In late-breaking photo leak, Galaxy S9 bares it all

Here is the Bixby button. It's always there.

On this side, there is power and volume.

The German WinFuture site gave us a ton of Galaxy S9 images to admire before the launch of the phone next week. The photos show everything we expected: a phone that looks a lot like the existing Galaxy S8 but with a revised camera and a fingerprint configuration on the back.

In addition to offering the most complete look of Samsung's next flagship, these photos will shoot a strange regression in the Galaxy S9's first leaks. The first pictures shared by VentureBeat showed a Galaxy S9 with thicker side edges than the Galaxy S8, and now it seems that these were not accurate. These images show a design that seems to have the same side edges as the Galaxy S8, which, as usual, will curl into the phone's body.

The big change this year is an improved camera, which will feature a variable aperture system. Just like a real camera, the Galaxy S9 will have a set of (tiny) opening blades that can open and close with the changing light level, switching between f / 2.4 and 2 / 1.5 depending on needs. While both Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus will have the variable aperture camera, only the S9 Plus will have a second camera on the back.

The new camera layout moves the fingerprint reader further down the back of the camera, which should be a plus. The size and location of the fingerprint reader on the Galaxy S8 was one of the biggest drawbacks of the device, and even though the sensor still seems too small to read the full fingertip, it should be a little easier to reach.

Other additions to the phone are a new speaker configuration, where the earpiece functions as a second speaker with the usual low shot speaker. Samsung is also supposed to do its usual routine of copying Apple, with 3D emojis animated through the front camera and a 3D face unlocking system .

The Galaxy S9 event will take place on Sunday 25 February in Spain.
