Galaxy S9 could pair with this rebooted Samsung accessory

Samsung Galaxy S9 bucks an unwelcome trend and leaves the headphone jack intact

The two phones will be unviled at the company's Galaxy Unpacked 2018 event and Samsung has already sent out invites for the same.

While all of Samsung's previous flagship releases have included the headphone jack, its inclusion in the Galaxy S9 was subject to doubts, as the upcoming phone is set to compete against the likes of the iPhone X, Google Pixel 2, and Huawei Mate 10 Pro, all of which are doing just fine without the aging hardware.

The new flagship devices from the manufacturer of Galaxy Note series device sports an authentic design and comes with newer improvements. Roland Quandt has revealed a bevy of what are purportedly official Samsung Galaxy S9 cases, and there are some surprises in the mix. However, by a stroke of luck, some users in Vietnam (via SamMobile) began receiving the Android Oreo update on their Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge. A Silicone Cover, meanwhile, promises a "silky and soft-touch finish" instead, while an Alcantara Cover claims to be even more "luxurious" still.

The Samsung Hyperknit cover. With a see-through top cover, you can view the clock and notifications without opening the front cover.

As you'd expect, each of the different families of cover are being offered in a variety of colors, too. It seems likely that the official Galaxy S9 cases will follow a similar pattern.

As far as the memory configuration is concerned, the standard Galaxy S9 will be offered in two options 4GB RAM+64GB storage and 4GB RAM and 128GB storage, whereas the bigger screen version Galaxy S9+ will be available in 6GB RAM+64GB storage, 6GB RAM+128GB storage and 6GB RAM+256GB models in major markets across the world. Although Samsung gave a wired AKG earphone bundled along with the Galaxy S8 handsets last year, we are not yet sure if the case will remain the same this year as well.
