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.
Samsung plans to announce the phone at Mobile World Congress 2018 on February 25, which is a month from today.
Samsung’s confirmed the event on Wednesday with an invite to the Unpacked event in Barcelona.

The company has already teased the camera as a the headline feature of this year’s model. The camera has been “reimagined” according to the invite. We’re also expecting an improved screen, battery life and faster performance.
We’ll be live at MWC to see the unveiling of the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+. Stick with us for the initial hands-on impressions from Barcelona.
