German website WinFuture has given us a ton extra Galaxy S9 photos to admire earlier than the cellphone’s launch subsequent week. The images present the whole lot we have been anticipating: a cellphone that appears rather a lot like the prevailing Galaxy S8 however with a revised digicam and fingerprint setup on the again.
In addition to providing essentially the most full look but at Samsung’s subsequent flagship, these photos shoot down an odd regression proven within the earliest Galaxy S9 leaks. The early photos shared by VentureBeat confirmed a Galaxy S9 with thicker facet bezels than the Galaxy S8, and now it appears these weren’t correct. These photos present a design that appears to have the identical slim facet bezels because the Galaxy S8, which, as ordinary, will curve into the cellphone physique.
The large change this yr is an upgraded digicam, which is able to function a variable-aperture system. Similar to an actual digicam, the Galaxy S9 can have a set of (tremendous tiny) aperture blades that may open and shut with the altering mild stage, switching between f/2.four and a couple of/1.5 as wanted. Whereas each the Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus can have the variable-aperture digicam, solely the S9 Plus can have a second digicam on the again.
The brand new digicam structure strikes the fingerprint reader decrease down on the again of the machine, which needs to be a plus. The scale and placement of the fingerprint reader on the Galaxy S8 was one of many machine’s largest downsides, and whereas the sensor nonetheless appears too small to learn an entire fingertip, it needs to be a bit simpler to achieve.
Different additions to the cellphone are a brand new speaker setup, the place the earpiece capabilities as a second speaker together with the standard bottom-firing speaker. Samsung can be rumored to do its ordinary routine of copying Apple, with 3D emojis animated by way of the entrance digicam and a 3D face-unlock system.
The Galaxy S9 occasion occurs Sunday, February 25th in Spain.
