The Galaxy S9’s Dex Pad launches May 13 for $99.99

By Ron Amadeo

Hot off the launch of the Galaxy S9 last month, Samsung is about to release one of the device’s main accessories, the Samsung Dex Pad. Plug your flagship Samsung smartphone into this little dock, then plug in a monitor, mouse, and keyboard, and you’ll have a full-blown desktop OS interface powered just by your phone. Preorders are open today on Samsung.com, and the device ships May 13. Starting today, Samsung is also offering a free Dex Pad to anyone who buys a Galaxy S9 or S9+ from Samsung.com.

Samsung Dex runs the Android OS you know and love but reworked into a desktop form factor with a windowed multitasking interface. The Dex Pad requires a USB-C equipped Samsung device (so a Galaxy S8, Note 8, or S9) with Android 8.0. The dock has two USB A ports (typically for a mouse and keyboard), HDMI for the monitor, and USB-C for power. Running a desktop interface can be tough on a phone’s processor, so the Dex Pad also has a fan to help everything run a bit cooler and faster.

By Tim

Not much to talk about here, it appears to just be an S8 with a makeover.

In late-breaking photo leak, Galaxy S9 bares it all

By Ron Amadeo

WinFuture

German site WinFuture has given us a ton more Galaxy S9 pictures to admire before the phone’s launch next week. The pictures show everything we’ve been expecting: a phone that looks a lot like the existing Galaxy S8 but with a revised camera and fingerprint setup on the back.

Besides offering the most complete look yet at Samsung’s next flagship, these pictures shoot down an odd regression shown in the earliest Galaxy S9 leaks. The early pictures shared by VentureBeat showed a Galaxy S9 with thicker side bezels than the Galaxy S8, and now it seems those were not accurate. These pictures show a design that seems to have the same slim side bezels as the Galaxy S8, which, as usual, will curve into the phone body.

Here’s our first clear look at the Samsung Galaxy S9

By Ron Amadeo

VentureBeat

VentureBeat’s Evan Blass is back with another phone leak. This time it’s the Samsung Galaxy S9, which has just had its launch event announced for February 25.

As expected, this year’s iteration looks a lot like the Galaxy S8. Samsung did a major redesign last year, so we were expecting a phone that more or less looks the same. It’s still a phone that is nearly all-screen with round corners, a battery of sensors at the top for Iris scanning, and a Bixby button for launching Samsung’s horrible voice assistant. The main addition for 2018 is a new camera, which is expected to have a variable aperture.

Samsung announces the Galaxy S9 launch, teases “reimagined” camera

By Ron Amadeo

Enlarge

Samsung just sent out invites for the announcement of its next flagship smartphone. The Galaxy S9 will debut February 25 at Mobile World Congress. The show starts at 6pm CET (Noon ET, 9am PT).

The one piece of information the teaser gives us is that the camera is “reimagined.” This is most likely a reference to the variable aperture camera that Samsung is already shipping on the W2018 flip phone. Just like a real camera, this has a set of (very small) aperture blades that open and close with the changing light levels. In ideal lighting, the W2018 uses an f/2.4 aperture, but it can switch to f/1.5 if it needs to pull in more light. If you haven’t seen it in action, this gif of the W2018 camera is a must see.

Other than the fancy camera, the Galaxy S9 is expected to look a lot like the Galaxy S8. The Galaxy S8 was a total overhaul last year, and Samsung rarely (never?) does back-to-back redesigns. The camera information—which now looks pretty legit—came from a Reddit box leak. The other new feature on the box? Stereo speakers. The earpiece will probably double as a second speaker, with the usual bottom firing speaker playing along with it. Of course there will also be a spec bump, with the Snapdragon 845 expected to ship in the US version.
