Samsung Will Make The Galaxy S9 And Galaxy S9+ As Compact As Possible, Borrowing A Leaf From Apple’s Book
Samsung's Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ will refine their predecessors' form factor. While most manufacturers keep dimensions unchanged, today we've got some fresh news. The S9 and S9+ will be smaller than their predecessors. We saw a couple of case leaks recently, which highlighted this difference as well. Samsung's got a lot of resources, so the company is able to improve things a lot faster than Apple. With the S9 lineup, this means making the pair as compact as possible - a leaf borrowed straight from Apple's book. Take a look below for more details.
New Leak For The Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ Claims To Provide Accurate Details For The Pair's Size; Samsung Will Make Things As Compact As Possible, While Improve Hardware Performance Significantly
Today, we've got a small but very important leak for Samsung's upcoming Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+. So far, the rumor mill has concerned itself with leaks related to heavy-duty specifications. After all, these are what Samsung's preferred market segment desires. In a race made even shorted by Face ID, Seoul is desperate to keep up technologically.
However, this does not mean we won't get a focus on the details which really matter. Keep in mind that Samsung is an Eastern company. If you understand corporate practices on the other side of the planet, it's considered a sign of respect to learn from your competitor. And according to today's leak, Samsung is heavily influenced by this as well.
An old Apple myth describes the scene when an iPod prototype was presented to Steve Jobs. He dropped in a tank of water, instructing the engineering team to make the device more compact. Why? Because air bubbles floating out of the iPod meant there was still more empty space inside. True or false, Samsung will jam pack its Galaxy S9 and S9+ this year. However, while the pair's length and width will decrease, their width will increase. This is surprising, especially as battery capacity will not increase.
Not that we're complaining. The dimensions above suggest that length will decrease in a greater proportion as compared to the width. This perfectly falls in line with supply chain reports which suggests that Samsung will shave off top and bottom bezels for the Galaxy S9 and S9+; instead of equipping them with different display panels. The pair will also feature a $850 starting price, according to recent quips. Thoughts? Let us know what you think in the comments section below and stay tuned. We'll keep you updated on the latest.
