This deal will cost you £1075 over the course of two years - more than the above option but you'll be getting a lot more data and you'll only be tied into a SIM only contract for 12 months rather than 24. For the S9 Plus, Samsung's said to up the game with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage.

As for storage, both phones will have 64GB, with mcroSD expansion up to 400GB.

Screen: Just like the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+, the Galaxy S9 and the Galaxy S9+ will come with Samsung's proprietary Infinity display. The Galaxy S8 launched at £690 in the UK. Screen size will remain the same as well, which means while the Galaxy S9 will have a 5.8-inch screen, the Galaxy S9+ will come with a 6.2-inch display. The rear panel will not be exactly identical either. The specifications of the phone uncannily resemble those of Samsung Galaxy J3, making it a possibility that the device in question might be the next in line to grace Samsung's J series, by being the much in talks, Galaxy J4.

We think we can work it out by cross referencing the mobile phone deals market today with the launch prices of Galaxy S8 deals a year ago, factoring in the state of the market and recent price increases. It will go on sale from March 2018. We know already that the rear-facing camera on the Galaxy S9 will be variable aperture. It will still shoot dual-pixel 12-megapixel photos - assisted by OIS.

On the software side, Korean websiteET News reported last week that Samsung will take a page out of Apple's playbook and introduce its own version of "Animoji" (or animated emoji) that use the phone's front camera and sensor to digitally animate the emoji based on your facial reactions.

Quandt also offered up some of the promotional material for the Galaxy S9 lineup. The second 12MP lens will have a set aperture of f/2.4. Android 8.0 Oreo will likely come installed out of the box. It will be fueled by a 3,000mAh battery that will be enabled with support for fast charging and wireless charging. Thanks to serial leaker Evan Blass, we even know what both phones look like. The design has been rumored to be very similar, with the only noticeable changes being on the back of the smartphone. Initial reactions to the Android-powered Galaxy S8 are about its head-turning physical design, whereas the iPhone 8 boasts of its A11 Bionic Chip.

In the meantime, further reports further tease that the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 will be a big release, as it might feature a foldable display that the tech giant's president has already teased in a statement.
