With CES fast approaching, Samsung is all in for the upcoming Galaxy S9 which are rumoured to launch during CES. The smartphone has been leaked a lot recently and did manage to make its way in the fresh set of leaks online. A user on Chinese website Weibo posted photos of the device showing off the design and camera. You can check out the images below.

The pictures do confirm that the device will feature the same design as S8 and S8+ but will even thinner bezels. The leak also confirms the change in position of the fingerprint scanner from the side of the camera to below the camera.

Earlier Geekbench results confirmed the device will be powered by a  Snapdragon 845 processor with 6 GB RAM. It follows the same design language as S8 and will come in 18:9 ratio. The Galaxy S9 will have a 5.8-inch display and the S9+ will have a 6.2-inch display. The more good news is the fact that Samsung has retained the 3.5mm headphone jack and the MicroSD Card slot.

Another recent Geekbench leak shows that Samsung is planning or rather testing Android Oreo on Galaxy S9 but it is still not confirmed if the company plans to release the device with Oreo.

Also, the S9+ is rumoured to have a dual camera setup like the one on iPhone. Samsung is expected to reveal the device in CES or at MWC in February. Either way, it is just a couple of months worth of wait to see what Samsung has planned for the consumers in 2018.
