Samsung and LG to announce new smartphones at CES 2018

Samsung smartphone

The ET News source says the phones will have the same 18:9 Infinity Displays as featured on the Samsung Galaxy S8. The Galaxy S8 was delayed from its original launch plan and didn't arrive until around April/May.

As mentioned above, there are a variety of rumors that seem pretty reliable regarding what exactly we can expect from the upcoming Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus.

Samsung will show off the Galaxy A8 and A8 Plus aside from a peek into the Galaxy S9 and S9+.

Unlike Samsung, other smartphone vendors in the top five list - Apple, Huawei, Oppo and Xiaomi - are expected to maintain growth in 2018.

Samsung and LG to announce new smartphones at CES 2018

According to previous leaks, the new Galaxy S9 smartphones would have a few changes compare to its original Galaxy S8 phones. The renders, which have not been independently confirmed and consequently might or might not be the real thing, show a device that comes with numerous same design features as the Galaxy S8 line, but with some important distinctions. The display will also be similar to its predecessors, with a 5.8-inch Super AMOLED quad HD display on the S9 and a slightly larger 6.2-inch version on the S9 Plus. Additionally, it appears that both a Type-C USB port AND the 3.5mm headphone jack have survived onto the Galaxy S9 series, embedded once again in the base plate. When it comes to software, they'll reportedly ship with "Split View" and "Pop-Up View" - Samsung's split-screen and picture-in-picture modes, respectively - and Bixby Home and Bixby Remind services. The Galaxy S9 is basically a Galaxy S8 with a new rear camera and fingerprint sensor arrangement.

Lastly on the subject of design, we have seen reports that the Galax S9 series will arrive in four colours, down from last year's initial spread (though more may come later, in Samsung's usual style).

At this point we don't know anything about the specifics of the camera hardware in terms of megapixel ratings, aperture sizes, or anything else.

The Galaxy S9 render, for instance, features a new component alignment on its back.
