    By the way, the design looks way better than the S8... The curves seem less and doesn't warp the screen and the fingerprint scanner is centered so it's much more convenient. Still think the UI icons are ugly though.

    When will it be announced online?That's what I'm waiting to see. I'm skeptical about any leaks, even though over the past couple years I've seen some leaks pretty close to the actual specs.

    The photo is a real photo accidentally leaked by Samsung. If you look at the Galaxy A8 you'll see it has a similar design.

    "According to Korean publication ETNews, the Galaxy S9 may cost between 925,000 and 1 million won (between $875 and $925). That’s a significant jump over the Galaxy S8’s starting price of $720."

    Probably more expensive because of the dual lens and Samsung themselves trying to price their phones closer to Apple. Basically the price of the Note 8 minus the pen feature.

    Anything confirming the S9+ specs? I've read 6 GB RAM/128 GB storage.

    Wow.. the spec sheet and photo combo is pretty disappointing. Low memory, no push on RAM, body still glass, edges still curved, looks like we still have a bixby button problem, software still broken (knox and ui still shows heavy modification) ... so it's a slightly refined S8 with a 2018 SoC and hopefully we're going to see some camera improvements.

    Also we should say renders, not photos. That's not a photograph of an actual device. Photo of a piece of material with specs, render of device.

    Rumors say that the S9+ is the one that's getting the bump on RAM and other stuff.

    But overall pretty much on par with Samsung:
    With the exception of the S5, it was S1 refreshed to S2, S3 brought change then refined in S4, S6 again brought change and refined in S7, S8 brought another design change then should be refined in S9.

    Right. Like Apple, I wouldn’t expect a redesign until the X/10. With the S8 being such a hit, I don’t think you want to mess too much with that formula. Besides, other flagships (like the Pixel) do just fine with those specs.

    Spec junkies will just go for the plus version.

    I wasn't aware the plus had different specs other than the obvious display size, dimensions and battery size.

    6 GB of RAM, as opposed to 4 GB, 128 GB of storage, as opposed to 64GB, dual cameras, as opposed to single.

    Definitely more interested in the 9+ then, but still want to see the Note 9 a little more.

    I want to upgrade from my Nexus 6P, but I don't know where I should go next. I value wired audio , battery life and screen visibility in sunlight, since the 6P has none. I'm scared to come back to Samsung with the S9+ or the Note 8/9, LG has its own issues, HTC gets virtually no play anymore. The Mate 10 Pro has the huge battery, but do I want another Huawei phone? I hate the FPS scanner placement on the Note 8, and it's still expensive. I don't know what to do.

    I'd be checking out the Pixel 2 XL and the S9+ with one exception to each. The Pixel 2 XL imo is the better device unless by wired audio you mean that using the USB C adapter is a no - go - in which case I'd assume audio is important enough that the V30 might be the best bet. The S9+ would be the next place leader for me unless software, security, OS updates and/or design are important, in which case it may be better to take a look at Nokia's best devices.

    This. I'd pay special attention to the last part about Nokia devices. Just remember they're an option now. Really enjoying the Nokia 8, and I expect the Nokia 8 Sirocco (aka Nokia 9) being announced at MWC this month to have some improvements over it.

    The 2 XL is a no for me, after I held it in hand at a local Verizon store. The blue shift on the screen was horrible, and to me, it didn't feel premium, despite the fact that it was obviously fast. The Note 8 by comparison, was gorgeous, but Samsung software scares me.

    Sorry, by wired audio I mean with a quality pair of earphones, either through the headphone jack or an adapter. Although I'm used to being first in line for updates, even those have slowed to where I end up waiting til the end of the month, when I'd usually get updates in the second week. I don't know whether I care enough at this point about updates, as long as other needs are met. And honestly, as fast as it is, stock is quite boring.

    My recommendation would be the S9+ then. Samsung's software is MUCH improved over prior years and 6 GB RAM coupled with the 2018 chips should be able to easily overcome whatever improvement is left to do.

    I am intrigued by the S9+, no doubt. The FPS is in a much better position, and I'm hoping the lilac purple color is available in the States. Although, I'll probably go with an unlocked Exynos variant, since it's Samsung's own processer, optimized to work best with the software.

    I'd bet a lot of money that lilac is available at launch in the US. And I agree that Samsung's software has improved dramatically. What was the last Samsung you had? My Note8 (and that of many others) has a freezing bug unfortunately, but assuming that won't be a problem again the software experience is light, snappy, and lag-free. I assume the S9 will be at least as good as the Note8 in that regard.

    My last Samsung was an international variant S3 (I-9300), lol. Although, my mom currently has a Note 4, and a Galaxy Tab A, 10.1 in. on Nougat, both of which I set up for her. I will say that the UI on the tablet looks much more streamlined, and it was snappy.
