Samsung Galaxy S9 And Galaxy S9+ Receive FCC Certification; Agency Takes Down Pages Soon After
Advent of the internet has changed how we communicate and receive information drastically and permanently. All it takes is a few click and voila, the entire world is at your doorstep. Of course, this also leads to a lot of bogus information out there. Sorting this for the real deal takes time and experience. And one good guarantor of authentic information, related to leaks, is when it’s taken down soon after discovery.
Same is the case with today’s Galaxy S9/S9+ FCC certification. Samsung’s G960F and G965F have both passed through the agency’s systems. These refer to the Galaxy S9 and S9+ respectively. While this certification doesn’t provide any technical details, it does point towards an upcoming launch. It’s always nice to receive corroboration from official sources. A FCC certification means Samsung’s ready to launch its 2018 flagships soon.
Importantly, it’s the international variants of the smartphones that receive certification. The database does not provide any reference to US or other region specific devices. Samsung’s Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ will carry 5.8″ and 6.2″ screens respectively. The big change next year is the introduction of a dual camera setup for the larger device. Samsung’s held out on the feature for its flagship smartphones, choosing to give the Note lineup preference.
Furthermore, the pair will feature increased screen to body ratio. This won’t be due to new displays. Rather, Samsung will further reduce bezels on the S9 lineup. The Exynos 9810 and Snapdragon 845 will power non-US and US variants respectively. As for RAM, the S9 is rumored with 4GB and the S9+ with 6GB. Thoughts?
