We start with a sneak peek—X-ray intel provided by our co-conspirators at Creative Electron.

If you liked the S8, we've got good news—Samsung agrees with you. The design seems almost totally unchanged, save for the new (and better) fingerprint sensor location.

Our S9 cozies up to its S8 ancestor on the left (reassembled from our 2017 teardown) and its S9+ sibling on the right (still sore from our teardown last weekend).

Props to Samsung for keeping the headphone jack and expandable storage, all while maintaining IP68 protection.

Are these things new? No. Are they still good? We say yes.
