Ghostek has listed a case for the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S9. Renders of the smartphone show a design that other reports have been suggesting in the past few weeks.

Rear renders reveal a single camera setup on the Galaxy S9
Bixby button retained on the Galaxy S9
Ghostek case renders show an interesting point, the back of the smartphone is slightly altered and S9 will only feature a single camera, no dual camera, which might be exclusive to S9+. So, buyers must not expect more from the designs which will be quite similar to S8, only it will have slightly more features than the previous version. The case will have features like shockproof, impact and drop protection. The case will also feature touch ID fingerprint and will face ID compatible. Earlier, Samsung has faced a lot of criticism for keeping the fingerprint scanner alongside the lens in Galaxy S8 but in this design by placing the fingerprint just below the lens, Ghostek has rectified from their previous version. The case will support wireless charging that has been there since S6.
Samsung has published its teardown of the Gear S3 to show what’s inside the compact smartwatch.
The bracket of the Gear S3, which also acts as its chassis, incorporates Bluetooth and Wi-Fi for wireless communication, a linear motor for vibration and haptic feedback, and a microphone as well as a loudspeaker for voice calls and other things. Most of the components and sensors such as the accelerometer, barometer, gyro, battery, memory, NFC, GPS, heart-rate monitor, eSIM, processor, and the microphone are situated on the mainboard.
The issue happens when flawed gadgets are being charged, and is down to an issue inside the batteries themselves, instead of force connectors or hardware. Obviously, it influences just a little rate of gadgets, however when shipments are in the millions, that still adds up to a major issue. Yonhap News Agency refers to an unknown authority saying that batteries were sourced from both China and Korea, and it’s the Korean-made batteries that are influenced. In any case, Samsung is reviewing all demonstrates no doubt.
To date (as of September 1) there have been 35 cases that have been reported globally and we are currently conducting a thorough inspection with our suppliers to identify possible affected batteries in the market. However, because our customers’ safety is an absolute priority at Samsung, we have stopped sales of the Galaxy Note7.
