Samsung is expected to announce the Galaxy S9 in a few weeks at Mobile World Congress on February 25th, and the latest leak from Evan Blass on Twitter is giving us our best look at the phone yet. Along with a first glimpse at a new Lilac Purple color, the images give us a good look at the redesigned fingerprint reader that places it below the camera sensor, one of the major flaws of the S8.

Also seen in the new picture is the two-camera module that the larger S9 Plus will have, which looks to be a vertically oriented module similar to the iPhone X. Samsung’s tease highlighted that the devices would offer improvements to the camera, but we’ll have to wait and see what they’ve got up their sleeve beyond the usual annual upgrades.

Per Blass, the S9 will launch in four colors: Midnight Black, Lilac Purple, Titanium Gray, and Coral Blue, although its unclear if all four of those colors will be available in all regions.
