Exclusive: Renders reveal Samsung’s new Galaxy S9 design

Published

on


With Apple’s iPhone X launch now behind us and all of 2017’s top Android smartphones having made their debuts, attention now turns to 2018. We’ve heard rumblings of a number of exciting new smartphones that will launch next year, with a new larger iPhone X successor likely drawing the most interest and appeal. The size of Apple’s tenth-anniversary smartphone is terrific, but the narrower display means there actually isn’t much more space than there is on the iPhone 8 Plus. An “iPhone X Plus,” meanwhile, would have far more display area than any other iPhone on the planet.

Apple’s next-generation iPhone lineup won’t debut until the late summer next year, and there are plenty of exciting new smartphones set to launch long before then. Samsung’s upcoming new Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ are of course the first among them, and Clotheshorse has just confirmed the phones’ updated design.

Rumors surrounding Samsung’s next-generation Galaxy S phone began popping up recently, and we’ve heard a lot of things that are definitely plausible. The phone will reportedly be powered by Samsung’s next-generation Exynos 9810 processor, which has already been announced, or the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 in a few markets including the United States. We’ve also read that the phone will have either 4GB or 6GB of RAM, a dual-lens rear camera and it’ll be pricier than any previous Galaxy S phone at launch.

Clotheshorse has been able to confirm some of that information with our own sources. We’ve also learned other things about the upcoming Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+. For example, we know that Samsung has been working on a new facial recognition system in response to Apple’s TrueDepth solution on the iPhone X. We’ve been told that Samsung initially hoped to include it in the Galaxy S9, but that isn’t likely to happen at this point.

Our sources have also told us a bit about the Galaxy S9’s new design. We can confirm that the handset will indeed include a dual-lens rear camera, and that the lenses will be oriented vertically like the iPhone X rather than horizontally like Samsung’s own Galaxy Note 8. There will also be a fingerprint reader positioned beneath them, and the entire cluster will be centrally located on the back of the phone. This is a huge improvement from the off-center fingerprint scanner on the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy Note 8.

All that info we’ve heard has now been confirmed by a separate source, which has managed to supply us with renders of the new Galaxy S9. The renders were created by a smartphone accessory maker called Ghostek, but they’re based on information from the factory that is building Samsung’s new flagship phones. We’re told by multiples sources that these renders are mostly accurate; one source told us the back is spot-on but the bezel above the phone’s display will be a bit narrower, and the speaker at the top looks a bit different.

Samsung’s Galaxy S9 is one of the most hotly anticipated new smartphones of 2018, and it’s expected to be unveiled in February ahead of a March release.

Kylie Jenner’s Hot Bodyguard Tim Chung Denies He’s Stormi’s Father

Published

Speaking out. Kylie Jenner’s hot bodyguard, Tim Chung, released a statement via Instagram to deny the rumors that he is the father of the reality star’s baby, Stormi Webster.

“I am a very private person and would normally never answer to gossip and stories that are so ridiculous that they are laughable,” he wrote in a post on Saturday, May 12, after online speculation that Jenner’s 3-month-old daughter with Travis Scott looks like Chung. “Out of deep respect for Kylie, Travis, their daughter together and their families, I would like to set the record straight that my interactions with Kylie and her family have been limited in strictly a professional capacity only.”

He added: ”There is no story here and I ask that the media no longer include me in any narrative that is incredibly disrespectful to their family.”

TMZ caught up with Chung on Thursday, May 10, outside a nightclub in West Hollywood and asked him about the paternity rumors. After the question, he smiled, laughed and said: “I can’t answer that.”

The statement comes after the Life of Kylie star’s fans flooded social media with side by side photos of Chung and Stormi to point out the resemblance they saw between them. Some said that they believed the bodyguard, who is also a model, was the child’s real father and not the “Butterfly Effect” rapper, 26.

Fans have also been gushing about the bodyguard’s good looks. One Twitter user wrote: “Whoooo is Kylie Jenner’s bodyguard AND WHY IS HE SO FINE.” Another added: “Sorry I was late to work, I was busy reading about Kylie Jenners bodyguard on twitter.”

The makeup mogul and her boyfriend welcomed Stormi on February 1. After months of keeping a low profile on social media and in the public eye, the reality star announced their baby’s arrival with a post on Instagram. “Pregnancy has been the most beautiful, empowering, and life changing experience I’ve had in my entire life and I’m actually going to miss it,” she wrote on February 4. “I appreciate my friends and especially my family for helping me make this special moment as private as we could. … I’ve never felt love and happiness like this i could burst! Thank you for understanding.”

We’re in the final stretch, Deadpool fans. The movie we’ve all been waiting for will soon be released. That’s right, the sequel is almost upon us, which means it’s time to watch even more hilarious Deadpool shenanigans. After teaming up with Celine Dion for an amazingly hilarious music video, Deadpool now hired David Beckham to promote the upcoming Deadpool 2 movie. Also, to apologize.

In the first Deadpool movie, Deadpool insults the former soccer player in one of the film’s hilarious scenes. “You ever heard David Beckham speak?” Deadpool says. “It’s like he mouth-sexed a can of helium.”

Beckham is watching that particular scene in the new clip when a deluge of Deadpool apologies assault him. First it’s text messages, and when those don’t work, Deadpool himself comes to Beckham’s home.

When all else fails, Ryan Reynolds, in full Deadpool gear and with a soccer t-shirt on top, offers Beckham tickets to the upcoming World Cup. The fact that he’s wearing what appears to be a Canadian soccer team shirt with the name Deadpool and number 2 on it is just glorious.

“I can’t wait to not watch Italy play the Netherlands,” he tells the soccer star, mentioning two countries that recently failed to qualify for this summer’s tournament.

Beckham accepts the apology with a huge twist. In his opinion, Reynolds should really apologize for a slew of movies he made before Deadpool. The whole thing is hilarious, and you can watch it in full below:

‘Avengers: Infinity War’ Sets Record for Biggest Opening Weekend of All Time

Published

The second most expensive film of all-time and the nineteenth entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Avengers: Infinity War, is certainly living up to all the hype. Many publications are reporting that the capstone film pitting the Avengers against Thanos had the biggest opening weekend of all time. Domestically, Infinity War surpassed 2015’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens and its $248 million USD opening by a mere $2 million USD, while its global sales of $630 million USD topples last spring’s The Fate of the Furious and its $542 million USD opening weekend. And that’s without having premiered in China, which is slated for May 11.

According to CinemaBlend.com, Avengers: Infinity War should be the fastest to ever reach $1 billion USD, which is currently set at 12 days by Star Wars: The Force Awakens. However it’s hard to say where the numbers will eventually land on the all-time chart, since Deadpool 2 and Solo: A Star Wars Story will be hitting theaters in the coming weeks.

Speaking of Deadpool, star Ryan Reynolds recently offered a congratulations to his Marvel friends.

 

For those that have seen the film, or for those that don’t mind spoilers, watch the post-credit scene from Avengers: Infinity War.
