The Samsung Galaxy S9 will arrive in the first half of next year, and the phone’s front panel has just surfaced. If you take a look at the provided image, you’ll be able to see the alleged Galaxy S9 front panel. As you can see, this front panel resembles the Galaxy S8’s front panel quite a bit, though its bezels seems to be ever so slightly thinner, although it’s very hard to notice, as they seems quite similar, actually. The display of the Galaxy S9 will sport rounded corners yet again, it seems, and the phone’s front camera will be placed on the right side of the phone’s earpiece, as a cutout for the front camera is clearly visible here.
Now, this front panel also suggests that the Galaxy S9’s display will be curved, which is exactly what we’re expecting, as the display of both the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus was curved as well. The sides of the Galaxy S9 will be slightly less rounded than the ones on the Galaxy S9, which is something that is also noticeable by looking at this front panel. That’s pretty much everything we can deduct from this image, though it’s worth saying that the alleged Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus handsets have surfaced yesterday, well, renders of those two devices, and in renders, it seemed like the bezels on the Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus will be much thinner, though chances are that this front panel is legit. The Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus will sport thin bezels, but only slightly thinner than the ones on the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus, as the bezels on the renders that surfaced yesterday are basically non-existent, and that’s probably not doable just yet.
The Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus will almost certainly land in the first half of next year, either during the Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona, or at the company’s separate event which will take place in April. The Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus will be made out of metal, just like its predecessors, and the two devices will ship with a rear-facing fingerprint scanner, though that fingerprint scanner will be placed in a more convenient place this time around. A dual camera setup is rumored for both devices, and you can expect to get Android Oreo out of the box, along with Samsung’s skin, of course. The two phones will probably ship with 5.8 and 6.2-inch panels, respectively, and you can expect to see Samsung’s QHD+ Super AMOLED infinity display once again on both of these devices.
