Design and Display

Besides the staggering similarity between the Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus and the Galaxy S8 Plus it is just a bit larger but still has the same screen size though.  It is also exactly the same with the smaller S9 model albeit it’s dual rear camera and larger size. There’s also the curved edges that many has been trying to imitate including Nokia’s new flagship, the Nokia 8 Sirocco smartphone.

Everything is pretty much the same as it is before with the large AMOLED infinity display with no bezels on the side.
