Samsung Galaxy S9+ Leaks In CAD Drawing From Trusted Source; Shows Subtle Upgrades Over The Galaxy S8+
Right now, all eyes in the tech world are on Samsung’s Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+, After the iPhone X, Samsung’s left with one less feature over its traditional competitor, Apple. And, Apple took the lead with Face ID, making everyone look a bit shorthanded. As per tradition, leaks within a month’s time frame to official launch once again start to iron out the details. Not that we’ve got much wrinkles. Famous tipster Steve Hemmerstoffer is back today, reiterating what he believes the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ will look like. Take a look below for more details.
Semi-Detailed, Alleged Samsung Galaxy S9+ CAD Drawing Shows Samsung’s Attention To Subtle Details For Upgrade
The current hallmark for a flagship smartphone is an edge to edge OLED display. Samsung and LG made it mainstream, with their launches in 1H 2017. This year, LG’s out of the race as far as the MWC goes. The company’s eagerness to shine in Samsung’s spotlight cost it a crucial feature on the G6 last year, and after the G5’s lukewarm performance, the company is taking a step back.
This leaves all eyes on Samsung, to mark Android first high-profile smartphone launch for the year. It’s the only company with the resources to match Apple. Soon, maybe we’ll see Google take the mantle up, but without Samsung’s design. Seoul has moved fast recently, with its form factor for the Galaxy S improving in leaps. First, it was the edged display, and now, a complete, edge-to-edge one.
Onleaks is back today, with CAD renders of the Galaxy S9+. These demonstrate how hard Samsung’s tried to shrink down bezels on last year’s smartphone. The big question for the S9+’s top, as we move towards launch, is: will the smartphone house extra sensors for facial recognition. The only concrete information right now suggests an imitation of what OnePlus achieved with Face Unlock. The S9+ will also be shorter than its predecessor, opting for a look resembling Xiaomi’s Mi Mix 2.
At the processing end, expect the usual top end hardware from Qualcomm and a dual camera setup at the back. Samsung will adopt the feature on its Galaxy S lineup this year, after waiting for it to catch on. The rumors for photography are more interesting for the smaller Galaxy S9. These, claim a variable aperture single camera sensor. This little, yet very crucial upgrade will set Samsung’s 1H 2018 launch apart from the pack. Thoughts?
