The Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus’ front panel has just leaked, or at least it seems that way. If you take a look at the provided image above, you’ll get to see the Galaxy S9 Plus’ front panel, next to the Galaxy S8 Plus’ front panel, which allows us to compare the two. These two seem to be quite similar, though the Galaxy S9 Plus’ front panel seems to be wider, and the bottom bezel is noticeably thinner.
Now, one could wonder why is the Galaxy S9 Plus’ front panel noticeably wider than the Galaxy S8 Plus’, well, the Galaxy S9 Plus’ display will probably be larger, if this leak is accurate. You will notice that these two front panels are more or less the same height, despite the fact that the Galaxy S9 Plus’ bottom bezel is thinner, which suggests that the S9 Plus’ display is bigger in general, though it will almost certainly retain an 18:9 aspect ratio. The display on the Galaxy S8 Plus measure 6.2-inches, which could indicate that the Galaxy S9 Plus’ display will be around 6.3 or 6.4-inches, at least that’s our guess based on the provided image. This front panel also reveals that the Galaxy S9 Plus will sport Samsung’s Infinity display which comes with curved sides, though that was pretty much expected. It is worth noting that this image comes from a ‘third-party market’, according to the source, so take the provided info with a grain of salt.
The Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus is expected to launch side-by-side with its sibling, the Galaxy S9, at the end of February, if the company decides to launch those two devices during MWC in Barcelona. It’s worth noting that Samsung may opt to host a separate event in March or April instead, though, as the company did last year, so we’ll just have to wait and see. Those two smartphones will arrive in two SoC variants, US consumers will be able to get the Snapdragon 845-powered variant of the Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus, while consumers in Europe will get the Exynos 9810-powered models. Both devices will ship with Android Oreo out of the box, while Samsung’s custom UI will be installed on top of Google’s offering. The Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus will be made out of metal, and they will both sport a 3.5mm headphone jack if a recent leak is accurate.
