The countdown is on to Samsung's flagship Galaxy S9 series. We're likely to see the duo of phones, the Galaxy S9 and the Galaxy S9+, revealed next month at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, and a lot of people are excited to see what Samsung has in store. There is no dearth of leaks and rumors surrounding the Galaxy S9, and now we have the latest word from the grapevine: the RAM and storage options for the flagship.
According to the new leak, we will see the Galaxy S9 come with 4GB of RAM and two options for storage; a 64GB option and a larger 128GB one. If that sounds a little conservative for you considering that it is 2018 already, worry not. Samsung is saving the more impressive specifications for the Galaxy S9+, which will come with 6GB of RAM and four different options for storage; 64GB, 128GB, 256GB and a whopping 512GB.
While 4GB RAM does sound a little on the light side for 2018, it's clear that Samsung is cleverly segmenting the market here and making sure there's an option for those who are happy at 4GB with a relatively modest device, while those who want to go all out can opt for the much more expensive and better-equipped Galaxy S9+. The 512GB version will likely have very limited quantities and won't be available in all markets, so it will likely command a very premium price as well.
Both the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ are expected to have a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor inside, although as always Asian markets and other territories outside of the US and China will have Samsung's in-house flagship Exynos processor instead, in this case the Exynos 9810. The Galaxy S9 series is also expected to have the same screen size as its predecessors in the Galaxy S8 range, meaning the Galaxy S9 will have a 5.8-inch display while the Galaxy S9+ will be 6.2-inches. The Galaxy S9 is also said to have a single camera only, while the Galaxy S9+ will have a dual-camera setup.
We'll find out all of this and more when the Mobile World Congress rolls around next month.
