As the name implies, the Galaxy S9+ is expected to be a physically larger version of the Galaxy S9, packing a bigger screen and a bigger battery. Chances are the S9+ will be equipped with a camera very similar to the Note 8's, enabling 2X optical zoom and artistic background blur effects. Furthermore, Samsung is expected to use a next-generation system chip that is more powerful, yet more efficient than the one inside the Galaxy S8. On the outside, the Samsung Galaxy S9+ is likely to look very similar to the S8 Plus - made of metal and glass curving around the edges, with minimum bezels surrounding its Infinity display. We should see the Galaxy S9+ announced alongside the Galaxy S9 in 2018's first quarter.
