We’re still a few months out from the time of year Samsung tends to announce its Galaxy S flagship smartphone, but that hasn’t stopped leakers. An early leak shows what could be the Galaxy S9, in a Red and Black silicone case.
Samsung’s Galaxy S9 is expected to be one of the first major smartphone releases of 2018, and an image from BGR shows an early glimpse at what the upcoming device could look like from several angles.
The render images pictured above appear to contain the Galaxy S9 in a Ghostek case. Up front we see Samsung’s 18.5:9 Infinity Display, which is good news. The Bixby hardware key is present alongside volume controls, which appear to have shrunken down in size. There’s a cut out for two ports at the bottom, a USB Type-C charging port and 3.5mm headphone jack. And on the rear, boy, there are some shifts.
The most notable side of the device is the device’s rear because there seem to be a lot of changes going on. First off, there are dual cameras, one placed on top of the other, interesting. Secondly, the heart rate sensor is no longer beside the camera, it’s below it. And third, the misplaced fingerprint scanner has moved, but is not exactly favorable. It’s centered now, just below the heart rate sensor, but still is crammed up against it with that weird oval-shaped design. There’s also Samsung branding.
It’s early, so take this leak with a grain of salt. What’s pictured may not be the real deal, and even if it is, there’s still time for things to change.
