Some time early next year, Samsung will take the wraps off the Galaxy S9, its latest flagship. The follow-up to the impressive Galaxy S8 is expected to be more of an incremental upgrade than a revolutionary one, but it will still get some sweet new features. We’ve heard rumors about the phone’s specs, and the latest one continues to complete the picture of what exactly the Galaxy S9 will feature.

In a spec breakdown published by Tencent Digital News, we see some of the major upgrades the S9 will get. The text is in a different language, but two main specs can be made out: battery size and quick charging capacity. The Galaxy S9 will reportedly come with a 3,200mAh battery, a nice increase from the S8’s 3,000mAh battery. Samsung went ultra conservative with the S8 battery after the Note 7 fiasco, so it’s nice of to see a small bump.

By featuring Qualcomm’s QuickCharge 3.0, the Galaxy S9 will be able to take advantage of 12W wireless charging. That will be the fastest wireless charging capacity. The iPhone X, iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus max out at 7W wireless charging.

Aside from that, the Galaxy S9 is expected to retain a similar design as the S8, including the Infinity Display, single (vertical) camera set up, and metal and glass body.

Samsung is expected to announce the Galaxy S9 in February.
