Samsung Galaxy S9 revealed early via accidental carrier leak in Romania

There's only a couple of weeks to go until Samsung officially reveals the Galaxy S9 and S9+ flagships. However, It would seem that the Romanian division of Orange, one of the world's largest mobile carriers, has jumped the gun a bit and revealed the blue variant of the Galaxy S9 quite a bit earlier than its official reveal by Samsung later this month.

Although the link to the page is now no longer working, you can still view the page as it was earlier this weekend thanks to web cache. What is clear from the cached page is that the specs are mainly placeholder details, since they aren't all correct.

The Galaxy S9 will indeed stick with the 5.8-inch Quad HD OLED ‘Infinity Display’ introduced with the Galaxy S8, and also introduce a rear camera with a super fast aperture (as previously leaked). Predictably the product page also mentions support for 4G+, WiFi, Bluetooth and GPS.

However, there are a few inaccuracies, such as the chipset being listed as a Exynos 8895, when that was inside the Galaxy S8, and 3D Touch is specified for the display when no pressure sensitive screen technology is expected, and perhaps more importantly, that’s an Apple brand name.

We've learned quite a lot about these devices already, and the focus, (if you'll pardon the pun) for this years release has mainly to do with the cameras; it is even plastered across their teaser graphics as seen above. The Galaxy S9 and S9+ will be available from March, so we don't have too long to wait now.
