In a press release yesterday Samsung confirmed that their next flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S9, will be revealed on Sunday, February 25th to kick off the 2018 Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.
As the teaser suggests, an improved camera system will be a marquee feature of the new devices—that is, the S9 and S9+. According to a reputable leaker on Twitter the big deal this year will be a variable aperture on the rear facing camera lenses:
S9 Camera：12MP F2.4/F1.5 960fps
S9+ Camera：12MP+13MP F1.4？ 960fps

If you were hoping for a better placement of the rear-mounted fingerprint sensor this year, here’s a video of an alleged S9 dummy unit:
Ok, I guess that’s slightly better…
Other unsubstantiated rumours include a front camera with a 3D sensor (whatever that is), and stereo speakers (finally). Any other juicy leaks will be reported on here; stay tuned!
