There are no smoke without fire and informative information is gradually starting to appear on the possibilities of the flagship smartphoneSamsung Galaxy S9, which should be on sale in six months. This device will have to deal with competitors like iPhone x, the beginning of production is expected in the first quarter of 2018.
radical changes are not expected, since only this year Samsung Presented Infinity Display's curious screens, but innovations should be inside the hull, if you believe rumors and the history of past years.
Let's try to systematize these rumors and see what to expect from the future flagship of the leading manufacturer Android-smartphones.
It was possible to guess and so, but Information from the famous analyst Ming Chi Kuo almost excludes the possibility of mistaken. This is an important innovation, since there is still no double cameras in the license line of the Galaxy S smartphones. Samsung has already announced new camera sensors with 12 MP and 24 MP permissions that carry updated specifications. Sensitivity was improved with weak lighting, the new sensor uses the focus technology Dual Pixel for portrait shooting, as on Pixel 2 XL.
more perfect design
New camera sensors, which Samsung announced last week, possess one distinguishing feature - they are created from scratch and are more Thin compared to existing. Thus, Galaxy S9 can also be thinner, the double rear camera should not be outside the housing, which will match the design of the front of the device with the Infinity Display screen. It remains to find out where the fingerprint scanner is.
In-Cell Touch Screens on Galaxy S9 and S9 +
Samsung chose for the following year models in-cell Touch screens. Flexible screens technology OLED called Y-Octa integrates a touch layer in the panel itself, due to this it becomes thinner and the cost of production is reduced by 30%. Galaxy S8 received such a solution, while S8 + and Note 8 are satisfied with the usual additional touch layer over the panel, since Samsung suppliers have no power to ensure demand. Panels with a diagonal of 5.77 and 6.22 inches for Galaxy S9 and S9 + will receive the integration of the Touch layer Y-Octa, Samsung will produce them itself.
new Snapdragon 845 processors 7 nm and exynos 9810 8 nm
New Galaxy line S, new processors and a new technological process have already traditionally come out at the same time. Galaxy S9 should not deviate from this schedule. Despite the complexity with the process of 7 nm, which experience the Samsung and TSMC plants, next year, the SNAPDRAGON 845 processors should be applied in the US version of Galaxy S9, while the international version of the devices will work on Samsung Exynos 9810. Together with them will come a new era Performance and power consumption in mobile devices. Probably, at first Snapdragon 845 will be only in Galaxy S9, while the scale of its production will not rise to such a level to have enough and other manufacturers of smartphones.
Qualcomm company in summer has released a Snapdragon Neural Processing Engine software development kit, Samsung can follow its example With the processor for Exynos line. You can wait for an assistant-based translator BIXBY in real time, advanced recognition of objects and other advanced features.
The neural coprocessor will not sit idle. Existing mechanisms of facial recognition and scanning of the iris eye can be improved as Apple did. It uses three-dimensional face marking, the same can offer Galaxy S9 with front chambers of depth. It remains only to find the practical application of this technology on the smartphone.
Compact placement of components for saving space
Samsung can apply vertical location of printed circuit boards, Through what chips will be more closely located next to each other and the device can become more compact, or the functionality can expand. With thinner in-cell touch panels, smaller motherboards, a 7nm processor, more compact camera sensors, there could be more room for a bigger battery or something.
Air quality sensor
Samsung is not the first to use various barometers and UV sensors in its flagship smartphones, but a new mobile environmental sensor will suffice compact enough to fit into a large smartphone. He will be able to measure the size and number of harmful particles in the air, which is useful in megacities. A similar sensor is found in the Sony Xperia XZ Premium.
1000 fps camera
Samsung will introduce a sensor capable of recording 1000 fps. Sony installs three layers of these lenses, while Samsung installs two and adds a RAM module to avoid patent disputes. This will allow slow motion shooting at a level previously inaccessible.
