TL;DR
  • New leak suggests Samsung will let MWC attendees view the upcoming Galaxy S9 using augmented reality.
  • A Reddit user was able to tear down the Unpacked 2018 app and show the 3D models Samsung will use.
  • The models show four different colors, the Bixby button, the new fingerprint scanner placement, and more.

Samsung’s official unveiling of the Galaxy S9 at the Mobile World Congress 2018 is now only three days away. However, judging by the number of recent leaks, it may be getting worried that by the time the event actually comes around there won’t be much more to unveil.

The latest of these, from Reddit user /u/thesbros via XDA Developers, indicates that Samsung is planning to show off its new phone using augmented reality at the Mobile World Congress. The user was able to find the 3D models that Samsung is expected to use after tearing down the company’s Unpacked 2018 app (launched specifically for MWC 2018).

Features

These 3D models—examples from which you can see above—allowed the user to view the Samsung Galaxy S9 from pretty much any angle. While the pictures of the 3D models don’t really show much that is new, they do seem to confirm the options for four color schemes (lilac, blue, black, silver), the Bixby button, and the new fingerprint scanner placement.

Of course, the ability to access these 3D models will be beyond most people. However, if you can’t wait for the S9’s release, it is certainly worth taking a look at the pictures and remembering that the official announcement is only a few days away—check out the full set over at XDA.
