Samsung Galaxy S9 looks stunning in a new leak, but don’t trust the video

is widely-tipped launch next month at the Mobile World Congress tradeshow.

Ahead of the announcement, Samsung has suffered a number of high-profile leaks.

Renders of the smartphone – as well as photographs of dummy units – have appeared online in the weeks before the launch.

Sources with knowledge of Samsung’s plans have also revealed details of the features expected to ship with the flagship handset.

And now a video purportedly showing the Galaxy S9+ in the flesh has been shared online.

The 24-second video clip appears to show the forthcoming entry in the Galaxy S range being handled by an anonymous user.

However, before you get too excited – the smartphone in the video is a fake.

Originally posted by Slashleaks, the video footage has been debunked.

Rather than revealing the all-new design of the Galaxy S9+, the video clip actually shows a Chinese clone handset, dubbed HDC S9.

On closer inspection, the bezels at the top and bottom of the display appear larger than those on the Galaxy S8 – let alone the upcoming Galaxy S9.

Elsewhere, the power button on the phone in the video appears to be abnormally large and a number of key Samsung apps are missing from the app drawer shown on-screen.
