Galaxy S9 Rumored to Fail Testing Phase – Might Feature the Same Bezels as the Galaxy S8
Now it was only obvious that Samsung would attempt to reduce the bezels on the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ to give a higher aesthetics score over the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ right? After all, lots of consumers might not care about the powerful internals and for some, the design will always speak higher volumes than any other part of the handset. Unfortunately, it appears that Samsung might be sticking to the same design as the Galaxy S8, and here is the reason why.
Galaxy S9 Prototype Which Featured Thinner Bezels Reportedly Failed the Testing Phase and the Actual Retail Unit Could Look Like the Galaxy S8
According to Twitter leakster ‘UniverseIce’, a Galaxy S9 prototype would have thinner bezels than its predecessor, thus giving future customers to have a reason to pick this over the Galaxy S8. Sadly, this is not going to be the case because the picture below reveals the retail unit of the Galaxy S9 and how it could like during its official launch.
Honestly, it does look like a Galaxy S8+ was outfitted with better components and become a refreshed version instead of a device that sports a changed design. This is really disappointing news to hear but since the phone has not been officially launched, we still linger onto some hope. Remember, there will be more leaks to follow, so take this one with a pinch of salt for now.
If the picture on the right does end up being the actual retail version that customers will be buying in the future, there are other things to look forward to. For example, you will have better and smarter hardware to look forward to and besides, you will finally be able to experience dual-camera optics.
However, you will need to purchase the Galaxy S9+ in order to experience these exclusive upgrades, but it could all be worth it in the end.
Would you still upgrade to the Galaxy S9 in the future? Tell us your thoughts down in the comments.
