Today, we've got 2018's first major leak for you. Samsung's Galaxy S9 and S9+ are regular features of the rumor mill. They'll launch two months from now, at the sidelines of the annual Mobile World Congress. The Korean tech giant made strides with its S8 and S8+ last year. The pair introduced its edge to edge OLED displays, which completely changed the look and feel of the lineup. Now, we're ready for some subtle changes this year. Today, the S9 pair surface in their first alleged live photo leak. Take a look below to find out more.
Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ Surface In First Live Photo; Confirm Dual Camera For The Latter
Right now, we've got a fair idea of what to expect from Samsung this year. The Korean tech giant will take it slow in 2018, as far as the S9 lineup is concerned. After all, it's heading quite confidently into this year, as opposed to the last. We all remember the tight spot Samsung was in before its S8 and S8+ launch gave the company some breathing room. Not only did its Note 7 fail as a gadget, the company also landed itself into trouble with law enforcement.
However, that's behind Samsung now. Its excellent edge to edge OLED displays ensure that the Korean tech giant is leading in a crucial flagship smartphone aspect. With the S9 and S9+, it'll choose to further refine last year's offerings. Samsung will also pull off an 'Apple' this year, as it finally introduces a dual camera setup to the Galaxy S lineup.
Today, we've got a fresh leak from China. Posted on the social networking site Weibo, it's an Indian blog hub.91 who picked it up. They're not courteous enough to provide an original source though, aiming to get all the traffic they can from back links. If you're reading the hub.91, it helps everyone if you're open about your sources. It makes it easier to spot fakes that way. That being said, today's images look way more glossy than what we'd expect from the S9 and S9+. However, they do confirm a dual camera setup for the larger smartphone.
They also feature a glass back, with a re-positioned rear fingerprint sensor. All in all, today's leak matches perfectly with earlier information for Samsung's 2018 flagship lineup. Whether it's authentic, we'll find out soon enough. Rest assured, you can expect the final launch to resemble today's leak. Thoughts?
