Dbrand Leaks Samsung Galaxy S9, Galaxy S9+ Design
Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ will be launched on the 25th of February in Barcelona. So far, there have been enough leaks to suggest that the new devices won’t look a whole lot different from their predecessors. The latest images of the upcoming devices come from an unlikely source called dbrand. One of the most famous smartphone skin makers in the world, dbrand has started taking pre-orders for the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ customised skins.
Many on social media believe that dbrand has opened itself up to a potential lawsuit. It is worth noting that dbrand did the same before the launch of the Galaxy S8 and S8+. The design visible in the images of dbrand’s official website is very similar to what we have seen so far. The fingerprint sensor is now placed below the camera module on both the phones.
Interestingly, the infamous Bixby button retains its place on the left-hand side of the device, just below the volume rockers. The lock/unlock button is on the right-hand side. As speculated, the top and bottom bezels look thinner ever so slightly. Thankfully, Samsung will continue with its edge-to-edge design, unlike a previous press render.
The Galaxy S9 will have a 5.8 inch Super AMOLED display while the Galaxy S9+ will have a 6.2 inch display. Both the devices will have a 2960 x 1440 px resolution.
Similar to its predecessor, the Galaxy S9 will have a single 12MP SuperSpeed Dual Pixel camera. This time around, however, the camera will have an f/1.5 aperture and record super slow motion videos, probably at 960fps. The Samsung Galaxy S9+ will become the second phone from Samsung to feature a dual-camera setup on the back after the Galaxy Note8. Similar to the Samsung Galaxy Note8, the Galaxy S9+ will have a wide-angle and a telephoto lens setup.
Owing to the launch of the Samsung flagship phones, a lot of companies have restrained from making significant announcements. It was recently revealed that Xiaomi could skip the Mi 7 launch at MWC as well, similar to what Huawei and HTC will do. The new devices from Samsung are expected to be priced similarly to the original price of the Galaxy S8 and S8+. More details are expected to follow until the official release of the phones.
