We are just a week away from MWC 2018, where Samsung will be unveiling its latest flagship lineup with the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+. As expected, there have been many different leaks and rumors regarding these devices leading up to the official event.
What was not expected was the plethora of leaked images that were provided earlier today by the likes of WinFuture
. Starting things off, Roland Quandt of WinFuture
provided an array of press images of the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ which confirmed the design and some of the features.

The new renders confirm that Galaxy S9 and S9+ will sport only a slight redesign, with the bulk of the changes coming to the rear of the device. Instead of having a fingerprint scanner mounted on the far right, Samsung is moving it to a more natural position below the camera sensor.
Quandt shared a series of renders for the three color options expected to ship in Europe: lilac, black, and coral blue. Then, Evan Blass (@evleaks) upped the ante a bit and provided a press render for a titanium gray color option that will launch in an as-yet-unknown region.
Quandt also offered up some of the promotional material for the Galaxy S9 lineup. This is important because it reveals some of the most important features of these devices.

First, you can see a person holding the Galaxy S9 with an emphasis on not one but two speakers. This refers to the 'AKG-tuned' speakers we were already expecting to see on the device. The next promo image seems to confirm that the Galaxy S9+ will come with dual cameras on the rear, with listed apertures of f/1.5 and f/2.4, showing the different light or dark settings they will both be ideal for.
All of these leaks and renders reveal practically everything that the Galaxy S9 lineup will bring to the market. The only exception comes from the internal specs, but we know it will be a flagship-level device.
This means we'll be seeing Qualcomm's latest chipset with the Snapdragon 845. The Galaxy S9 will be coupled with 4GB of RAM, while the S9+ will see a bump up to 6GB. Samsung's official Unpacked event kicks off on February 25th, and the company will be live-streaming it online so you can watch from the comfort of your own home.
