Just a few days ago we told you that the Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9 + would be presented at the MWC 2018 in Barcelona, in just over a month. Now we have known more data of the Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9 +, that yes, minors, in its passage by the FCC, the North American certification that anticipates a near launch.
Little we have left to know already the Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9 + with leaks as seen yesterday, and that showed us all the features of both terminals, except for its processor and battery, in the box of the phone itself. Even revealing an opening for his camera without precedents.
Data of the Samsung Galaxy S9 in the FCC
As you know, as in the Chinese TENAA, in North America the products must pass the FCC certification before being marketed, and at that point is the Samsung Galaxy S9. Although we can not expect details about the datasheet, we could see other data from the Samsung Galaxy S9 that reveal details about the LTE bands and the model of each of the devices. As you know, the Samsung Galaxy S9 that will be sold in the United States will be slightly different from the one in Europe.
In this step by the FCC, we have seen the models for this market, the SM-G960U, and SM-G965U, which are specific to this market. As well as the SM-G960U1, which will be free model. The bands that have been tested in these new Samsung Galaxy S9 have been LTE 2, 4, 5, 12, 13, 14, 17, 25, 26, 29, 30, 66, 71, and 41. A very basic scheme shows where the label of this FCC certification will be printed. Without a doubt, a step by the FCC that especially confirms us is the launch as much in a couple of months of the new terminals, a couple of weeks after its presentation in Barcelona.
Remember that these models for the North American market of Samsung Galaxy S9 for the FCC will have the Snapdragon 845 processor and that usually in Europe we enjoy the version with Exynos processor, which this year will be the new Exynos 9810. One of the data that most not surprising yesterday of the new terminals are that they will have a focal aperture in their camera only f / 1.5, never seen until now in the West, yes in Asia with the Samsung W2018 shell. In short, it burns one more stage in the launch of Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9 + that tells us that the advance of Samsung on its presentation in Barcelona is confirmed again after passing through this certification.
