Samsung Galaxy S9 Design Shown Off in Samsung’s Soundcamp App
As we inch closer to the Samsung Galaxy S9’s unveiling, we’re starting to see details about the upcoming flagship leak in earnest. We already know that it’ll be an iterative improvement over its predecessor; that it’ll be available in black, gold, blue and purple colors; and that it probably won’t have an in-display fingerprint sensor. And this week, a new slip from Samsung might have revealed the Galaxy S9’s design.
It comes from an unlikely source: The Play Store and Samsung Galaxy App Store listings for Soundcamp, a first-party Samsung application that lets you compose, edit, and share music by playing pre-loaded instruments or downloading third-party music apps. Newly updated Soundcamp screenshots show an unannounced Samsung smartphone that shares characteristics in common with the Galaxy S9’s rumored design, and line up with other published renders of the Galaxy S9.
It’s impossible to judge the screenshots’ veracity without a corroborating source, but we might not have to wait much longer. The Galaxy S9 will reportedly be revealed a day before Mobile World Congress on February 27, according to Bloomberg. Initial rumblings suggested it would make an appearance at the 2018 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, but they’ve since been debunked.
It’s important to keep in mind, of course, that leaks and rumors come from third-party sources and should always be taken with a grain of salt. (Even well-sourced leakers have gotten things wrong in the past.) Nothing is for certain until there’s an official announcement.
