Home / News / Galaxy S9+ may not be here yet but these convincing clones already are

Samsung has merely confirmed that it’s going to unveil the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ at the Mobile World Congress 2018 next month. It will confirm at the event when the handset is going to be released in key markets. The release timeframe for other markets will subsequently be confirmed by the company’s regional divisions.

It’s going to be a considerable wait for Samsung’s new flagship smartphones. That’s one of the reasons why clones of popular flagship smartphones tend to do well, the other being that they’re cheap and not everyone wants to spend $1000 on a smartphone. Samsung may not have released the Galaxy S9+ yet but very convincing clones are now surfacing in China.

Galaxy S9+ clones

It has only been a few weeks since we saw a video of a very convincing clone of the Galaxy S9+. The manufacturer has meticulously copied the key design elements right down to the dual camera at the back. This isn’t an anomaly. We saw this happen last year with the Galaxy S8 as well.

That’s what we see with this latest pair of Galaxy S9+ clones as well, demonstrated in this video in both Black and Gold or Champagne hues. Even the user interface has been copied to appear quite similar to the real thing.

There are some obvious giveaways. For starters, the device is much too thick and the display isn’t quite as bezel-less as it’s going to be on the real Galaxy S9+. The unusually chunky power button gives up the jig as well.

These Galaxy S9+ clones can be found for a fraction of the price in China. Rest assured, the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ will be expensive like their predecessors. There’s a whole market that prefers clones and they’ll certainly be happy with the quality with which these Galaxy S9 clones have been made.

Nothing beats the real thing though, obviously.

Are you sure that this is an S9 clone, not an A8 clone? Those bezels are the appropriate size for the A8, not S9 lol

I know, you should realize that it’s a joke, referring to the huge bezels on the overpriced Galaxy A8
