We’re less than one month away from the confirmed Galaxy S9 unveiling that will occur on February 25 in Barcelona just ahead of MWC 2018’s beginning. Samsung will headline the show with Unpacked 2018 and is expected to introduce Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+. We’ve seen quite a few leaks and heard quite a few reports, and just this weekend, the official wallpaper was exposed ahead of the phone’s unveil by someone you may know.
Evan Blass, also known as @evleaks over on Twitter, shared what he claims is the official wallpaper, or at least one belonging to the Galaxy S9 models. As you can tell, it’s dark Purple with Pink and Blue crystals. The design kind of reminds us of the rainbow wallpaper that was used on the Galaxy S5 to show off the Super AMOLED screen, and others that came on Galaxy handsets before it. So in other words, it makes sense and probably isn’t a fake since it follows suite. The leaked wallpaper confirms an 18.5:9 aspect ratio for the Galaxy S9, the same that was introduced with last year’s Galaxy S8 flagships. It’s taller but considerably slimmer, and is of a QHD+ resolution.
This is the first and only wallpaper we’ve seen. We first saw it on leaked Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ renders, and now it has been stripped from the phone for anyone to download. The only catch is, it’s not live, meaning it won’t respond to touch or move as you scroll on your device. We expect more leaks here on out.
The wallpaper was designed to fit the screen of the Galaxy S9 so it’ll look best if you have a flagship featuring the new aspect ratio. View and download the wallpaper, below.
