Samsung Galaxy S9, Galaxy S9+ Design Schematics Reveal Camera Design
The Samsung Galaxy S9 series is all set to be announced at MWC 2018 next month. While there is no official confirmation on the design, specifications, or features from Samsung, the Internet is buzzing with rumours and leaks. Yet another such leak came in the form of design schematics. The schematic of the Galaxy S9 shows what looks like a single camera setup on the back, with a fingerprint sensor below it. The Galaxy S9+, on the other hand, appears to have a dual camera setup. A listing of cases for the Galaxy S9+ has also emerged, once again hinting at the dual camera setup.
Schematics purporting to show the Galaxy S9 design have been leaked ahead of the phone’s launch on February 25 in Barcelona. The schematics have been posted on Twitter by Slashleaks contributor Zyad Atef. While it’s impossible to verify the leaked schematics, they do follow several of the rumours surrounding the release of the Galaxy S9 lineup.
The drawings depict the Galaxy S9 and S9+ front and back with minimum bezels on the left and right sides of the screen. The schematics also show a front camera, sensors, and ear piece located on the top. If the schematics are the real deal, it looks like both the Galaxy S9 and S9+ will be marginally different from the Galaxy S8 lineup, barring a few cosmetic changes. Though there’s a chance that Samsung could choose to make changes here and there and present an entirely different looking devices.
On the right side of the camera might be where the LED flash and heart rate sensor will be housed. Moving to the rear schematic of the Galaxy S9+, most of the design is similar (to the Galaxy S9 schematic) except for the new vertical dual camera setup, which looks bigger than the one on the Galaxy S9. Both schematics are in sync with the information we have received from rumours and previous listings.
The front of both the phones looks similar with front camera, sensors, and earpiece located on top. Previous reports have claimed that the Galaxy S9 might have an iris scanner integrated into the front camera and the Galaxy S9+ might sport a separate one.
Much like earlier listings from Ghostek, PoeticCases has listed new cases for the Galaxy S9+. These listings also show renders with the rumoured dual camera setup. The cases are seen in three models – Guardian, Revolution, and Affinity. All three models show an expected pre-order date of March 1, 2018.
Press invites for the Samsung Galaxy Unpacked 2018 event have been sent out. The Galaxy S9 duo are expected to launch at this event that will be held at 10:30pm IST on February 25. A early hands-on video has also surfaced online that shows the Infinity Display on the Galaxy S9. The Galaxy S9 series is expected to retain the 18.5:9 display from last year.
