These press renders (picture above) of the Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ have been leaked by reliable leakster Evan Blass.

Unique telefonami firmware for Galaxy S9 will be different not only in appearance but also in features that will be in it. The Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ will feature 5.8-inch and 6.2-inch Super AMOLED displays with the larger model having better hardware than its smaller counterpart. Also, the differences between both the phones will differ a lot. It is believed the S9 Plus will be released with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of memory, while the S9 ships with 4GB RAM and 64GB internal memory. The fingerprint scanner was present alongside the camera lens at the back, on the Galaxy S8 devices. But then, it would be a big gamble for Samsung to shoot up the Galaxy S9 lineup's prices.

One company using the event for its announcement will be Samsung, which has already sent out invitations for its next "Unpacked" showcase, and the expecation for the show is "The camera reimagined", something the teaser images suggests wrapping the phrase in a nine.

Even if not all the flamethrowers are sold, Musk seems to be having a blast with it, and maybe that's enough in the end. And, branded with the name of Musk's Boring Co., it's something you can preorder for $500.

While this piece may seem to give an incredibly negative view of the Galaxy S9, there are some features coming with the phone that are worth noting.

The primary camera on both smartphones is a 12MP unit with a variable aperture mechanism that can adjust from f/1.5 to f/2.4. The camera will also bring "super slow-mo" which can capture videos up to 720p at 480fps.

In his article for VentureBeat, Blass mostly reiterates the information that we have heard through multiple leaks in the past. Samsung is expected to add stereo speakers at the bottom of the two devices.
