Enlarge / The Samsung Galaxy S8+.

The newest within the endless line of Samsung Galaxy S9 leaks has to do with the field. Reddit person minhvn shared a picture of what seems to be a Galaxy S9 field, and it appears fairly legit to us. With the expectation that the Galaxy S9 will look rather a lot just like the Galaxy S8, the field exhibits all of the specs you’d count on: a 5.Eight-inch 1440p OLED show, an iris scanner, 64GB of reminiscence, 4GB of RAM, and wi-fi charging.

The principle new addition within the spec listing is a 12MP rear digital camera that lists two digital camera apertures: f/1.5 and f/2.four. This sounds just like the Galaxy S9 will ship with the identical variable aperture digital camera that Samsung has already shipped within the W2018 flip telephone. In non-ideal lighting circumstances, the W2018 makes use of the f/1.5 aperture to gather as a lot mild as doable, however in brighter lighting, it switches to f/2.four for a wider depth of subject. Samsung’s $1,500 ($1,500? $1,500!) flip telephone would not have a large distribution, however the gif of this digital camera working is fairly unimaginable—identical to a DSLR, a set of miniaturized aperture blades open and shut with the altering mild ranges.

One other characteristic revealed by the spec listing is a set of stereo audio system. Once more, with the understanding that the Galaxy S9 will look rather a lot just like the Galaxy S8, this almost definitely implies that the earpiece now doubles as a second speaker, and can play together with the same old bottom-firing speaker.

The Galaxy S9 will launch at Cell World Congress in February.
