The leaks and reports regarding the Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ are flooding in, while a report suggested its camera specs, the other source confirmed the presence of an AI chip on Samsung’s upcoming flagships. Now, another report has popped out in the open which provides an idea of how Samsung is making changes in design to get benefits in terms of thickness, weight, and have more space on the inside. As per the report, there are two changes that Samsung made to make the Galaxy S9 the first one to have such features.
As per the recent report by ET News, the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ will pack SLP (Substrate Like PCB) mainboards. This is a circuit miniaturisation technique, which Apple used for the first time on its iPhone X and now, Samsung will use the same technique to free up more space inside the chassis, which may enable it to pack a bigger battery inside- a much-needed step!
But Samsung may also use it for better cooling and airflow. This may be the performance-based approach as it will help the Galaxy S9 and S9+ operate at its maximum potential while producing lesser heat. However, this might not be the perfect news for those in the US, as SLP will only be used in Exynos versions of the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+.
So, this might be another negative aspect of the Galaxy S9 and S9+ in the US where it will ship with Qualcomm Snapdragon 845. It was confirmed earlier as well that the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 lacks a few more things when compared to the Exynos 9810 which will be used in the Samsung’s flagship, in the markets other than the US.
Apart from this, we may see a new display technology called as Y-OCTA (Youm On-Cell Touch AMOLED) which will allow Samsung to place the touch sensor directly on the flexible OLED layer. This will further reduce the thickness and weight of the phone and it is said that it can also make the display even more responsive while using.
These changes made will surely impact the heavy-users, and perfection freaks. But, the Galaxy S9 and S9+ will look almost the same as previous year’s Galaxy S8 and S8+, with some added benefits and advantages.
