While the user confirms that the dual lens camera is reserved for the bigger Galaxy S9+, the single lens camera on the Galaxy S9 proved fantastic in its dramatically improved quality and 4K video support at higher frame rates. The bottom bezel has also been reduced a bit and based on the leaked images, the top and bottom bezels aren't symmetrical anymore. Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ are IP68 certified and will have MicroSD card slot for expanding the storage upto 400GB. The accuracy of the listings remains somewhat dubious as the page describing the Galaxy S9 Plus claims it will be equipped with 4GB of RAM, whereas almost every credible leak, rumor, and report that emerged online in previous weeks states the 6.2-inch phablet will have 6GB of RAM and only its smaller counterpart is expected to retain the memory configuration of the Galaxy S8 lineup. Even if the company does have one in the pipeline, it may not necessarily be launched in Barcelona. The Galaxy S9 will have a similar design that is expected to match the sizes of the S8 and S8+ and come with curved edges, an elongated screen with rounded corners, metal edges and glass front and back, according to several well placed sources talking to the Guardian. Samsung seemingly took note and moved the fingerprint scanner's position to the centre, right below the camera. We know already that the rear-facing camera on the Galaxy S9 will be variable aperture. For its part, the front camera on the Galaxy A8+ is one of its best features, and Live Focus does a great job in terms of creating a bokeh effect for shots. Both smartphones will reportedly have 8-megapixel selfie cams with autofocus and f/1.7 apertures. The Galaxy Tab S4 is also likely to be unveiled at the event.

These cameras will also support "Super Slow Mo" recording which is described as a 480 Hz slow-motion 720p video. Thanks to the bright f/1.5 aperture lens, both the smartphones should be able to deliver superior low-light performance compared to all previous Galaxy smartphones. The S9 will be also equipped with AKG tuned stereo speakers that will produce surround-sound effect.

Source tells Global PCs will quash Brown's bid for leader
Brown said on Facebook yesterday that he is suing the broadcaster over its reporting of what he alleges are false accusations. Brown was notified that he has been removed from the PC caucus effective immediately", said the statement.

This will naturally have a knock-on effect on the design of the Galaxy S9, and will probably prompt Apple to respond directly as well.

Both phones will be the first to utilize Qualcomm's latest Snapdragon 845 processors, which promise zippier power and longer battery life.
