Will the Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus offer a huge 512GB of memory?

Will the Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus offer a huge 512GB of memory?

The rumours surrounding Samsung and their upcoming flagships, the Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus, are hot right now and we’re excited about what’s to come.

Earlier this month we reported all the up to date rumours surrounding the smaller of the pair, the S9, which is reported to be offering 5GB of RAM and either 64GB or 128GB of storage.

However, Samsung is really upping their game with the internals of the larger Galaxy S9 Plus, which is set to hit an industry high with a huge 6GB of RAM and 64GB, 128GB or 256GB of storage, with some regions even enjoying a 512GB model.

Samsung Galaxy S9 plus

With Samsung’s recent release of the Exynos 9810 chipset, we are likely to see upgraded features on the next Galaxy devices. These are likely to include a depth sensing feature to scan user’s face in 3D for face tracking filters, 4K video at up to 120fps,  a single-core performance that is twice as good as the Exynos 8895 and multi-core performance that shows a 40% improvement.

We won’t have long to wait for confirmation, as Samsung is likely to announce both the Samsung Galaxy S9 and Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus at MWC 2018 in late February 2018.

  • iPhone X has a new 2.5K Higher Resolution Full HD+ display with 2436×1125 pixels and 458 pixels per inch, with 2.7 Mega Pixels, 32% more than an HDTV
  • A Super Dim Setting that allows the Maximum Screen Brightness to be set all the way down to just 2 cd/m2 (nits) using the Brightness Slider
  • Highest Absolute Color Accuracy for any display  (0.9 JNCD) which is Visually Indistinguishable From Perfect.
