In terms of rumoured specifications, the Galaxy S9 would feature a 5.8-inch Infinity display, along with 12MP and 16MP dual cameras to the front and rear. It's a glass half full sort of thing. However, fresh reports pertaining to the device lay special stress on the larger variant of Samsung's upcoming flagship, the Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus.

Samsung has accidentally leaked its own unannounced smartphoneSamsung Galaxy S9 release date - when can you get it? The only major change that the device has is a repositioned fingerprint sensor.

The phone will be launched at the MWC 2018, to be held from February 25-March 1 in Barcelona. For those phones who already updated to the new Oreo earlier this month, or who have Android 8.0 on Galaxy S8 duo, the file itself will weigh a little over 530 MB.

The Galaxy S9 will possibly ship with two different processors. The chipset will be paired with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage in the Galaxy S9, and 6GB of RAM with 128GB/256GB storage on the Galaxy S9+.

Indeed some sources suggest that the S9 will have a variable aperture that will adjust depending on light conditions between f/1.5 - f/2.4. The display would be an 18.5:9 Super AMOLED panel, with both devices being powered by either an Exynos 9810 or Qualcomm Snapdragon 845, depending on the market. Expected is at least one phone, the Xperia XZ2, and perhaps a second - a new Premium, or diminutive Compact.

XDA Developers also points out a couple of smaller details in the models: a new flash and a redesigned heart rate monitor.

Performance is probably going to be great too. Of course, given that the prices are in Euro, they'll reflect taxes on top of the retail cost, so the price is a bit inflated over the sticker (that is, pre-tax) price you'll see in the US. But it looks like Samsung fixed the rebooting issues that prompted it to pull the hotly anticipated update shortly after releasing it, and the Oreo upgrade has now resumed - just not in the US.
