Both the Samsung Galaxy S9 and the Galaxy S9+ have now been certified by the FCC, the apex governing body of the United States, indicating an imminent launch. We have covered these devices in great detail earlier. Only yesterday, we had reported how the devices would probably launch in January 2018. Then, we reported how the 3.5mm headphone jack would be retained on Galaxy S9+. Now, the FCC certification will clear the way for the launch.
The FCC certification has also shown off that the internationally available unlocked models of the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ will bear the model numbers of SM-G960F and the SM-G965F, respectively. Currently, there is no information on the carrier specific models as well as the models of these devices which are meant for the Asian markets.
Now, we already know the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ have already passed through the FCC certification, clearing the decks for imminent launch. Keep in mind that the South Korean giant Samsung had already applied for the FCC clearance certificate in mid-November. No price tag has have been finalized as of now.
These devices will be significant upgrades to the Samsung Galaxy S8 duo. However, the design philosophy is expected to remain the same. The Galaxy S9 will arrive with a 5.8-inch display while the more premium Plus variant will allegedly flaunt a slightly larger 6.2-inch display. Both these devices will have an aspect ratio of 18.5:9. We have previously reported how the design will be like.
Last week, we had reported on a leaked pair of cases which had shown off the design and the great effect it has on the dual rear cameras. Incidentally, the Galaxy S9 duo might well be unveiled at the MWC 2018 tech show, we can expect them to launch in international stores in early March 2018. Stay glued to us for further updates.
