These Galaxy S9+ case renders give us our best look yet at Samsung’s new flagship

Renders from case manufacturers can give us crucial tips on forthcoming smartphones, but they can often be red herrings.

However, if these enclosures from case makers Poetic turn out to be accurate, they give us perhaps our best look at the Samsung Galaxy S9+ handset yet.

The cases, which are already on sale (via SamMobile), show grey and silver models and the presence of the new dual camera array, as well as the amended positioning of the fingerprint sensor below the lenses.

All indications show the larger handset will have the dual camera feature all to itself, with the S9 retaining a single lens camera.

Other than that, there appears to be little aesthetic difference between the S8+ and the S9+, as floated by the renders from Poetic today.
