As in past years, the mystery is all but gone for Samsung's upcoming Galaxy S9 flagship. The device is set to be unveiled this Sunday, 25 February, for Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, but a recent set of leaked images leaves little to the imagination.

As such, leaker de force Evan Blass is at it again, this time showcasing the back cover of the Galaxy S9, as well as shedding some details on the device's dual camera setup.

In order to differentiate the S9 and the S9 Plus, it appears that Samsung has opted for a better camera offering on the latter. To that end, it's reported that the larger phone of the two will be sporting a pair of 12 MP lenses on the rear, along with the ability to switch between f/1.5 and f/2.4 apertures depending on the shot. Up front there are a few interesting rumours too, with the 8 MP front facing camera said to record slow-mo videos at up to 960 fps.

Whether these will be enough to tempt current Galaxy S8 owners to upgrade, remains to be seen.
