Leaked Samsung Galaxy S9+ renders reveal dual rear camera, 6.1-inch screen


Shortly after seeing a set of renders showing what's likely the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S9, we can now take a look at similar renders presenting the larger variant of Samsung's next flagship phone - the Galaxy S9+.



 



Revealed by MySmartPrice and @OnLeaks (who has a great track record when it comes to info about unannounced phones), these new Galaxy S9+ renders seemingly confirm the fact that Samsung is differentiating its two next-gen phones by more than just their size. While the Galaxy S9 reportedly features a single rear camera, the larger Galaxy S9+ should come with a dual rear camera - positioned vertically, not horizontally as on the Galaxy Note 8.



 



Dual main camera aside, the Samsung Galaxy S9+ resembles the S9 a lot, thus it's going to have a similarly-placed rear fingerprint scanner (below its camera). Its internals should be alike, too, including Qualcomm's mighty Snapdragon 845 processor.



 



Interestingly, it's said that the Galaxy S9+ sports a 6.1-inch display - that's 0.1 inches smaller than the 6.2-inch screen of this year's Galaxy S8+. The new phone should measure 157.7 x 73.8 x 8.5 mm - if that's the case, it's not as tall as the Galaxy S8+ (159.5 x 73.4 x 8.1 mm), instead being a bit wider and thicker. Hopefully, this means Samsung can pack a larger battery inside.



 



With the Galaxy S9+ and S9, Samsung seems to be doing what Apple does with its iPhone and iPhone Plus models, offering an enhanced camera experience on the larger handset. This wasn't the case with previous Galaxy flagships, and, in fact, the S9+ will become the very first Galaxy S model to feature a dual rear camera.



 



Samsung will almost certainly announce the Galaxy S9+ and Galaxy S9 in the coming months, possibly at MWC 2018 (February 28 - March 1). Excited?

Sweet looking device.. Especially the GSC plus. Btw I'm sure samsung is re-using this design because they might have something big in store for the GS10/X.

You are obviously a paid Sammy rep or a Sammy fanboy. Based on the fact not much has changed in this render compared to the S8, an iPhone X user would have just bought that. Next time you try to troll, don't make it so obvious.

I don't think I said please believe me... The iPhone X is okay at best except for the camera, it is pretty good.

I don't think people asked you to say something about iPhone X yet you say something about iphone X ...... No one believes the crap you say because everyone here knows that you are a samsung's Bi*c*.

Shutter can deal with f1.4 for photos. Videos will be awful. Too bright, far from what we see. I hope they give up on warm colors on auto mode.

If true renders WHAT IS WRONG with Samsung the finger print sensor still to close to the camera there needs to be atleast 4mm more room between them both or smudge the camera glass. Samsung is going down in my opinion. LG or Nokia 9.

"Samsung is going down in my opinion. LG or Nokia 9." LMAO! Okay. All because of how 'close' the FPS is to the camera? It's called muscle memory. People got used to the current set up & it's more outta pave than this leaked image.

It's as close to the lens as the one on the Mate 10 Pro. It's not even that close, it just looks closer because it's under the same housing as the camera lenses. And yeah, you're correct, LG and Nokia are taking over, I also heard that Blu are projected to beat both Apple and Samsung combined in sales.

If it has a decent quality DAC then I might consider upgrading from my XZ Premium.

Dont do this mistake, even Z2 has better audio then Samsung flagships.

19. Jacksie66 unregistered

I agree. Had an s7 edge Exynos here in Ireland. Hated the audio quality. Sold it for a v20 which sounded awesome but the phone had horrible bugs. Have an XZ premium since June and love the audio quality, especially with LDAC over Bluetooth on my Mdr-1000x.

WTF? If you use bluetooth then the DAC in the phone has zero functionality.

That's not correct. The XZ Premium supports Hi-Res audio even over Bluetooth. If you get the right pair of headphones, then you will take full advantage of this. Not just that, I believe that Sony using some magical software of theirs, can upscale even songs found on streaming apps to Hi-Res audio. Not 100% about this one, but as I remember when I was looking into buying it, that this was one of the features.

Yes... Xperia can upscale even low quality mp3 to hi-res. If you use their default music app.

or the camera doesnt have to be in the center, so the FPS can be well placed..the problem solved.

S8 with thinner bezels and the 845 chip?

So the big question, who have that underscreen fps, because obviously it wasn't Samsung.

Probably the Note 9 or the V40.

Yawn... Disappointed yet again. This pretty much confirms that Note 9 will just be an S9+ with S Pen which already would be a minor upgrade over S8+ which means Note 9 would be more like Note 8s. More sad news is that Samsung won’t be the first manufacturer to introduce in-display FPS so it won’t be its signature feature. A Chinese brand like Oppo might steal all the hype of in-display FPS from Samsung.

"This pretty much confirms that Note 9 will just be an S9+ with S Pen which already would be a minor upgrade over S8+..." Yet another imbecile that doesn't know the difference between the Note & the S. It's far more than an S with a pen. There have been plenty of complaints about the lag in the S8/+, even after it came out. There have been none about the Note. That alone sets it apart. Do your research before making an idiotic comment.

Any phone over $600 basically shouldn’t have lag. And even Note 8 performance is nowhere near smooth as the Pixel or iPhone. You Samsung fanboys just don’t want to admit that.
