Samsung is preparing to launch a variant of the Galaxy S9 Plus that’s complete with 6GB of RAM and an eye-watering 512GB of internal storage, according to a (somewhat) reliable Weibo tipster – but don’t get too excited.
Weibo user Martian has reason to believe the firm will launch the high-capacity model of the Galaxy S9 Plus exclusively in China, alongside the regular 64GB, 128GB and 256GB versions – all of which are expected to come equipped with 6GB of RAM.
The Galaxy S9, on the other hand, is tipped to feature the same 4GB of RAM as its predecessor, the Galaxy S8. It should also be available with identical storage configurations: 64GB and 128GB, as per the bulk of rumours currently doing the rounds.
It’s looking like the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus will both ship with an Infinity Display – 5.8- and 6.2-inches, respectively – an all-new Exynos 9810/Snapdragon 845 processor, and a repositioned fingerprint sensor.
Other than screen size, what’s the difference between the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus, you ask? Well, the latter is rumoured to pack a dual-camera, as well as the Live Focus ‘bokeh’ manipulation software that debuted on the Galaxy Note 8.
It’s also expected to leave the factory with a larger battery – the exact capacity is unknown, unfortunately. We think Samsung will play it safe though, in light of 2016’s Galaxy Note 7 debacle, so don’t hope for anything too out of the ordinary.
Seeing as there’s no way to confirm the aforementioned details, we’d recommend taking them with a grain of salt. That’s not to mean they aren’t feasible, however – because they are. We’re just opting to reserve judgement until we know more, especially when it comes to potential availability in the UK, US and Europe.
