Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9

Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9

But the bottom bezels are slightly thinner, which is the major difference from the front between last iteration devices.

In Blass' tweet, it's clear that the image embedded is the same as the one featured on leaked press renders of the S9 and S9 Plus. The rear design will be different when compared to last generation flagship smartphones.

Apart from that, the Galaxy S9 Plus is expected to sport a dual camera setup on the back, with wide-angle and zoom lens capabilities.

Samsung itself has however helped us out today after their German website posted a support page which gives us some hints about the launch and the availability of the device. It's hard to tell from this single image, but Samsung made a big deal out of how the S8's screen curves over the edge of the phone, and it doesn't quite seem like the same thing is happening here.

But while the Galaxy S9 will come with 4GB RAM and 64GB storage, the Galaxy S9+ will come with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage.

As the Unpacked invitation suggests, the main highlight for both the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ will be refreshed imaging hardware and software - a notion confirmed by two people briefed on Samsung's plans. Just like we have first seen on the Samsung W2018 clamshell phone. Definitely an interesting proposition and based on their previous track record, Samsung is one of the best manufacturers to make a 1.5f aperture camera phone work. Besides motion-detected, "super slow-mo" video capture (rapid movement triggers 480fps recording at 720p), both devices are said to feature variable aperture on their primary 12-megapixel cameras.

It means we're left feeling a little uneasy about this particular leak. The smartphones are expected to start shipping on March 16, 2018.
