South Korean giant Samsung flagship S8 series was very well received with its new infinity display and topnotch specs. The successor of the S8 series, the S9 is reported to come early in January or February. It’s rumoured that Samsung will unveil this model at CES 2018. The S9+ was even spotted in Geekbench. There have been several leaked renders suggesting the design of the phone, but we need not wait for more as the first real-life images of the Samsung S9 has surfaced on the web.
The pictures were shared a Twitter user who goes by the name @venyagaskin1 and also has a good track record of unveiling renders and pictures before the actual release. Not only him, but another set of pictures were also revealed on Twitter by another Chinese tipster with username @UnverseIce.

At first look, the device looked like an evolved version of the S8. The Bezels are thinner on the top and has no bezel at the bottom (except for the on-screen buttons) which looks sick. The S9 is speculated to have a screen ratio of up to 90%. The full-screen display is curved and fits very comfortably in hand. There is no fingerprint sensor on the front, which confirms the previous leaks of having the fingerprint sensor at the back.

According to the rumours and leaks, both the S9 and the S9+ will be powered by the Exynos 9 Series 9810 while the global variant will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset.

The devices will run on the latest Android 8.0 Oreo. The devices offer rear camera setup stacked in a vertical arrangement. The front camera is rumoured to come with an iris scanner and will support facial recognition features.
