What people want
- A cheaper variant
Everyone wants value for money. As good as the Samsung Galaxy S series is, people, do not see it as an investment worth making. A cheaper variant, however, seems like the ideal fix to this problem. The people want a cheaper variant of the Samsung Galaxy S9.
- Foldable screen
This seems like too much to ask for right now. However, people from around the world have requested various reputed brands to release a smart phone with a foldable screen. Smart phones with foldable screens were recently pictured in Asia. This gave rise to the people’s demand to see the feature in Samsung’s next flagship.
- Dual lens camera
The improvements made on the camera of the Galaxy S8 disappointed a few people. People expected a large megapixel figure with a dual lens camera. However, due to the lack of time, Samsung could only provide a 12MP camera with single lens. Hopefully, the S9 wouldn’t face the same problem.
- A larger battery
Samsung Galaxy S8 was released with many upgrades to its predecessor. However, its battery size compared to its other features faded its value. A 3000 mAh is something which would hold back the people from buying the device. We expect Samsung to work on this and increase the battery size to at least 4000 mAh.
Comparison to its predecessor
A lot of upgrades are expected in Samsung Galaxy S9 when compared to its predecessor. An increase in camera quality, device RAM, display resolutions, battery size and much more are expected from the next flagship. However, the size of the screen (5.8” on the Samsung Galaxy S8) is expected to drop down in the next variant of the series. A change in placement of fingerprint sensor, a thinner body, and other hardware feature upgrades are also expected. With all these upgrades Samsung Galaxy S9 Price is expected to be much more than the S8 ($720 base).
Samsung Galaxy S9 has skyrocketed the consumers’ expectations with its rumored features and pricing. This should alert all of its competitors. However, judging the mobile phone already would be unfair to both Samsung and its competitors since all we have right now are rumors.
The aspects like pricing are all uncertain yet. Although one thing is certain, if Samsung can create anything close to what the rumors say and at the same time price the device as per the people’s liking, the throne of this market will be theirs yet again. What are your expectations with the device?
