Furthermore, the Galaxy S9 will feature Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845, released around MWC next year. The device’s display will be different from its predecessors, with lower top and bottom bezels and a taller display. The S8’s aspect ratio is quite different from its predecessors, so it’ll be interesting to see how the smartphone turns out.

What’s more important is will Samsung be able to adequately manufacturer 3D Facial recognition’s components for the S9? After all, it’s the very same components which give are creating headaches for Apple as well. Given the Korean tech giant’s enormous resources, it just might be able to do so.
