As we get closer to the Galaxy S9 series launch (February 25), we are hearing a lot of rumors of the Samsung's new Android flagship. As per latest leak, we have come to learn that there will be four colour variants of the phone.
Acclaimed Twitter tipster Evan Blass (aka @evleaks), who has a pretty neat track record of accurately predicting almost all tiny details of marquee phones, long before the official launch. He has revealed that the Galaxy S9 and the S9+ will be coming in Midnight Black, Lilac Purple, Titanium Gray and Coral Blue.
To corroborate his claim's authenticity, he has posted the pictures of gorgeous looking Galaxy S9 and the S9+ in Lilac Purple, which was never been part of color schemes in previous S series or Note edition for that matter.
The new Samsung devices look stunning in the new pale violet shade and the Infinity Display design on the front makes it all the more visually appealing compared to out-dated designs of rival brands (except the Xiaomi Mi Mix series).
The leaked images also confirm another rumor that has been floating around the Internet for several months, which is about the primary camera and fingerprint sensor placements on Galaxy S9 series.
The generic Galaxy S9 will have just one primary shooter on the back, whereas it's bigger sibling S9+ is expected to house a dual-camera sensor on lines of the Galaxy Note8.
Also, the fingerprint sensor, which was aligned horizontally beside the camera module, is now translocated below the camera, almost in the center of the back-panel which makes so much sense, as the users will be able to reach the biometric sensor easily and also avoid accidentally touch the camera lens.

As per the latest reports, the upcoming Galaxy S9 (5.8-inch) and S9+ (6.2-inch) are said to house 3,000mAh and 3,500mAh battery, respectively.
Like previous years, the 2018-series Samsung Galaxy S9 (S9+) series, depending on the region of sale, is expected to come with two variants, one a 10nm class Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 (in the US, China, and select countries) or Samsung's 10nm Exynos 9810 series (in India, Europe, and others).
As for the memory configuration is concerned, the standard Galaxy S9 will be offered in two options 4GB RAM+64GB storage and 4GB RAM and 128GB storage, whereas the bigger screen version Galaxy S9+ will be available in 6GB RAM+64GB storage, 6GB RAM+128GB storage and 6GB RAM+256GB models in major markets across the world.
Word on the street is that Samsung has plans to release a limited edition Galaxy S9+ with 6GB RAM and massive 512GB storage in select markets.
Rumour has it that the Galaxy S8 successor will have variable aperture setting options, which allows users switch between f/1.5 and f/2.4 apertures depending on the lighting environment. The former will allow the camera to absorb more light during indoor or dark conditions, while the latter can be used during bright sunny conditions.
The standard Galaxy S9 is expected to boast 12MP primary camera on the back and 8MP front-facing camera. However, the S9+ is said to house dual-camera, but there is no information on the MP count. It will come with the same 8MP sensor on the front, as seen in the generic model.
