  • Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+, iterative upgrades, will make a cameo at CES

Here's where things get a little interesting: Other than their screen sizes, the Galaxy S8 and S8+ were almost identical in every way.

The tipsters go on to state that Samsung is referring to the S9 phones as the Star 1 and Star 2, each with the model numbers SM-G960 and SM-G965.

This mainly means the same 5.8-inch and 6.2-inch curved-edge Super AMOLED "Infinity" displays, but Samsung has also taken the opportunity to correct the main issue with the S8 range- the back-mounted fingerprint reader. It's likely the phones will use the Snapdragon 845 and the equivalent 10nm Exynos version in selected markets.

The Galaxy S9+ will boast 6GB of RAM compared to the 4GB expected on the Galaxy S9. 64GB of internal storage and a microSD card slot will be present as well.

Iranian Hacker Charged in HBO Breach
According to the indictment , Mesri "was a member of an Iran-based hacking group called the Turk Black Hat security team". He said Mesri would face consequences even though United States authorities could not immediately arrest him.

This new setup is also "confirmed" by the appearance of some purported cases for the Galaxy S9 from manufacturer Ghostek, which showed up on BoyGeniusReport. Along with more RAM, the S9+ will also feature dual cameras just as the Note8. And in another first, the S9 family will come with AKG-branded stereo speakers. This should address complaints about the Galaxy S8/S8+ and the Note 8 which most users found the fingerprint sensor to be quite awkwardly placed.

Although the phones will probably like strikingly similar to the 2017 Galaxy models (other than the upgraded specs), Samsung might actually be giving one phone a couple of new features that the other won't get.

We still have time to see whether Samsung's new Galaxy S flagships debut at CES or not as it's not even December yet and I still have turkey to eat. It's early days, but the leaks will begin flowing freely soon enough. You could think of the S9 to the S8 as the S7 was to the S6.
