The Galaxy S8/S8 Plus have been two of the most formidable phones this year. But as we inch closer to 2018, we’re seeing more and more elaborate leaks of its successor the Galaxy S9. Today, in particular, we might potentially be having our first look at the realistic design of the handset. Fresh new CAD renders and a 360-degree video have just surfaced online tonight courtesy of efforts from 91mobiles and @Onleaks.

This is great news for Galaxy S series fans out there. However, if the 360-degree video is anything to go by, many fans might end up disappointed. Especially, since the source of these renders is a credible one. The big takeaway from this is that the Galaxy S9 will not have a 90% screen to body ratio as has been heavily rumoured. Instead, Samsung will stick to the Galaxy S8 design. If there’s any good news from this, it’s that you’re still going to get a 3.5mm jack. Moreover, the Galaxy S9 will not get a dual camera setup at the back, not according to these renders. Also, you’ll not be surprised to see the fingerprint sensor in a better position than before.
The source also believes the Galaxy S9 will feature a 5.65-inch screen. If you’re still looking for dimensions, they are likely to be 147.6 x 68.7 x 8.4mm. This still leaves a question mark on the Galaxy S9 +. Recent rumours have hinted that Samsung will differentiate a lot more between this year’s S series duo compared to previous years. This means that there’s still hope for a dual rear camera setup on the S9 Plus.
What do you think of this design? Is it boring? Will you still be buying the Galaxy S9 when it releases? Let us know in the comments below.
