XDA Developers says the a in astarqlte refers to the Active model while q indicates that the handset would run Qualcomm's Snapdragon chipset. The listing also shows the images of the batteries of both the smartphones as well. Bixby also gets some updates, if anyone actually cares. Some reports are coming that it would be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC in USA and China, and a Samsung Exynos 9810 SoC in other worldwide markets (including India).
Take the pic of the swinging child, for instance, Samsung appears to be showcasing the quality of the Galaxy S9 camera's motion detection and fast autofocus. But it is unlikely to have curved edges on the sides to enhance durability. According to the renders seen on the website, the design of the Galaxy S9 is similar to last year's Galaxy S8. Samsung tends to include a bigger battery in the Active variants compared to the regular Galaxy S device. Also, the larger Galaxy S9 Plus would feature a vertically-aligned dual camera module on the rear panel.
Meanwhile, a support page for Samsung Galaxy S9 was made live in Germany. Based on the build configuration, it may confirm the previous leaks where the fingerprint scanner is set to be located below the camera module.
