New Samsung Galaxy S9 pictures leak: sleek in black, fingerprint moved within easier reach


Just last week, we saw leaked renders of the Samsung Galaxy S9+, and today, we get to see high-resolution, detailed leaked renders of the smaller Galaxy S9. The leak comes courtesy of @onLeaks, a leakster with a nearly spotless track record. Note that these are not actual photographs of the device, but generated renders.

The Galaxy S9 depicted here retains a mostly similar design to its predecessor, the Galaxy S8. It has an identical full-screen front with a very tiny top and bottom bezel, but the biggest change is on the back with the fingerprint scanner now moved below the camera, in a convenient central position. The phone will keep the convenient headphone jack on the bottom, and it appears to have a bottom-firing speaker as well. The Bixby button on the left side also remains there. Unlike its bigger Galaxy S9+ sibling, the Galaxy S9 will not have a dual rear camera system, according to this leak.

Fancy features like the in-screen optical fingerprint scanner recently announced by Synaptics are not likely to be present on the S9.

A recent report from Bloomberg confirmed that the Galaxy S9 series will have a nearly identical design with the biggest improvement coming in the camera department. It also highlights expectations that Samsung will introduce the new phones in February and could launch them in March, a full month ahead of its traditional schedule.
