What Is The Difference Between Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S9? (PART 1/ Design)
What Is The Difference Between Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S9?
There are minor differences to the physical size of these two handsets: the Galaxy S9 is fractionally smaller, but 0.5mm thicker, while the weight goes up a little. Both phones are IP68 rated for protection against dust and water.
Both give you glass front and back, curving into that central metal core and both are lovingly constructed for a premium result. One of the things that Samsung has tried to do is make the bezel of that display hide the top sensors a little better, but that’s about it.
The real difference is around the rear. The location of the fingerprint scanner next to the camera was an oddity on the Galaxy S8. It is now below the camera, so there’s better symmetry, but we also found it easy enough to hit first time.
