How many of you are excited about the next Samsung Galaxy S9? If Samsung sticks to its schedule, we might get our first official glance at the smartphone in the first quadrant of 2018.
But that is not stopping leaks from happening. And this time we have our first look at the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S9, which in all probability will arrive in February or March next year.
BGR has been able to dig up some details on the Galaxy S9. And this includes a render of the phone that the website can confirm is almost accurate. The image render shows the device inside a transparent cover case.
The image shows that the Galaxy S9 smartphone may appear similar to this year’s Galaxy S8. Slight bezels on top and bottom are still present.
But what seems like the biggest change is the vertical alignment of the rear cameras and fingerprint sensor.
Samsung has listened to its fans and has changed the position of the fingerprint scanner. The rear camera module has been repositioned in a vertical manner. This means the two camera lenses are above the fingerprint scanner, which in turn means that the fingerprint scanner is now placed centrally.
This render has been provided to BGR by Ghostek and is confirmed from multiple sources, says the website.
Other expected features of the Galaxy S9
The upcoming smartphone will probably feature the newest chipset from Samsung, the Exynos 9810 processor or the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845. Like it has always been the case, the Snapdragon version will be exclusive to some part of the world like the US and European countries.
Apart from the processor, Samsung will possibly include either 4GB or 8GB RAM and dual cameras on the rear as well. There are rumours that Samsung is developing a FaceID technology to make the facial recognition a part of the smartphone.
