Galaxy S9 Leak Shows New Designs In 360 Videos

This afternoon we're having a peek at the Samsung Galaxy S9 as envisioned with credible early leaks. This piece of work was done by OnLeaks, AKA Steve H, a fellow who's been shockingly accurate at this sort of thing over the past couple of years. This set of images suggests that the Galaxy S9 will look quite familiar.

The Galaxy S9 as it appears here looks a whole lot like what we saw yesterday in a series of similar leaks. There, the device appeared in several colors – here it's just black. We can safely assume the Galaxy S9 will be available in more than one singular color from the start.

In this set of images above and below (and a couple videos) by Steve, we're getting a look at the device (Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus) based on schematics provided to Steve from unnamed sources. These schematics are likely coming from accessory-makers, provided by manufacturer sources with a lot to gain from said transaction. Regardless – take everything here with a grain of salt.

The images and video here come from Steve and 91mobiles and MySmartPrice. Steve generally sells the first set of images such as these to a site like 91mobiles and MySmartPrice before he pastes them anywhere else. That's why 91mobiles and MySmartPrice is in the watermark, mostly.

Below you'll see a set of specifications that are based on tips and sources aplenty from the past several weeks. These specs are not official. We will not know specs in full until Samsung's event in early 2018.

Above is the Galaxy S9, below is the S9 Plus.

It's expected – but not yet confirmed – that the Samsung event for the Galaxy S9 will take place on February 24th or 25th, 2018. This event will likely take place in Barcelona, Spain during Mobile World Congress 2018. Expect mirroring events in NYC and LA – quite possibly.
