Samsung Galaxy S9, S9+ Leaked Renders Show A Modest Design Update

Here is the first clear look at Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ showing up in the allegedly leaked renders, featuring thicker bezels than the S8 series. Everything shown is some sort of concept designs.

Have a look at the upcoming smartphone duo from the front. As we are reaching that time when iPhone X hype is behind us and we can finally look forward to welcoming to the market what is arguably be the best Android smartphones of 2018.

In another news, we will talk about how slow iPhone X sales damaged Samsung OLED displays proportion. Samsung has officially announced via invitation that it will be introducing Galaxy S9 and S9+ at the opening keynote of this year’s Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona. Now, we can get a glimpse of it along with a sort of additional information.

If these pics are accurate, Samsung isn’t radically changing the Galaxy S8’s great design or radically changing the design language for their successors. According to the popular leaker Evan Blass, who obtained images of the front of the Galaxy S9 and S9+, at first glance they look very similar to last year’s models.

First and foremost, what actually the Galaxy S9 and S9+ will look like in the included renders, from the front anyway. Renders have been shown two devices, which are basically identical from a product design perspective and differ solely in size. With the S9 coming with a 5.8-inch display and the S9+ has a 6.2-inch panel. But Samsung has introduced a number of notable changes that will make sure seriously consider purchasing the larger S9+ over the 5.8-inch model.

Both the devices ship with the same processor configuration. S9 and S9+ will certainly get a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 in the United States and China and a Samsung Exynos 9810 wherever the device is sold in the rest of the world outside of those two huge markets. And of course, the smaller 5.8-inch model will ship with an internal 4GB of RAM and an accompanying 64GB of internal storage space.

The aforementioned would be one of the first differences when S9+ is concerned with Samsung opting to sell that device with an upgraded 6GB of RAM and a boosting 128GB of storage capacity. Those specs mean that the ‘Plus’ variant or the larger S9+ will definitely appeal more to be power-hungry individual who requires a lot of storage.

But, there are a few small differences we can find here and there. Perhaps the most notable are the many cameras and sensors above the S9’s screen. Samsung also having a more advanced form of face-powered unlock and authentication than they’ve had thus far. No surprise if these sensors and camera module helped the S9 take front-facing selfies with a portrait effect, like the Pixel 2 and the iPhone X can.

While the bezels around the screen on both the S9 and S9+ strangely look much larger than those found in the S8. It doesn’t quite seem that Samsung made a big deal out of how the S8’s screen curves over the edge of the phone, which the same thing is happening here. Again, this is just a single leaked image – we’d be surprised if Samsung changed away from the curved edge screen here. Later we can imagine that.

However, Samsung’s official invitation didn’t give much away but it did tell invitees, and consumers around the world, that this release would eventually focus on camera improvements, from a hardware and software perspective. Two individuals who are glad to have an understanding of the devices have suggested that both S9 and S9+ will have motion-detected, super slow-mo video capture as well as variable aperture capabilities on the rear-facing camera.

For the Galaxy S9+, Samsung has fixed on a second 12MP system with a standard slapped aperture of F/1.5. Fortunately, we won’t have to wait long to find out what’s new here. As for design, shown in the renders above, the design language seems very familiar, it seems like S9 series has more bezels than S8 series, specifically on the sides and on the top. The top, actually, also has more sensors possibly for Samsung’s Face ID competitor to iPhone X.

Samsung will indeed announce both devices at the beginning of MWC on February 25th with sales expected on or around March 16, 2018. In the meantime, we’re guessing this is just the first of more forthcoming leaks of Samsung’s next flagship phone. Stay tuned for more updates!
