Samsung’s upcoming S9 and S9 Plus flagships have just been certified by the FCC on December 27th, and just as expected there is nothing about both the phone’s specifications in the FCC documents. The listing doesn’t even reveal the design outline of the flagships as some of the papers were submitted to the FCC way back in mid-November at a time when designed might not have been finalized
However, the listing reveals the model numbers of the unlocked models; SM-G960F and SM-G965F for the Plus variant. There are many other pit stops from carriers and other certifications before the official launch. The devices were already being tested by authorities in China. With FCC certification, things might be going for Samsung just as planned and if the listings and certifications are any clues, we might actually see the flagships seeing in the day at the MWC 2018 event as expected.
As opposed to few rumors which claim that the flagships might be launched earlier than expected, considering the additional time Samsung takes to test the batteries after the Galaxy Note 7 fiasco there won’t be any further change in the MWC 2018 schedule just as planned. Hold on, that is not all, we also have the USB-C flex cable leak which confirms the existence of the 3.5mm audio jack.
Unlike many flagships including Google Pixel 2 series, Samsung is yet again seen retaining the audio jack which needs to be appreciated. Earlier rumors suggested that the S9 and S9 Plus sport a 5.8-inch and 6.2-inch curved-edge Super AMOLED Infinity displays, respectively and are said to be powered by Snapdragon 845 and Exynos 9 Series 9810 SoCs depending on the region. The S9 packs 4GB of RAM compared to the 6GB RAM on the S9+, the fingerprint sensor is now said to have been moved below the camera. We should know more details as we move forward from this point onwards.
