Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ go official with new hardware, old looks

Samsung has just unpacked the new Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ flagship duo in Barcelona. The new devices are helming Samsung’s 2018 smartphone portfolio with new hardware but old looks.

Both S9 and S9+ retain the familiar glass-sandwich design with water-proofing, aluminum frame, curved Gorilla glasses, and everything. Samsung has trimmed the screen bezels a bit and thus both phones have insignificantly smaller footprints than their respective predecessors.

The minor changes in the design include a well-hidden iris scanner, a properly placed fingerprint reader, and a changed grille for the bottom speaker.
