Samsung’s next-generation Galaxy S9 smartphone is rumoured to likely drop in January next year alongside the Galaxy S9+. While we cannot be so sure about that, there is a strong chance of that happening. The tech giant may likely unveil the models at CES 2018 which usually holds in January. Expectedly, several renders of the Galaxy S9 have started appearing even long before now. However, we just have spotted the real pictures of the Galaxy S9 online.
The pictures which appeared on Twitter were shared by @venyagaskin1 who has a good track record with accurate renders even before the real phone gets unveiled. It wasn’t stated if the photos were real pictures of the Galaxy S9 but they look so real you’d hardly doubt if they are real. Another set of pictures also popped up on Twitter via Chinese tipster @UnverseIce. As for the design, the pictures reveal a continuation of the full-screen design first used on the Galaxy S8. The S9 is said to have an even more reduced bezel and a screen ratio of up to 90%. There is also a curved edge infinity display design on the Galaxy S9 and much of the change occurred on the chin where the bezels are narrower than that of the S8. The top bezel is also slightly reduced, leaving just enough room to hold the selfie camera, earpiece and other sensors.
The Samsung Galaxy S9 is expected to feature a Snapdragon 845 chip on one of its versions while a second version will be equipped with an Exynos 9810 processor. The pictures/renders did not show the rear view of the device but we expect the Galaxy S9 to pack a dual camera setup at the rear this time around. The device is also expected to come with an iris scanner, rear-mounted fingerprint sensor and would have facial recognition technology.
