Real deal Galaxy S9 and S9+ smile for the camera



After seeing the Galaxy S9 in working condition the other day, straight out of the Vietnam factory that makes the models destined for US carriers, today Samsung's upcoming flagships leak in a bit more detail, including the promo video for their enterprise features you see above.

From the front, they look almost identical to the Galaxy S8, at least we can't really tell much of a difference, or if the bezels are indeed thinner than the S8 and S8+ like the rumors suggested. Flip these puppies over, though, and quite a different picture is painted, and we don't mean the new lilac and what seems to be a darker gray, colors.

The S9+ indeed sports a dual camera set on the back, unlike the single lens shooter on the S9, which might explain why the alleged price differential between the two is said to be larger than what the gap between the S8 and S8+ was at launch. In another new development that has been widely speculated on already, the fingerprint scanner has been moved from where it is on the S8/+, to a bit more logical place beneath the camera, though it still seems that lens smudges might be an issue until one gets used to the new position.

As for the software, the pictures don't really tell much, but it looks like a standard run-of-the-mill Samsung Experience UI, regardless of the version. Still, there is one thing that catches attention, and it is an app called AR Emoji, which sounds suspiciously like the rumored "3D Emoji" the S9 and S9+ were supposed to have, or digital avatars that you can command with facial expressions.

In any case, there's no point in guessing what it is, as all will be revealed to a great fanfare tomorrow, and we will be relaying all the info to you live as soon as we get it from Samsung's announcers.

I want the blue one ! But I won't buy another phone until there is a significant new update. And no, the 20% increase in performance and camera quality is just not enough anymore.

i like that its stereo speakers not 100% front but better and i like that the side glass is not there and its a bit thicker, if you have not played with it yet you will like it over the gs8 but its not worth the upgrade i would say personally

IPhone X's have a bezel all the way around, that Apple calls a border, that bleeds directly into the notch for a cool look. It's not a full screen phone. The bezel separates screen from frame, just like on any other non full screen phone. Try all you want to convince us, but we've all seen the X, and I've owned both colors. Beautiful device, but its not full screen, or its screen to body would be 100%....It's not.

Do you really need a 'full screen phone'? Heck even s8 is not a 'full screen phone'..

Exactly, and no I don't. The S8 and Note 8 lol sick, just the way they are.

Woah Woah Star Wars guy, calm down bro I do own one too, not as rich as you fella but still my internship last year paid me enough to buy one. I aint trynna convince you, y'all have seen the X. I studied Physics bro, it says things are relative when I said full screen that was with respect to the S8, yeah S8s still got a larger screen to body ratio but those bezels don't make one feel like they're using a full screen device and that's not the case with the X.

Lol going full screen is innovation for you, when other phones have already done it much before.(If you try to counter this, then Samsung using stereo speakers on it's flagship for the first is also called innovation, just like Apple using full screen display for the first time is innovation for you) Apple is a catch up company, innovating nothing but gimmicks like Animoji, copying face unlock, notification bar, and more to come xD But but but a break through tech in camera with variable aperture and super slow mo is not innovation ROFL. Nor were there any complaints when Apple used the same boring design for 4+ years straight. Now enjoy the iPhone X desgin for the next 4 years straight and still call it innovation, you fruit sheeps LMAO

Animoji is a gimmick but still Samsung copied it lmao, face unlock on the X is something you won't understand you're just too ignorant for that.

iris is gimmick. stereo speaker isnt needed that much. 1.5 wont make a big difference

Oh man, they don't look half bad. Looks like the Samsung Experience hasn't changed much cosmetically. The Gallery and Messages icons look to be revamped with the gradients they've been adding. Love the Coral Blue version - it looks like they've struck a nice balance with the reflective sheen and the color to make it pop without being obnoxious. The camera module/fingerprint reader also look better in real life to me. Probably won't end up with this phone due to the massive price tag, but it looks like a decent upgrade.

Curved screen again? No thanks.

10. pecapello

Is that a real question ? Samsung will never drop the curved screen in its flagships, get over it. It's their signature.

Curved screen is what makes it the most beautiful design in the world

Did you honestly think after all the money invested in the infinity display, they'd do away with it? Please say you didn't. You may as well never buy a new Galaxy again.
