A recent invite, which was sent to media across the globe, revealed: “On February 25, Samsung Electronics will showcase the next generation of Galaxy devices that reimagines the camera and redefines the way you share your moments.”
And if these images turn out to be true it seems Samsung has every right to boast about what’s to come.
Spotted on Chinese website Weibo, the alleged leaked pictures appear to show three photographic features that could make the S9’s camera the market leader.
The first image shows a child on swing and in perfect focus, which clearly means the S9 will include a burst or fast shutter mode.
The second photo features a man jumping into a lake with the background appearing in monotone but the subject in full colour.
This suggests the possibility of a portrait mode, similar to Apple’s iPhone X, may feature on the new flagship.
Finally there’s photo number three which includes a cute kitten that’s partially in focus.
Rumours are rife that the larger S9+ will have a dual-lens camera on the on the rear of the phone which will offer users the chance to add DSLR-style depth of field.
This pro-style photographic feature has become hugely popular on may rival devices including the iPhone X, Pixel 2 and Samsung’s own Galaxy Note 8.
There’s no official word from Samsung if these latest leaks are real but the S9’s camera is certainly one to watch out for.
Luckily, with a launch date of February 25, there’s not too long until we find out full specs for the S9 and S9+.
Here’s what we think we know so far:
The S9 and S9+ will both feature a Super AMOLED display which will curve around the sides of the device.
It’s also thought that Samsung’s new phone will be powered by with Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 845 processor or Samsung’s own Eynox 9810.
These new chips will not only make the S9 much faster but also more efficient with battery life expected to be vastly improved.
Fast charging could be included with the S9 going from flat to 50 per cent in around 15 minutes.
Finally, it’s thought an updated design could see Samsung finally move the fingerprint scanner to a better position on the rear of the phone and improved facial/iris recognition will make it more accurate faster to unlock the device.
Like the Galaxy S8, also expect Samsung’s latest flagship to be water resistant, charge wirelessly and include the firm’s Bixby personal assistant.
