Samsung Galaxy S9 Design leak

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.

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Ghostek case shows that the Galaxy S9 will have thinner bezels
  • 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.
