Today we’ve had a look at the Galaxy S9 as leaked over the past few weeks as it measures up to the Galaxy S8. We’ve also taken out the Galaxy S9+ leaks and had them measured up against the Galaxy S8+, making for an all-out war of the step-up upgrades just before Samsung’s event. Is this half-step worth the big upgrade? How about if the number isn’t a half-step, but a whole number?
The Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S9 are quite likely going to be extremely similar in size and shape. They’ll be just different enough that you’ll be unable to use the same case and/or screen protectors as before – but they’re similar. The Galaxy S8 has dimensions of 148 x 68.1 x 8mm, while the Galaxy S9 is rumored to be 147.6 x 68.7 x 8.4mm.
The Galaxy S9 is reported to be just a tiny bit shorter, wider, and thicker than last year’s model. The same is true of the Galaxy S8+ and the S9+, both of which are similar in shape to the Galaxy S8/S9. These larger phones come in at similar size ratios at 159.5 x 73.4 x 8.1mm for the S8+ and 157.7 x 73.8 x 8.5mm for the S9+.
