We’re just a couple of weeks away from Samsung officially unveiling the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus, but that hasn’t stopped the leaks from rolling in. Last week, we got our first look at some official renders of the lineup, but those were limited to just the front of the devices.

Today, Evan Blass has decided to give us a look at the new Lilac Purple version of these devices. On top of that, we are getting views of the devices from all four sides, including the rear of the devices where there are some welcome design changes.

Arguably the biggest complaint about Samsung’s flagship devices from 2017 was the placement of the fingerprint scanner. This was placed to the far right, making it extremely awkward and inconvenient to use on a regular basis.

It seems that Samsung has listened to the people and decided to place the fingerprint scanner in a more natural position, in the center of the device. The scanner will share a place with the different camera modules on each device.

Speaking of the cameras, these renders confirm that Samsung will be differentiating the Galaxy S9 and the Plus model in more ways than just screen size. For its latest devices, the standard Galaxy S9 will have a single rear-camera, while the S9 Plus will have dual camera sensors.

This is a rather surprising move, but it’s not completely unheard of when comparing the Galaxy S9 lineup to Apple’s iPhone 8 lineup. The iPhone 8 has a single rear-mounted camera, while the larger iPhone 8 Plus has the dual-camera system in-tow.

Samsung will officially be unveiling its latest devices at MWC 2018 on February 25th. The company will be live-streaming the event on its own website, so be sure to get ready for all of the excitement to commence.
