Samsung’s Galaxy S9 will be announced in a little more than four weeks, though you don’t have to wait to see what it’ll look like. Multiple leaks have given us a clear indication that the 2018 flagship won’t differ much from its predecessor. Instead of changing everything, Samsung is likely sticking with a working formula. So don’t expect to see the Galaxy S9 with a radically upgraded design.
The latest leak comes out of Asia, where someone got their hands on a dummy unit. Whoever this person is decided to record the Galaxy S9 and post a video online showing the phone from every angle.
Here’s the video:
Everything shown in the video lines up with what we’ve already heard. The dummy unit has an Infinity Display with even thinner top and bottom bezels, and the back features the camera above the fingerprint scanner.
Since the display isn’t on, there isn’t anything to say about the software. It’s assumed that a new Samsung Experience, the company’s software overlay, is in order but details on that are light.
Just this week it was confirmed that, at MWC 2018 next month, the Galaxy S9 will make its global debut. Samsung scheduled the launch event for Sunday, February 26. It’ll be held on-site at the trade show in Barcelona where media members from around the world with gather to see what Samsung’s 2018 flagship is all about.
A release date hasn’t been made official yet, but one mobile industry insider claims pre-orders will open on March 1 and then Samsung will ship the Galaxy S9 two weeks later.
