Purported Galaxy S9 retail box reveals specifications

A purported Galaxy S9 retail box has leaked online and it reveals the specifications of Samsung’s upcoming flagship smartphone. These specs have already been rumored multiple times so it’s not surprising to see them on the back of a box.

The box mentions that the Galaxy S9 is going to have a 5.8-inch curved Infinity Display. Previous reports suggest that it’s going to retain the same 18.5:9 aspect ratio of its predecessor.

It’s not uncommon for such leaks to surface in the days leading up to a flagship launch. There’s always the possibility that it might be fake or doctored but some of the specs listed on the box have been mentioned in earlier reports.

As per the box, the Galaxy S9 is going to feature a “Super Speed” 12-megapixel Dual Pixel rear camera with Optical Image Stabilization. It’s likely going to be the new 1.28-micrometer 12-megapixel ISOCELL Fast 2L9 sensor with Dual Pixel technology that Samsung launched three months ago. It apparently supports variable aperture, offering f/1.5 for low light shots and f/2.4 for when there’s plenty of daylight. The box also mentions Super Slow-mo which is in line with rumors that the Galaxy S9 might support 1000fps slow motion like the Sony Xperia XZ Premium.

Whether or not that’s actually true remains to be seen. There’s a great chance that this is a very convincing fake but the box bears similarities to retail boxes for the Galaxy Note 8 and Galaxy S8. So this leak may very well be legitimate. The Galaxy S9 may also have an 8-megapixel front camera with autofocus. The dual camera system is reportedly going to be reserved for the Galaxy S9+.

The usual suspects are present as well, these include the iris scanner, wireless charging support and IP68 dust and water resistance. The box also mentions Stereo Speakers tuned by AKG for the Galaxy S9. The handset is going to ship with earphones tuned by AKG. Last but not the least, it’s going to have 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage.

The Galaxy S9 will be powered by Samsung’s latest Exynos 9810 chip in most markets. Samsung will release a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845-powered variant in select markets like North America.

Samsung has confirmed that the Galaxy S9 is going to be launched at Mobile World Congress 2018 in Barcelona next month.

Note8 box says “knox protected” unless it’s a Chinese fake then it’ll probably say “protected by fairy dust” lol

It could be fake onky nit due the KNOX part.

The Knox moniker was discontinued by Samsung last year. There is no “Secured by Knox” printed on Samsung retail boxes. It’s not on Note8, and it definitely won’t be on the S9 as Knox service has been replaced by Secure Folder.. This is as fake as a 3 dollar bill.

That is not true! What tech is behind the Secure folder you think? Yeah that’s right it is KNOX.

My KNOX has been discontinued….

It’s going to have the same camera as Samsung W2018. I doubt it’s going to be the ISOCELL Fast 2L9 sensor. 1000fps is a 2-year old rumor. Instead, it’s going to support 4K @ 120FPS and 1080p @ 240FPS.

Dual speakers???? 100000% fake.

Oh please!!! It’s fake, did you not notice the bad grammar for heavens sake? Samsung NEVER use wording like this. “Super Slow-mo” with no fps value…. Seriously?? “Super Fast” dual Pixel?? Come on Sammobile, you know Samsung never use terms like that… AND did you check the grammar on the screen description?? Some 15 years old kid made this. Nobody could be stupid enough to think that’s genuine.. Lolol., Please think about what you write before showing us something so obviously faked…

Makes it sound like a hot wheels toy you get as a bonus package. Get rid of those stupid words, Samsung. It’s so childish but most of all cheesy. Just irks me in a way.

It’s extremely unlikely that Samsung managed to put a variable aperture in the camera. The phone would need to be very thick to achieve that. So the F1.5/2.4 are more likely to be the aperture of each camera (meaning it has a dual camera) than a variable aperture in just one. Regardless, 4GB of RAM pretty much “kills” the little interest I already had in this S8 S. Shame. I really liked the S7 (so much so that I’m still using it, after nearly 2 years. I never keep phones this long) but Samsung has so far failed to produce… Read more »

Actually it’s not difficult to do. Way back in 2009 Nokia made a dual aperture optical lens with the Nokia N86 MP phone. It’s just that nobody has done it again since then. Having said that if anyone thinks that box is actually genuine given the stupid description AND the grammar mistake in the screen description, they’d be dumb enough to say a dual aperture camera is impossible..

A8+ 6GB and S9 4GB
Oh dear!!! Samsung at its best again with those occasional weird choices.

They want to be cheap and annoy Samsung fans with rubbish specs.

Hope the S10 wont be single lens and 4gb ram

Excited for this. I couldn’t care less about the whole dual camera gimmick. Google showed us that you don’t need one.

Yes, but Samsung most likely won’t be offering a software mode like Google for portrait photos via the single back camera, since that would take away half of the reason for the dual cameras on the Plus model to exist.

No one uses portrait mode outside of the honey moon period. What I was implying is that the Pixel has the best camera on the market without all the useless features but portrait mode. The S9 is perfect in that regard. I only wish it had 6GB of RAM like the S9+

As a Note 8 owner I can tell you now, dual lenses one with an optical magnification is great

not Samsung’s way of writing
Also it can’t be secured by Knox, Samsung announced there is no Knox anymore

“Super speed Dual Pixel” camera. Shinier words for the camera to make up for the lack of dual cameras on the regular S9?
