Evleaks has done it again. This time around, the prolific leaker has published a set of renders for the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ which are scheduled for launch at the Samsung Unpacked event this February in conjunction with the Mobile World Congress 2018.
These renders further strengthen the rumors of size differences that we can expect from the upcoming 2018 Samsung flagship smartphones. According to the rumors that we have heard so far, the Samsung Galaxy S9 will apparently carry a 5.7-inch display while the S9+ will feature a 6.2-inch display.

At the same time, Evan has also revealed the rear camera arrangement that will be featured on both devices. As you can see, they are quite different from their predecessors:
According to certain reports, Samsung will be introducing camera module with variable mechanical aperture for the rear cameras on the 2018 S-series line which was adopted from W2018, Specifically, the main rear camera on Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ will feature a lens with changeable aperture of between f/1.5 to f/2.4.
As for the new secondary rear camera on Galaxy S9+, it will be equipped with a fixed f/2.4 lens instead. All rear cameras on both phones will come with 12MP sensor while their front cameras will carry 8MP sensor instead.
Meanwhile, we will apparently see two different processors on these devices as well in the form of Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 and Samsung’s own Exynos 9810 depending on respective markets. There will be two memory and storage configurations with 4GB RAM and 64GB internal storage for the Galaxy S9 while the larger Galaxy S9+ might receive 6GB RAM and 128GB of internal storage.
Not to forget, Evan has also revealed that Samsung might introduce an animoji-like feature with the selfie shooter on both devices. Even though all these leaks might feel like that they are taking the party away from Samsung, we are still curious enough to see them in action and we expect to hear even more about the company’s new flagships as we get closer to the Unpacked event next month.
