Both S9 and S9+ should have it. I always buy the bigger one, but I guess now they want to make a more significant difference between the two, not just physical screen size since even the resolution is the same. They are not officially announced yet, but I guess they will have one more little ace in the pocket to make the + more important than the standard one.
I've a S8 and I'm eagerly waiting for the S9 but if the smaller version won't have dual camera, it can be a deal breaker for me. I'm not going to buy the bigger S9+.
really hope this will not be the final product. its thicker and same boring design.
Things I would love to have on the S8 and S8+
-Quality dual stereo speakers with the removal of headphone jack
-Braided and study usb c connector for 3.5mm jack and for charging (not like apple's flimsy ones)
-Dual camera (already confirmed)
-Official setting to remap Bixby button
-Better RAM management
-128GB storage option

Performance wise - S9 will hands down be faster and overall better phone. Estethically - not if you ask me, but it's just my personal opinion. Btw don't you agree that it sucks that you have to buy S9+ to get dual camera? What about people who prefer compact phones or have small hands?
Btw - even if I had dual camera, I doubt I would benefit much out of it, since my photographing skills are "Point and shoot"...

As expected. Samsung is really a follower, I mean copycat. Copying iPhone. Single cam for the regular and dual-cam for the plus version. What a shame Lol.
My S8 is awesome, I know S9 will be even better, but I prefer smaller device, and it sucks that you need to get S9+ to have dual camera, and I actually prefer fingerprint scanner position on my S8 over the one on S9. I also prefer it being thinner.
But thumbs up for S9 having a HEADPHONE JACK :D
But S9 will have faster processor, probs better camera... and on and on. And anyways I don't plan on buying another phone for at least few more years, because I don't even use potential of my S8 fully, and I know it will take years until this phone gets outdated, slow and laggy...
I notice the S9 still has the curved screen and still doesn't implant the on-screen fingerprint scanner.
Slim like Iphone do they plan multiple batteries to add inside like Apple X?
It looks like Samsung S5 from behind.
Forward is less ugly than S8 but still looks really bad.
As expected S9 will be unveiled early in next year so Shamesung will have more time to work on Samsung X.
But no matter how they try they never be as good as chinese phones.
If we compare specs and price Shamesung barely touching a tail.
