IceUniverse is a tipster with a good track record regarding Samsung’s flagships, so you have to be very attentive when they suggest that the new Samsung Galaxy S9 will come with new AKG headphones” and that it could be a Bluetooth model. The part of AKG is self-explanatory, since the current Galaxy S8 and Note 8 also come with these headphones, but are the version with cables?

Most users agree that they are better than average, since they balance the bass, mid and treble well at normal listening volumes, so they allow conversations by voice with loud and clear sound. Now the filtering indicates that the next generation of Samsung headphones, which has its own line of Bluetooth headsets,  IconX, can also receive the treatment “tuned by AKG”.

With 3.5 mm jack

Logically, by insinuating that the Samsung Galaxy S9 will have Bluetooth headsets inside the box, many Internet users have asked the tipster if the phone could dispense with the 3.5 mm jack following the strategy of other brands such as Apple. Faced with this question, the source points out that all the Samsung Galaxy S9 prototypes seen so far have this audio connector.

If we put both filterings together, we see that it is very strange that Samsung integrates new wireless headphones in the Samsung Galaxy S9 if it maintains the audio jack, so at least one of these two statements, will not come true in the next terminal range high of the brand.

Renewed camera technology

Another detail of the Samsung Galaxy S9 filtered by IceUniverse refers to the fact that the smartphone camera “uses anti-reflective technology with BBAR layers”. Now, what is BBAR? The term refers to the technology, Broadband Anti-Reflection, a type of coating that combats glare and dual images, which is known as the “phantom” effect. The cameras of most phones already have anti-glare coatings, but we could have an improved system that would add quality to the images captured with Samsung’s next flagship.
