Fake Samsung Galaxy S9+ handled on video

Peter, 03 January 2018

Well, this is ahead of schedule – the Samsung Galaxy S9+ just appeared in a short hands-on video. And it’s a fully working unit too... though we have a sneaking suspicion it’s a copycat rather than the genuine article.

There’s not much to say about the front – it’s dominated by an Infinity Display as expected. But it’s not centered, the bottom bezel is thicker than the top one. And what’s with the chunky Power button?

The app drawer is even more telling – there’s an FM radio app for one, which the original will (sadly) lack. Not to mention that there’s no Galaxy Apps shortcut. And S Planner is now Samsung Calendar, there’s no Heart rate app (it’s Samsung Health), we can go on.

The video shows a brief glimpse of the camera app which differs from the app on the Galaxy Note8. Not that Samsung can’t change the design, but we’re missing the “x2” button, which switches over to the telephoto camera (which is seemingly present on the back).

Oh, well. A valiant effort – and impressive because it comes ahead of the true Galaxy S9+.
