilla glass 4. Such a screen will have a resolution of 4096 by 2160, making it the best screen for 4K video display. What’s even amazing is the same gorilla glass will go on the back of the Samsung galaxy s9. That makes the phone scratch resistant straight out of the factory. Additionally, the screen will be slightly curved around the edges increasing the viewing angle.It Is Rumored Water Will Bounce Off The Samsung galaxy S9.
What’s interesting is Samsung signing deal Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL). ORNL is behind some groundbreaking innovation that can be applied to electronic displays. ORNL developed a transparent coating resistant to dust and dirt. On top of that, the coating deflects light away from the screen and leaves no room for fingerprint smudges.
If Samsung includes this technology in the Samsung galaxy s9, the phone will take water resistance to new depths. According to ORNL, for a surface to achieve water resistance, it must have a contact angle more than 150 degrees.
The coating developed by the company gives a surface a contact angle in excess of 155 degrees, meaning water and dust bounce off the surface. Whichever glass technology the galaxy s9 will use.
NFC (Near Field Communication)
The most amazing feature of this Smartphone is that it has the NFC which is actually the exceptional feature of this Smartphone. NFC is the Near Field Communication and in this Smartphone, the purpose of NFC is to enable the short-range communications between the devices which are compatible with Samsung Galaxy S9 and Samsung Galaxy S9 Edge. This NFC will require one transmitting device and another device that will receive the signals from the transmitting device.
The Samsung Galaxy S9 will surely enjoy a better an improved artificial intelligence. Samsung acquired an artificial intelligence startup recently, and it is rumored engineers are working around the clock to bring something to rival the Amazon’s EcoDot. Viv, the artificial intelligence company Samsung bought, is a small company making leaps and bounds in artificial intelligence.
It will be exciting to see which artificial intelligence does it best because Google bundles their own artificial intelligence in recent Android releases. Samsung has to compete Google’s Smartphones. So that’s why Samsung insert AI platform to win users over.
Samsung Galaxy S9 Concept
Samsung may launch Flexible Design and Foldable device next year: A thrilling Samsung promise
A metallic unibody with smooth edges will protect the Samsung’s inner mechanisms from water and other debris. The body will also be built to improve grip compared to other Samsung phones, and it is rumored Samsung might make Galaxy S9 foldable. The ability to fold and bend your screen might sound ultra-futuristic but the Samsung Company have promised to make this real.
That means according to the concept of the Samsung Galaxy S9 will bend and twist however you want it to, without breaking any components. That’s welcome news for people who routinely sit on their phones. You will even not get worried about its size as it will fit in your pocket no matter the size.
A metallic unibody with smooth edges will protect the Samsung’s inner mechanisms from water and other debris. The body will also be built to improve grip compared to other Samsung phones.
The unibody, together with the glass technology, gives the Samsung galaxy S9 an entire hour underwater without shorting out. However, it is rumored the phone cannot go deeper than 20 meters.
Samsung Galaxy S9 Specs
Every Samsung user expects a lot from upcoming Samsung galaxy s9. We are hearing a number of rumors about Galaxy s9. But Samsung has not announced any information officially till now.There are few Samsung Galaxy S9 Specifications are detailed below.

Samsung Galaxy S9 Features
The Galaxy S9 dual cameras will let you record every moment with outstanding clarity. The rear camera will handle up to 21 megapixels (although some rumors have the camera at 31 megapixels), while the front-facing camera will capture images with its 13-megapixel lens.
The cameras also enjoy support from Samsung’s imaging software to recognize faces and smiles. Samsung will launch different quality and feature in Galaxy s9’s Camera. Also, each of the cameras come equipped with a dedicated flash-diode allowing you to take stunning images in the darkest of places.
The Samsung Galaxy s9 dual cameras will allow users to video chat or conference, and it is rumored that users can unlock their Samsung galaxy s9 by looking into one of the cameras. Samsung’s facial recognition technology should suffice to make such a feature possible.
