You’re going to see dozens of articles comparing the Galaxy S9 lineup with smartphones from other manufacturers, but how do the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Edge stack up against each other?
Let’s cover the key differences that’ll be found between the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Edge below.
To start, we’ll cover the internal hardware. It’s very likely that the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Edge will have identical hardware, with one exception. The battery capacity on the Galaxy S9 Edge is expected to be larger than the Galaxy S9 battery size. This is simply because the Galaxy S9 Edge will be larger and have a larger display, so more battery life will be important to power it up.
Speaking of displays, it might not just be the display size that’ll be different. Whilst it’s true that Samsung usually opts for a 5.1 inch display on the Galaxy S9 and a 5.5 inch on the Galaxy S9 Edge, we may see Samsung adopt different resolutions for each device. For example, the Galaxy S9 Edge may have a 4K display, suitable for power users and content consumers, whilst the Galaxy S9 will have a great 2K display that’ll be useful for everything but 4K-exclusive content.
The Galaxy S9 Edge will also have a number of exclusive software features – the majority of the Galaxy Edge Feeds and Galaxy Edge panel features will be exclusive to the Galaxy S9 Edge. Besides the Edge features, however, we imagine all of the other software features will remain the same throughout each.
All of this information will most likely remain true unless Samsung decide to remove the standard Galaxy S9 altogether and put their focus on a worldwide Galaxy S9 Edge release instead.
With these details in mind, which of the two Galaxy handsets would you prefer?
