Samsung Galaxy S9, Galaxy S9+’s Dummy Units Show What Fully Assembled Smartphones Might Look Like
It's a bust day on the rumor mill. As Samsung's Galaxy S9 and S9+ become regular features, other devices seem eager to take the limelight as well. After successive leaks related to the Mi6X, today we saw another benchmark claim that Xiaomi will completely switch attention to its Mi Mix brand. The manufacturer does not have massive funds at its disposal, therefore updates tend to take place in iterations. However, at the moment, in today's third leak, Samsung's Galaxy S9 and S9+ see their dummy's surface. Take a look below if you want a realistic first impression for Samsung's upcoming flagship smartphones.
Polished Samsung Galaxy S9, Galaxy S9+ Dummy Units Give Hints At Pair's Overall Form; Do Not Feature Discernible Front Camera Differences
Right now, the flagship world is moving towards taller devices. Latest edge to edge displays squeeze out overall width in favor of the diagonal. This trend will also feature on this year's Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+. While Samsung will make the devices smaller, in millimeters, they won't be easy to use for people with short fingers.
While Apple's ID did kick off a design trend, manufacturers are now once again a part of the race to equip devices with the 'hottest' features. Not that we'd blame folks, that's the only way to drive up sales; what the press sells, the market buys. And right now, edge to edge displays are on fire. If you're wondering what this will look like on the Galaxy S9 pair, take a look.
Boy, are these tall. However, do not take them without the salt. Dummys and clones are wildly popular in China, and these might just be one of these. Their source is known for reporting Chinese weibo leaks, but this time, we're unable to find the true images of the devices. That being said, the details at the back give an accurate glimpse on what to expect from this year's changed configuration. Finally, while Samsung will differentiate the pair based on their rear cameras, the company won't change things at the front.
A big disappointment this year is the company's inability to bring virtual fingerprint sensor into the mix. After all, Samsung's got the resources to pull it off design wise, and manufacturing facilities to speed things up. If the company can churn out flexible OLEDs, then this should not be a stronger hassle. Thoughts? Let us know what you think in the comments section below and stay tuned. We'll keep you updated on the latest.
