The Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ are the next-generation flagship smartphones but it looks like the company will not bring in many design changes. If you were expecting a complete redesign, then you might be disappointed as there could be only minor changes. Samsung appears to have chosen to retain the same design that we saw on the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ except for thin bezels.
A couple of leaked CAD schematics images of the Galaxy S9+ also show the same. A set of schematics revealed by @OnLeaks shows that the Galaxy S9+ will have almost identical looks as the Galaxy S8+ but the bezels appear to be more rounded in comparison to its predecessor. There is a belief that the rounded bezels might make the phone better to hold so as the avoid accidental touches of the side displays that will launch an app or feature.
One of the major changes appears to be the dimensions at the bottom. The leaked schematics appear to show that the Galaxy S9+ will be 1.7mm shorter than the Galaxy S8+. The screen position and the position of the earpiece also seem to be changed a little. The most important change is something that we have been eagerly waiting for. Well, it is the presence of the fingerprint sensor. The fingerprint sensor will be positioned below the dual camera setup of the Galaxy S9+ to make it easier to reach.
According to the recent reports, the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ will feature the IntelligentScan sensing technology, which is a combination of both iris scanning and facial scanning. We need to wait and know if the feature is software-based or if there is any new hardware to proves this technology successful.
Samsung has already sent out media invites for an event to happen on February 25 at the MWC 2018 show floor in Barcelona. It has also been revealed that the upcoming Samsung flagship smartphone duo will have enhanced camera features as the invite to the event next month hints that there will be a redefined camera. Given that we are less than a month to know more details about these smartphones, we should not take the existing speculations serious without an official confirmation.
