Working Galaxy S9 leaks out in the flesh, looking rather S8-ish

Well, well, well, this might be the first time we are seeing an actual Galaxy S9 in the flesh and in the works, albeit an engineering sample of some sort, judging from the stickers on the back and front. 

We are actually not seeing anything that wasn't already revealed by the leaked official renders yesterday, and about the only features that can tell the design apart from the S8 are the horizontal fingerprint scanner below the camera lens, as well the slightly thinner bottom bezel, unless it's an optical illusion of sorts. The reason that this leak can be deemed credible is that it comes straight out of Vietnam, and the US models of the Galaxy S9 that were listed by the FCC are made in Samsung's factory there, so you might be seeing the next Verizon or T-Mobile flagship in these pics. 

Also, the body is smooth, glassy, and nothing like the alleged "3D models" found in Samsung's Unpacked AR app which look suspiciously like dummy phones in various color schemes that are a dime a dozen on the Chinese web shops. What do you think, do you like what you see if this turns out to be the Galaxy S9 indeed?
