Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus: Do latest teaser trailers confirm speculations?

/ 08:37 PM February 15, 2018

New Samsung trailers, leaks and speculations continue to paint a picture of Samsung’s soon-to-be unveiled flagship phone, and it’s looking more and more like a Galaxy S8 with better cameras and a few iPhone features.

Teaser trailers on SamsungMobileKorea’s YouTube page seem to have confirmed the high quality of the Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus cameras. But not only that, now there are leaks that suggest the phones will have stereo speakers and 3D emojis.

Three teaser trailers were released Wednesday, each boasting different features. The first video appears to promise speed as well as the Samsung Galaxy S9’s slo-mo capabilities and highly developed camera quality.

The second one shows low-light photography.

And the third one may be confirming the 3D emojis rumors.

ETNews claims that there will now be a 3D emoji feature on the S9 and S9 Plus, using the front shooters, to create something similar to what Apple calls the Animoji. For those who haven’t experienced this feature it, it basically takes your facial expressions and mirrors them onto an “emoji” character. These characters are often animals and it is rumored that Samsung will implement something along these lines in its upcoming flagship device.

As for the stereo speakers, according to ETNews, there will be one speaker at the top and another at the bottom; if true, this may be an improvement made following the complaints about the speaker placements on the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy Note 8. Users felt that, while watching videos, their hands would cover the speaker and mask the sound. This change would of course help, however nothing is yet confirmed.

Another design change that could eliminate inconveniences for the brand’s fans, is the placement of the fingerprint reader. Until now it has been placed at the side of the Galaxy camera, often resulting in people smudging their lens, whereas now, the S9 will have the fingerprint reader below the camera.
