Among all the leaks and rumours that have surfaced so far, this new one seems the most promising. This is the first time that the official images of the upcoming Galaxy S9 and S9+ have leaked online. It is a press image of both the S-series flagships which are probably sporting the final design. Samsung has officially announced that the launch event has been scheduled for February 25, a day before MWC begins.
This leak comes from none other than Evan Blass and based on his past record, we can safely say that these are indeed the Galaxy S9 and S9+. While we have seen the unofficial renders in the past too, this image is much closer to the actual product that will be launched next month.
What it looks from the image is that the 2018 S-family devices will be having a design that is heavily inspired by their predecessors. An interesting thing to note here is the presence of dual cameras on the front of both the devices. Samsung Galaxy A8+, which was announced recently, is the first phone from the company to sport a dual-camera setup on the front.
There may be two front-facing cameras on both the devices but that’s not the case for rear cameras. The Galaxy S9 will have a single rear camera while the Galaxy S9+ will be announced with a dual-camera setup, like the Galaxy Note 8. For its 2018 flagships, Samsung is going for the iPhone-like approach where the bigger phone also gets better and more features.

A thing that seems off in these images is the side bezel on both the phones. The Galaxy S8, with its curved display on both the sides, manages to hide most of the side bezels. While in these press images, the side bezels are much more prominent than they should be, making it look similar to the Galaxy A8+, which, apparently, doesn’t have a curved display.
Nevertheless, the phones will be announced on February 25 and we will get answers to all our questions then. In the meanwhile, we expect to get many more similar leaks to keep us all excited for the two phones.
