  • An image recently uploaded to Reddit could potentially
    be the Samsung Galaxy S9 retail box.
  • The box gives away many details of the upcoming Galaxy
    S9.
  • Samsung has confirmed the Galaxy S9 will be unveiled in
    February.

Samsung has
already confirmed
that it will announce its Galaxy S9
flagship in February, but that hasn’t stopped interesting leaks
from surfacing. A
Reddit user
on Friday shared an image they claim is the
Galaxy S9 retail box.

The box potentially reveals several details about the Galaxy S9,
including its camera, audio, storage and security features, among
others. However, we cannot confirm whether or not the packaging
is real, so take all of this information with a grain of salt.

Previous rumors indicated the Galaxy S9 would be very similar to
the Galaxy s8 in terms of both design and specs. The leaked
packaging also looks very similar to the Galaxy S8’s box. While
the image below looks extremely convincing, this could still be a
Galaxy S8 box edited to look like a box for the Galaxy S9.

So far, it appears major updates on the Galaxy S9 may
primarily focus on internal hardware and less so on design and
special features. The Galaxy S9 may have nearly identical specs
to the Galaxy
S8
, including its front and rear
cameras, water
resistance, iris scanner, and storage and memory capacities. The
Galaxy S9 may also include AKG-branded headphones optimized for
the device, similar to the Galaxy S8.

The main differences in the Galaxy S9, as the tweet above points
out, would be the “super slow-mo” and “super speed” features for
the rear camera, and the AKG-tuned stereo speakers. The
relatively weak front-facing speakers were among people’s biggest
complaints
with last year’s Galaxy S8.

The Galaxy S9 is expected to have an edgeless “Infinity” display
and no home button, also similar to the Galaxy S8. While the
Galaxy S9 will likely have its fingerprint scanner on the back of
the handset like the Galaxy S8, Samsung may move its placement
for easier accessibility.

The Galaxy S9 is also said to take some inspiration from Apple’s
iPhone 8 and 8 Plus by including a single lens camera on the
standard Galaxy 9 model and a dual-lens camera on the larger
Galaxy S9+ model. Recent reports also suggest the Galaxy S9 may
feature Samsung’s Exynos 9810 chip, which could power
facial-recognition features similar to Apple’s Face ID and
Animoji on the iPhone X.
