Samsung Galaxy S9 images and specs leak ahead of unveiling!

Samsung Galaxy S9 images leak ahead of unveiling

VentureBeat claims the Galaxy S9 will include a 5.8-inch display and be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 in the US, with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. The larger S9+ is said to have a 6.2-inch display, and 6GB of RAM with 128GB of storage. Both models appear to be iterative hardware updates over the existing S8. Samsung’s camera improvements reportedly include variable aperture on the primary 12-megapixel camera, allowing it to switch between f/2.4 and f/1.5.
While VentureBeat hasn’t supplied pictures of the rear of the S9, the publication does claim the fingerprint sensor will be vertically aligned with the camera, instead of sitting beside it (like on the S8). This improvement means the fingerprint reader will be located beneath the camera, in a more natural position that should be easier to locate. This placement aligns with some videos that claim to be dummy units of the Galaxy S9.


More Galaxy S9 images leak, showing off redesigned fingerprint reader and lilac color

Samsung is expected to announce the Galaxy S9 in a few weeks at Mobile World Congress on February 25th, and the latest leak from Evan Blass on Twitter is giving us our best look at the phone yet. Along with a first glimpse at a new Lilac Purple color, the images give us a good look at the redesigned fingerprint reader that places it below the camera sensor, one of the major flaws of the S8.
Also seen in the new picture is the two-camera module that the larger S9 Plus will have, which looks to be a vertically oriented module similar to the iPhone X. Samsung’s tease highlighted that the devices would offer improvements to the camera, but we’ll have to wait and see what they’ve got up their sleeve beyond the usual annual upgrades.
The S9 will launch in four colors: Midnight Black, Lilac Purple, Titanium Gray, and Coral Blue, although its unclear if all four of those colors will be available in all regions.
