The Galaxy S9 Plus is expected to be a physically larger version of the Galaxy S9, packing a bigger screen and a bigger battery. Chances are the S9 Plus 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 Plus 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 Plus announced alongside the Galaxy S9 in 2018's first quarter.
