The countdown for the Galaxy S9 has begun. Samsung’s 2018 flagship is only weeks away from becoming official, but now we’re getting a closeup shot of what could be the phone before the announcement.
A video posted online shows a touch sensitivity test being done on the Galaxy S9, according to SlashLeaks.
It’s a little tough to see anything notable considering the video is cropped and the person behind the leak is zoomed in on the lower portion of the display. But it does indicate one thing in particular about the company’s next flagship.
Assuming this video is real, it certainly doesn’t look like Samsung intends to change all that much from last year’s flagship. The alleged Galaxy S9 shown here looks a lot like the Galaxy S8. Both have the Infinity Display, which leaked a few weeks ago, and software resembling what’s already available on other devices. While that’s not necessarily a bad thing because its predecessor was gorgeous, everyone wants to see a new design on the Galaxy S9 to be excited about.
Earlier this month Samsung confirmed it will launch the Galaxy S9 at MWC 2018, the annual mobile-focused trade show in Barcelona.
