Galaxy S9 to use Substrate-like PCB to fit larger battery

Galaxy S9 to use Substrate-like PCB to fit larger battery

Smartphones are getting more and more powerful each year and consumers have expected as much from high-end models year after year. The actual hardware components used in these smartphones, however, have a harder time catching up to expectations. Batteries, most especially, haven’t changed that much in the past decade or so and the only solution has been to just use larger and larger batteries while also trying to be more efficient in their use. Samsung may have a solution for the former by supposedly employing Substrate-like PCB, or SLP, for the Galaxy S9 next year, which would allow Samsung to shrink the main board and make room for a larger battery.

Galaxy S6: what we’ve heard (and want to see) ahead of MWC 2015

Now that we’ve had a good look at what the Galaxy S6 from Samsung might end up looking like, we’re starting to wonder what the device will be as a whole. Is it really going to have those ultra-slim bezels we saw in the leaked pic, or was that a really good fake? Do the benchmarks hint at the real internals, or just some basic test specs? We don’t know, and likely won’t until MWC when Samsung is expected to roll the phone out, but it’s looking good, Samsung fans.

Galaxy S6 might be released earlier than expected

Samsung releases a lot of devices — that much is certain. Each year, it seems they push out dozens of smartphones, and we’re not even going to try and discern how many tablets there are from Samsung right now. Even with so many (often decent if not really good) devices from Samsung, their flagships still loom large. The Galaxy S5 is nearing it’s life cycle as a flagship device, which has given way to rampant Galaxy S6 speculation and rumors. This time, we’re talking release date.
