Samsung confirmed earlier this week that it would be unveiling its next flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S9, at Mobile World Congress which happens at the end of next month. During Samsung's press conference, better known as Galaxy Unpacked, Samsung will be officially announcing the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+, the follow up to last year's Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+. There isn't a lot known about either version of the new phone yet but Samsung has made one thing very clear – it's focusing on the camera with this device, as evidenced by its invitation that went out to members of the press yesterday with a message that states "The camera. Reimagined."
This doesn't give much detail, but this taken into account alongside recent rumors suggests that Samsung is looking to outfit the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ with new imaging sensors and camera software features. Though it's not immediately clear what the exact frames per second will be, a rumor pegs the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ as having a super slow-mo video capture feature. There are actually multiple rumors surrounding this with one suggesting that it will be at 1,000 frames per second, while another one that's tied to the landing page for new ISOCELL sensors on the Samsung Semidconductor website suggests it will be at 480 frames per second.
There's also the recently leaked image of what appears to be the outside sleeve of the Galaxy S9 packaging which does mention a super slow-mo video capture option, so it would certainly appear that Samsung plans to incorporate this into both versions of the upcoming device. Naturally, as the first major flagships of the year Samsung's upcoming devices will come powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor, at least for the U.S. versions of the phone as the international models will no doubt come powered by the latest Exynos CPU from Samsung. Samsung has also recently been rumored to have focused on better gaming performance while on the go with this new device, so those that enjoy mobile gaming will surely have a good experience with the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+. Are you excited for the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+?
