Rumour: Is this video of the Galaxy S9 ahead of its launch?
Or is it just another budget Chinese knock-off?
Samsung is all set to announce the Samsung Galaxy S9 at Mobile World Congress in just a couple of weeks, but already we've seen plenty of rumours circulate surrounding the South Korean manufacturer's latest premium flagship phone. For its part, all Samsung has done is confirm that it will launch the Galaxy S9 handset in February.
The latest is a Chinese video first spotted by SamMobile that purportedly shows a Galaxy S9 being tested for touch sensitivity.
It certainly seems to line up with rumours that suggest that Samsung is taking a very light touch indeed when it comes to redesigning the Galaxy S9, as it bears the same "infinity" design notes as the existing Galaxy S8 and Galaxy Note 8 handsets.
Then again, grains of salt in heaping quantities are well advised, as clone phones are rife throughout the Chinese market, and it's not as though this is an extensive video that definitively shows off a device identifying itself as the Galaxy S9.
We'll know for sure in just a few weeks when we report live from Mobile World Congress 2018 in Barcelona.
