Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ renders surface again


Last week first renders of the upcoming Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus smartphones surfaced online. Now new renders of the smartphones have surfaced showing the back with rear camera with fingerprint sensor below them along with branding, thanks to dBrand who has already started taking pre-orders for the skins for the phones.

The Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ components surfaced soon after the renders showing the fingerprint sensor below the rear camera, and the flash and heart rate sensor next to the camera. These new renders coincide with the leak.

Recently leaked retail box revealed key camera specifics including a super-speed Dual-Pixel 12-megapixel camera with OIS, an F1.5/2.4 variable aperture for the S9, but the S9+ is said to feature dual 12MP rear camera with fixed aperture.