4K Video Capability
First up, you can expect Samsung to cram a 4K video in the Samsung galaxy s9. Owners of the Samsung Galaxy S9 will be able to record and play 4K videos on their Samsung device. 4K videos are the latest in video rendering technology. The name 4K comes from the technological feat of being able to display 4k pixels horizontally, giving you the best video quality on the planet. This is a neat little feature, but what would be neater is Samsung making the phone 3D ready. That would make the Samsung galaxy s9 the best mobile as well as a well-rounded entertainment hub.
The 4K video capability will be complemented by a large display screen capable of clearly displaying 4K videos galaxy S9. The biggest challenge for Samsung is not the screen, though; it is implementing a hardware architecture that will not choke under a load of 4K videos.
Everything from the motherboard to the processor needs to work hand in hand to display 4K videos. That means the battery will face a stern test, and the Samsung galaxy s9 might have a bigger footprint compared to other Galaxy offerings.
All these doodads wouldn’t mean much without a capable battery behind the scene. The Samsung galaxy s9 will run a powerhouse of a battery. The expected 5, 000mAH gives the S9 approximately 1, 000 hours of standby time, 47 hours of talk time, 125 hours of audio playing, 11 hours of video play and 11 hours of continuous web browsing.
There are very few phones out there equipped with a 5, 000mAH battery, but the few that have such batteries give out such numbers.
As noted earlier, the hardware required to make the Samsung galaxy s9 features are capable of the listed above demands a lot of juice. Anything short of a 5, 000mAH battery won’t cut it here. In fact, there is few Samsung galaxy s9 rumors in which it might go with a 6, 500mAH to make sure nothing is underpowered.
Everyone is quite confident Samsung will pull this off, what people are asking is, will the battery on the S9 spontaneously combust like it did on the S8? All likelihood points to the fact that Samsung has worked out the issue.
RAM and Processor
It’s pretty clear the Samsung galaxy s9 is designed to be a powerhouse. To complete the image, Samsung is expected to cram a Qualcomm Snapdragon 830 processor. If you are familiar with mobile processors, you might know the predecessor of the Snapdragon 830, the Snapdragon 810, was a bit of a letdown. Qualcomm heard the boos and made up for everything with the 830.
It’s based on a 10nm chip, making it the first processor to use that architecture. Qualcomm’s homegrown Kyro cores on Snapdragon 830 will drive performance up while lowering power drain. The processor can support up to 8GB of RAM in Samsung galaxy s9.
The processor will be paired with an Adreno 540 GPU, essentially turning the Samsung galaxy s9 into the mainframe of smartphones. The CPU and GPU combo will let the S9 run the most demanding apps and games without breaking a sweat because of the ample 6GB of RAM at its disposal.
We expect at least 128GBs of internal storage on the Samsung galaxy s9, with the option of add more capacity via a MicroSD. However, the internal memory should be enough for most people, unless you plan on carrying tons of videos on the Samsung galaxy s9. However, the Galaxy S9’s board supports a maximum of 256GB, so you cannot carry your entire video collection on it.
All that hardware will be managed by Android 8.0 which is yet to be released or named. If the current Android operating system, Nougat, is anything to go by, then Android 8.0 will be pretty amazing. Nougat supports multitasking meaning you can run many apps side by side.
A fingerprint scanner is definitely a must on the Samsung Galaxy S9. However, as mentioned earlier, there’s a very high chance that the device cameras will be capable of more than just taking pictures. We expect an iris scanner on the Samsung galaxy s9 making it even more secure. You can look away important files in your file and use your eyes to access them.
It’s no doubt that the Samsung galaxy s9 will not be vulnerable to the Dirty Cow attack that’s thought to affect all versions of Android phones. Dirty Cow is the name given to a recently discovered flaw that affects Android and Linux systems. The Dirty Cow vulnerability allows users to easily root a device with a few lines of code.
That’s not the biggest concern, though. A malicious person can easily hide the Dirty Cow in an app and use it to snoop around devices.
