Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ front panels leak alongside rumored battery capacity

Last week we showed you CAD-based renders of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+, which have showed the devices from all angles (there are even render videos). Today coming to further confirm the minimal design changes for the S9 duo from their predecessors is a shot of their front panels.

The image clearly shows a very similar design to the S8 and S8+, but with ever so slightly smaller screen bezels. The trimming is especially noticeable when you glance at the bottom bezel, but it's definitely still a bezel - the once-rumored complete cutting of that hasn't panned out, it seems.

From a different Chinese source comes word that the smaller S9 will ship with a 3,200 mAh battery, a welcome 200 mAh bump from the S8. It's unclear if the S9+ will have a bigger cell than the S8+. The charger bundled with the S9 will allegedly be a 12W part, and the phone will support Qualcomm's Quick Charge 3.0 standard. Mass production for the new S-series duo is set to start in January, ahead of the recently revealed February announcement timeline.
