A fresh round of renders regarding the Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ have been leaked which come from VentureBeat’s Evan Blass. The images indicate Samsung’s upcoming flagship devices which resembles the previous generation Galaxy S8 duo in terms of design. According to recent reports, the Galaxy S9 is expected to feature the same 5.8-inch display, while the Galaxy S9+ is expected to sport a 6.2-inch display. A new report also suggests that the devices will incorporate ‘Intelligent Scan’ technology which combines the iris scanner and face recognition to improve device unlocking in bad lighting conditions.
Evan Blass has suggested a traditional approach to the design on the Galaxy S9 series due for launch on 25th February. The VentureBeat report claims that this year will be merely a component upgrade for Samsung’s flagship range. Borrowing design elements from last year, the S9 series is expected to be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 in US and China, and Samsung Exynos 9810 SoC in other markets. A new 6GB RAM/ 128GB storage variant for the Galaxy S9+ might launch this year. Both phones are expected to sport QHD+ Super AMOLED displays with rounded edges. While the report does not show any shots of the back of the phones, it suggests that the fingerprint sensor will now be placed below the camera sensor and not beside it. The report also claims that the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ will start shipping from March 16.
Meanwhile, Android Police reports that a developer has spotted mentions of ‘Intelligent Scan’ in the Samsung’s Settings app.
