It is that that of the year when the rumors for Samsung’s new flagship start flowing in. Just few days ago, the front panel (not really the panel but screen protectors) was leaked in the video giving us insights about the front of the Galaxy S9 lineup.
This time it is another beloved feature that has been confirmed after the devices got certified via FCC on December 27th. The certification didn’t reveal a lot about the design language but we did get to know that the Galaxy S9 series is going to keep the headphone jack. At the bottom of the chip we have the USB-C flex cable leak which confirms the existence of the 3.5mm audio jack. While it might bother some but recently, not having the headphone jack has been a deal breaker for many consumers.
Coming back to FCC, the listing reveals the model numbers SM-G960F (Galaxy S9) and SM965F (Galaxy S9+). There have been rumors that Samsung might showcase the Galaxy S9 lineup in the upcoming CES 2018 but it’s not true and people should not believe that rumor. Considering the additional time Samsung takes to test the batteries now, after the Galaxy Note 7 fiasco we won’t get the new flagships before MWC.
According to earlier rumors, the Galaxy S9 and S9+ will sport a 5.8-inch and 6.2 inch Super AMOLED Infinity displays, respectively. The new flagships are said to be powered by Snapdragon 845 and Exynos 9 Series 9810 SoCs depending on the region.
