New case renders have surfaced in an exclusive report by BGR who claim the following may be our first look at the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S9 in a case. not very many visual differences can be seen on the front of the device when compared to the Galaxy S8, but when looking at the back, you’ll notice vertically-placed dual cameras and a fingerprint sensor in a location that could actually be reachable this time around.
BGR also says both a Galaxy S9 and S9+ will be arriving next year and likely without a competitor to Apple’s Face ID security system introduced on the iPhone X. The devices will reportedly ship with Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processors and Exynos 9810 chips in other parts of the world and be paired with 4 or 6GB of RAM.
According to their sources, BGR claims these renders are nearly spot on. Case maker Ghostek created them based on information shared in factories where Samsung will manufacture the S9. One source said the back is perfectly in line with what to expect on the real device, but the top bezel above the screen will likely be a bit smaller.
While Samsung’s S8 didn’t land until April, next year’s S9 is reported to be unveiled in February and ship in March, therefore taking a relatively early lead ahead of the rest of the smartphone world. LG is also expected to unveil its G7 smartphone at that time next year as well so it’ll be interesting to see what’s the preferred option by consumers.
As time progresses and more leaks start popping up, we’ll let you know of the latest surrounding the Galaxy S9.
