New leaks claim to reveal design and release date of Samsung Galaxy S9


Samsung’s next flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S9, is set to be launched early next year.

According to a report by Bloomberg, Samsung will officially unveil the Galaxy S9 and S9+ in February, ahead of a March launch.

Typically, Samsung unveils its new Galaxy S smartphones at Mobile World Congress, which this year is being held from February 26 to March 1.

However, last year it held a separate event in New York to launch the S8.

It is not known where Samsung will launch the Galaxy S9 and S9+ but Bloomberg says the phones will go on sale in early March. By comparison the Galaxy S8 went on sale in April last year.

The news comes after a series of images leaked earlier this week claimed to show the final design of the Galaxy S9.


An image leaked via Weibo claims to show the design of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S9

An image leaked on the Chinese site Weibo suggested that the S9 would keep the same display as on the S8 and not remove any more of the already minimal bezel at the top and bottom of the display – as had been reported previously.

What is new in the leaked document the S9 may include a single lens camera on the reverse with the fingerprint sensor located underneath.

The fingerprint sensor will surely be easier to find than on the previous model, however, it does seem to suggest that Samsung are yet to master the fingerprint sensor under the screen.

This could be the reason for the remaining bezels some have speculated and having an under the screen sensor on the S9 seems unlikely.

Meanwhile, another set of renders released serial leaker @OnLeaks claimed to show off Samsung’s up coming handsets.
