Latest Galaxy S9 leak leaves little to the imagination

We're less than a week away from the official launch of the Galaxy S9 and the Galaxy S9+. While we already know what to expect from the Galaxy S9, a new leak has left little to the imagination. Not only does it reiterate what we've heard about the Galaxy S9's specifications but it also brings some images of the Galaxy S9 and the Galaxy S9+ as well. The leak likely stems from some retailer's database.

As expected, the design itself is quite similar to the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8+ with the bottom bezel being noticeably smaller. The placement of the fingerprint sensor below the camera is one major design change. We can also see the new Lilac Purple color in these images.

Galaxy S9 leaked in all its glory

Samsung's own teasers have suggested that the camera will perhaps be the biggest selling point of its new flagship. The leak reiterates that the Galaxy S9+ has a dual camera and that the camera on both models will feature f/1.5 and f/2.4 variable aperture. This will result in enhanced performance in both low-light and well-lit conditions. Reports about the slow-motion feature supporting up to 960fps have been backed up by this leak though the resolution hasn't been revealed.

The company will finally be introducing stereo speakers to its flagship smartphones with the Galaxy S9. Tuned by AKG, the stereo speakers will provide surround sound using the bottom-firing speaker and the earpiece which will double as a speaker as well.

No new revelations have been made in this latest Galaxy S9 leak as far as the specifications are concerned. The Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ feature 5.8-inch and 6.2-inch 2960 x 1440 pixel resolution 18.5:9 aspect ratio displays, Exynos 9810 processor in most markets as well as 3,000mAh and 3,500mAh batteries.

The base model will feature 64GB of storage and the Galaxy S9 will feature 4GB of RAM while the Galaxy S9+ will get 6GB. Both models will also be available in a dual-SIM variant.

No word as yet on the pricing but Samsung is reportedly going to start taking pre-orders for the Galaxy S9 and the Galaxy S9+ on February 25, the very same day that they're unveiled, with shipments starting March 8.




Update: @evleaks just followed up on this leak with a render of the Galaxy S9 in Titanium Gray. This color will be available in markets outside Europe.

Update 2: More renders have been leaked by @evleaks. It's just more of the same now.
