New Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ renders show the phones next to each other

A couple of days ago, Samsung confirmed that it wouldofficially announce its Galaxy S9 family of smartphones on February 25 at MWC2018. For now, the company doesn't want to say much about the S9 series, otherthan the fact that it's going to bring a "reimagined" camera.Nevertheless, leaked renders - and even videos - have been suggesting that the Galaxy S9and Galaxy S9+ won't be too different from the S8 and S8+, at least not when it comesto design.


In case you had any doubts about what the S9 family wouldlook like, we can now take a peek at two renders that seemingly show the S9 andS9+ next to each other - see above. These appear to be press renders (as in:Samsung itself might be using them once the handsets are announced). Since theimages come from Venture Beat and Evan Blass (aka @evleaks - famous forrevealing many, many phones before their official announcements), chances arehigh that this is exactly what the real Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ will look like.


Unfortunately, these new renders only show the Galaxy S9 andS9+ from the front. But we know that their rears is where they should actually differfrom the S8 and S8+, first thanks to a repositioned fingerprint scanner. Anotherthing to note is that the 5.8-inch Galaxy S9 should feature a single rearcamera, while the larger 6.2-inch Galaxy S9+ is expected to offer a dual rearcamera.


In the US, both the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ should be powered byQualcomm's high-end Snapdragon 845 processor. However, it'ssaid that the S9 will offer 4 GB of RAM paired with 64 GB of internal memory,while the S9+ could benefit from having 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal memory.


Samsung might start selling the Galaxy S9 and S9+ on March16, or at least that's what the date seen on the phones' home screens issuggesting. These may become the most expensive Galaxy S phones to date, although, for now, exact prices can not be confirmed.

I thought it will be nearly bezel-less. Its just the opposite.

Why would Samsung make the size bezels thicker? If anything, they would reduce them. So many things about these renders are just off to me. EVleaks has been wrong before, so I'm gonna wait till we're seeing other credible leaked renders remaining the same closer to launch date, before making my final verdict. But as of now...I am not a fan. Side bezels being that thick make it look way too Pixel 2 XL-ish.

I really don't like it at all. It looks like a bukkake among LG G6, LG V30, Samsung S8/S8+ and Samsung A8. They are awful. I'm sorry Samsung, Xiaomi Mi Mix3 will be my future phone.

All the bezels are bigger than they should be. I hope this isn't the final design.

I like the design in the front. The back is another story.

Something is off with the design. I'm not a fan of the borders. They nailed it better on the S8 or even the Note 8. Probably this is the S9 active versions... or maybe not.

Anyone who watched the leaked video or even held an S8 will easily tell that they're fake. The bottom bezel is the same as that of the S8, and the forehead and side bezels are bigger. And that's not what the leaked video showed, plus you don't need to watch the video to realize how it doesn't make sense for Samsung to increase all four bezels when they were one of the 1st to push towards this trend.

There's a good chance these are it. Evan Blass leaks which are pretty credible, then you got theat latest video leak showing the keyboard input responsiveness matching Blass's leak. The side bezels in that leak was pretty noticeable. I gotta admit, it's not the best front design when compared to the S8 and S8+, even with the smaller top ans even smaller bottom bezels, but if this new form factor for Samsung proves to play well with screen protectors in general, it might work out. I mean even with the s8, if you have a case with a lip that goes up to where the screen bezel meet, it would look similar to this leak

No no no Samsung unless the better sized S9 has dual camera & 6gb ram you can take a run & jump this year.

The A8 looks much 1000 times better than your amusing iPhone x.

You wish as I have both the S8 and iPhone X. I would have to strongly disagree.

These are fake. The side bezels won't be that thick.

He usually leak the official image of the phones , not this time , it's clearly a poorly done render

Has he ever been incorrect? These renders are poorly done to say the least.

He was incorrect about the HTC One M9...that's an infamous one that most people know about.

We're moving towards a future where nobody is going to be able to tell which phone you've got by just looking at the front of it. Not sure if that's a good thing or not, but it's definitely a possibility.

You're right, just look at the plus its Pixel 2 XL in disguise.
