After Samsung confirmed that its new flagship smartphone would be unveiled next month, we finally get a first look at the upcoming Galaxy S9.

Via VentureBeat reporter Evan Blass, the first images of the Galaxy S9 and S9+ show a very similar design to the previous S8, but with noticeable upgrades.

The new Samsung flagship will feature a 5.8-inch S9 and 6.2-inch S9+, powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processors in the U.S. and China, while the rest of the world's models get a Exynos 9810 systems-on-chip. As for memory configurations, there will be 6GB RAM and 128GB of internal storage for the S9+, while the standard S9 feature a 4GB/64GB pairing like its previous generation.

As you can see in the image above, it sports an Infinity-style display, along with a several sensors up top that we don't exactly know what they consist of.

A back image of the S9 has not been revealed, but initial reports said it will sport dual cameras -- a primary 12-megapixel camera, switching between f/2.4 and f/1.5, paired with an additional one.

The fingerprint sensor at the back, which has been highly cricitized, is said to have been relocated to a more natural position below the cameras, while stereo speakers and 8-megapixel frontal cameras are also added.

The Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ is set to be unveiled on Feb. 25 at the Mobile World Congress 2018, with a release date on March 16.
