Samsung can’t seem to keep a lid on anything these days. Following several leaks ahead of the Galaxy S9 release, a major leak detailing as many as 15 new features appeared on the internet.
The leaks were obtained by an infamously accurate ‘leaker’ Steve Hammersstoffer who got his hands on a render of a case for the new phone which hints at the design.
To everyone’s disappointment, Samsung seems to be playing safe with their new flagship phone as the leaks suggest that there will be minor design changes in the new phone. So if you were expecting a massive design overhaul just like Apple did with it’s iPhone X, you may be slightly disappointed.
According to the leaked photos of the Samsung Galaxy S9, the only design change is actually at the back of the phone where Samsung has decided to move the fingerprint sensor slightly moved away but still close to the camera.
So according to the leaks, Samsung will not change much of the design of the new phone as far as the front panel is concerned.
Apart from the design, here are the other features that have been leaked:
- Samsung Galaxy S9 will have a bigger battery of 3200 mAh.

- S9 Plus edition of the phone will have dual rear cameras
- Galaxy S9 will continue to have a single rear camera
- The cameras are repositioned to the center of the phone
- The fingerprint sensor is now repositioned centrally and the button is now aligned horizontally
- The camera flash has also been repositioned centrally to the right side of the cameras
- No changes to the Mono bottom edge speaker
- No fingerprint sensor under the display
- Samsung S9 will have 4GB / 6GB variants while S9 Plus will have only 6 GB RAM variant
- Infinity Edge displays now have smaller bezels
- Both the phones will have Snapdragon 845 chipsets
- The phone is currently being tested on Android 8.0 Oreo but there is a possibility that it may be shipped with Android 7.1
According to experts, Samsung will be revealing the Galaxy S9 as soon as February 2018.
