The Galaxy S9 and S9+ are just around the corner, and just as one could expect, almost everything regarding these anticipated devices is known at this point.

A phone with its model number hidden was recently put through the Geekbench benchmark test.

Truth be told, CES 2018 was a bit lackluster due to the relative scarcity of exciting phones, but thankfully, MWC 2018 is just around the corner with the promise for tons of new intriguing devices coming our way.

The Galaxy S9 will feature a “reimagined” variable aperture camera, faster chipset, and new color options, but all that jazz won’t come cheap, it seems. Dovetailing with a renowned leakster’s tip that the S9 and S9+ may be the most expensive Galaxy S-line phones ever, comes one unnamed “source in the UK mobile phone deals industry,” who informs us of the same:
We’re less than three weeks from the Galaxy S9 big unveil and a new set of pictures showing the flagship have just popped up online. The first press renders of the Galaxy S9 and its bigger brother, the S9+, revealed the black version of the smartphones.

Samsung already confirmed that it’s going to announce its Galaxy S9 smartphone series on February 25 at MWC 2018. For the beginning, the company will most probably unveil just two new handsets: Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+.
