Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus may be revealed sooner than anyone had anticipated before today, according to a new report.

However, Samsung is reportedly taking these reports very seriously and planning to leave no stone unturned to fetch an enhanced iris scanner for its upcoming flagship device - Galaxy S9.

The renders included below, courtesy of BGR, were released by smartphone case manufacturer Ghostek and give us a sense of what we can expect from the new phone.

Although the phones will probably like strikingly similar to the 2017 Galaxy models (other than the upgraded specs), Samsung might actually be giving one phone a couple of new features that the other won't get. If the renders from this Galaxy S9 leak are any indication, it's going to be a handsome device with premium looks to accompany its premium performance.

The bigger model is said to sport a dual rear camera setup (unlike the S9) and more RAM than its smaller sibling.

While you might not see any fantastic deals on the iPhone X, chances are there will be some better than usual offers, and some good deals on the Samsung S8 and the newly released Google Pixel 2. Yes, the Galaxy S9 will come with two cameras at the back, and they will be vertically oriented. Samsung has entered the race of dual-camera smartphones with the Galaxy Note 8 earlier this year. And despite the fact that the camera configuration will apparently differ on the phones, the camera will sit above the fingerprint sensor on the back of both phones. Both devices will keep the 3.5mm headphone jack around for a year longer, too, if the report pans out.
