Samsung could unveil new social network "Uhssup" with Galaxy S9

As is practically tradition at this point, numerous official renderings of the S9 have leaked out (mostly from VentureBeat's Evan Blass).

When it comes to battery capacity, the Galaxy S9 series will reportedly retain the same battery sizes as their predecessors.

You should expect to pay probably another £80-£100 for the Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus which will be arguably the better phone, particularly if you're a large screen fanatic. Nevertheless, taking inspiration from the Galaxy Note 8, the Galaxy S9 duo will have a slightly boxier design, which shouldn't change much. On the other hand, the top bezel will be the same size.

This is supposedly the Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus in lilac purple.

The Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ appear to have jumped by NOK 1200 and NOK 1300, respectively, as compared to the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+. The most noteworthy of them all was its fingerprint scanner's placement which was awkward for most.

UFC's Whittaker, Romero rematch not ideal, but necessary
After Rockhold had gathered some of his scattered bearings, Romero tried to console him, something that made for a hard watch. However, several medical issues forced Whittaker off the card, forcing UFC officials to book Rockhold against Romero instead.

There's seemingly very little we don't know about these phones by now, but let's hope Samsung has at least one exciting surprise in store to make the launch in 6 days time just a little bit exciting. A similar setup is also seen in Samsung's W2018 flip phone that was recently launched in China.

For those who depend on their smartphones for taking photos, both units rely on a 12-megapixel rear camera, while the Galaxy S8 gives their users a one-megapixel advantage over iPhone users who love to take selfies with their front cameras. For its part, the front camera on the Galaxy A8+ is one of its best features, and Live Focus does a great job in terms of creating a bokeh effect for shots. We've also bounced these prices off some of our contacts in retail so, again, we're pretty confident these are accurate predictions for a Samsung Galaxy S9 contract price. The phone's camera would be able to switch between f/1.5 and f/2.4 aperture based on the lighting condition.

These cameras will also support "Super Slow Mo" recording which is described as a 480 Hz slow-motion 720p video. Then there is the iris shown as well which too likely refers to the improved iris recognition system the S9 is believed to come with. That's not exactly news, though, considering we saw these "tuned by AKG" stereo speakers mentioned on a leaked retail box all the way back in January, and another report last week corroborated the same.

Processor: The Samsung Galaxy S9 and the Galaxy S9+ will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 or Exynos 9810 processor.
