The Samsung Galaxy S9 is only a few short months away and we’re getting more leaks by the day. We recently told you about rumors the fingerprint scanner could be moving under the display and its possible appearance at CES in Las Vegas next month. If you want to catch up on all of the rumors, head over to our post here.
The newest leak comes in the form of factory CAD renders and a 360-degree video. The video and renders come from 91mobiles.com and OnLeaks.
As you can see, the Samsung Galaxy S9 looks basically identical to its predecessor, the Samsung Galaxy S8. According to the leak, the bottom bezel is slated to be 0.1 mm slimmer than the S8 and the display will be 5.65-inches with rounded corners. The dimensions of the phone are allegedly 147.6 x 68.7 x 8.4 mm.
The sides of the device still house the power, volume, and Bixby buttons in a familiar formation and the USB Type-C port and 3.5 mm headphone jack sit at the bottom. The real changes are on the back of the device. Samsung caught a ton of flack for the placement of the fingerprint sensor on the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus. It looks like they were listening because it is now under the camera sensor instead of next to it. The flash and heartbeat sensor still sits to the right.
These renders show us what’s changing and what isn’t. The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 was the first Samsung flagship to have a dual-camera setup. According to these renders, the Galaxy S9 will not follow in its footsteps. There is a single camera module to the north of the fingerprint scanner, not a dual-camera module.
Samsung always packs its devices with fantastic specs and there’s little reason to doubt the Galaxy S9 will be any different. We expect to see Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 processor, and at least 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage.
How do you think the phone looks? Are these changes enough to get you to upgrade?
