In many ways , these days it seems that the annual CES fair in Las Vegas is where consumer technology is going to die. Vibrant smart jeans? Wearables strangers? Temporary tattoo printers? Verify, verify and verify. All major names such as Apple, Microsoft and Google have largely abandoned the event as a place for great products in favor of their own press events.
Samsung, however, could be about to change all that. According to VentureBeat the manufacturer based in South Korea will present the latest version of its line of Galaxy S smartphones at CES next year in just a couple of months. That's right, this January could give a preview of both the Galaxy S9 and the Galaxy S9 +.
Citing "someone informed about the company's plans," the publication reports that the new phones will share the same Infinity curved Super AMOLED displays as previous models. However, it is said that the S9 + has 6 GB of RAM, while the no plus will have 4 GB.
What other interesting news is there? For starters, the phones allegedly keep the headphone jack. So that's good. There is also a second rear camera rumored on the 9+.
Notably, Samsung is still scheduled to hold a March event that is expected to serve as the official launch of the phones. However, the informed CES advancement – if true – promises to inject a bit of necessary relevance into the Las Vegas events.
Because although the numerous technological oddities that are exhibited each year at CES are fun, a majority fades into oblivion and has no real impact on the lives of consumers. Samsung's new smartphones would resist that trend, and we could not be happier with that.
