Every year, smartphone manufacturers try to keep details about their upcoming smartphones a secret, but that doesn’t help in keeping the leaks away. Details about Samsung’s next flagship smartphones, the Galaxy S9-duo have been leaked on numerous occasions, revealing almost every aspect of the smartphones. After leaked renders offering a closer look at the design and overall look of the upcoming phones, we have now come across a hands-on video of the purported Galaxy S9+ prototype.

First spotted by bgr.com, the video shows a black variant of the Galaxy S9+ smartphone. From the prototype, the Galaxy S9+ seems to carry the same design as that of the Galaxy S8-duo with the Infinity Display dominating the front panel along with the curved edges.

At the back, you will see a dual-camera setup. While the Galaxy Note 8 featured horizontal setup, the Galaxy S9+ has camera modules placed vertically as per the leak. After criticism from users, Samsung has also moved the fingerprint sensor below the camera modules to avoid smudges on the camera lens. On the right side of the camera, there is an LED flash module and heart rate sensor. The 3.5mm headphone jack can also be seen on the bottom of the phone. No other details about the smartphone were revealed in the video.

From what we have heard so far, the Samsung Galaxy S9, and Galaxy S9+ will reportedly launch in ‘early March’ and before the release, Samsung is expected to announce the smartphones at the Mobile World Congress on February 25, 2018.

Further, reports suggest that the Galaxy S9+ will feature a 6.2-inch edge-to-edge Super AMOLED “Infinity Display”, dual-camera setup at the back and will likely have a 3,500mAh battery.

On the other hand, the Galaxy S9 is said to come with a single camera lens and will reportedly feature a 3,200mAh battery. The Samsung Galaxy S9 could sport 5.8-inch edge-to-edge Super AMOLED “Infinity Display”. Under the hood, both smartphones are likely to be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC or Exynos 9810 SoC, depending on the region of launch.
