Due to @evleaks, we’ve were given what's most probably the first respectable press renderings of the Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ to get serious about ahead of their February 25 unveiling. The pictures are incorporated in complete underneath and display the two telephones side-by-side. They give the impression of being very just like the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ as anticipated, even if I’m seeing a lot of Pixel 2 XL and LG V30 in the design as neatly.
First, listed here are the photographs.

Great, proper? They display the rounded corners we were given with closing yr’s telephones, that Infinity-style show, and a entire bunch of sensors up best, most probably as a result of Samsung goes to completely spend money on face liberate or one thing identical. That’s nice, since we are also expecting fingerprint readers on the back, in a right kind position this time. We’re getting a March 16 date on there as neatly, which might really well be the unencumber date for each and every phone.
How does it evaluate to the Galaxy S8? Right here.
Galaxy S9 vs. Galaxy S8
I’m seeing a lot extra bezel this yr. Ultimate yr, Samsung took the ones facet bezels so just about the edge, that it's important to ponder whether that they had comments suggesting they dial it again some, and give palms a bit extra cushion whilst conserving the phone to keep away from unintended presses or to make the enjoy extra ergonomic (Maybe for stereo speakers?). As a result of have a look at that Galaxy S9 vs. Galaxy S8 symbol and you must be capable to see it instantly. And no, I don’t assume it’s a shadow impact – I believe there may be extra bezel on the Galaxy S9.
Will that imply much less curve to the show? Tricky to mention. As a Pixel 2 XL person, it for sure doesn’t offend me.
Galaxy S9 vs. Pixel 2 XL vs. V30
Right here, despite the fact that, you'll be able to in point of fact see what I’m speaking about once I recommended above that it appears a lot extra like a Pixel 2 XL or LG V30 than a Galaxy S8. And in point of fact, that’s as a result of that bezel. Samsung seems to have added some this yr, which once more, doesn’t offend me as any person who makes use of a Pixel 2 XL on the day by day and used to be a large fan of the V30’s design. I’d argue that once the Galaxy Notice 8 got here out, following the Galaxy S8, that Samsung most definitely did take the bezel-less pattern to an excessive and would possibly were why the Notice 8 used to be so unenjoyable to carry.
What do you guys assume? Loving the design? Suppose it’s a step backwards?
