Samsung’s upcoming flagship mobile devices will be the Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus; both are expected to roll out in January 2018. When it comes to the front of the camera, Samsung’s next-gen S series might beat Apple’s recently launched iPhone 8, 8 Plus, and iPhone X.

According to ETNews (via Trusted Reviews), the South Korean tech company will launch the Galaxy S9 with the capability of capturing up to 1,000 frames per second. This camera feature will allow users to capture 40x slow motion video, which would be faster compared to Apple’s latest iPhones.

The mass production of the smartphone’s new image sensor is expected to kickoff in November.

Latest image sensor

The new image sensor of the handset consists a three-layer design with a fast on-chip memory as well as a logic processor. The inclusion of the fast memory enables the smartphone’s sensor to store the data of the video before it is saved by the application of the camera. The three-layer image sensor of the company is expected to come along with the next-gen Galaxy devices, which include the highly anticipated Note 9.

Concept video of the device

Meanwhile, the concept video of the Galaxy S9 seems better compared to Apple’s iPhone X. The latest concept video of the mobile device was created by the DBS Designing YouTube channel, according to BGR.

The video showcased the handset’s slim bezels and virtual navigation buttons.

The concept video also showed the handset’s glass and metal body with a 5.8-inch Infinity OLED Quad HD display and an aspect ratio of 18:9. The fingerprint sensor of the mobile device is embedded into its display.

Samsung's forthcoming smartphone will be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 system on chip (SoC), paired with a 6GB of RAM and a 128GB of internal storage.

The smartphone will run on the Android Oreo operating system out of the box.

At the very top of the mobile device’s front panel, it contains a slim cutout that will feature the iris scanner, front camera, ear speaker, as well as other sensors. The cellular strength, battery and Wi-Fi icons are located on the right side, while the time and date are positioned on the left side.

The Galaxy S9 will roll out with a USB Type-C port, a loudspeaker as well as a 3.5mm headphone jack.

The Cat 18 LTE support of the device allows its user to reach a download speed of up to 1.2Mbps, which is 20 percent faster than Galaxy S8’s 1Gbps modem. There is no word yet regarding the official price of the S9, but the handset is expected to cost $930.
