    I have a problem I'd like to ask you a question for.

    As I know now, and you probably also know, the real S9+ has a sled, which allows you to insert a SIM card and a memory card at the same time.
    With my fake smartphone, which I bought without much thought at a flea market, I can see the opening but I don't have that sled at my disposal.

    My question is if you could tell me more about the manufacturer by means of 2 attached pictures of the back of my phone in this mail.
    This might help me to get some information there.

    I hope that this is not too much to ask of you and thank you very much for all your help.

    With polite greetings !!

    A picture of where the SIM goes might be more helpful. If there's just an empty slot there, you're just missing the SIM tray. You can buy them ob eBay for about $2-$3.

    Dear Sir,

    As requested by you, I hereby enclose a picture of the empty lock.
    On the picture the lock is on the far right.
    If I have measured correctly it has a width of 7 mm.
    Do you think that an original sled (for sale on ebay as you said) could fit in the lock of my fake smartphone?

    Kind regards and thanks for your helpfake samsung s9+-20190621_201218.jpgClick image for larger version.

    The Sim card slot/tray is on the other end of the phone. You can use a paper clip to gently push into the release and the tray should pop out slightly for you to pull the rest of the way out.

    My guess is that's a speaker and microphone. The SIM card slot is on the top of the phone on the real 9+.

    I think it's an empty sim card slot because the OP posted it to show it..it's not the real thing so it could be on the bottom

    I think your right Mike , looks to wide to be a charger port.

    No... That's the port that the OP is trying to figure out if a Samsung sled would fit in there

    Yes, but there looks like a mesh inside it. I have experience with these fakes, and the ones I've seen all put the sim slot on the top or the side.
    The Samsung "sled" is also way bigger because it includes a pinhole for the tool. It's about 2x as wide as that speaker grill shown in the picture. Partly because the SIM is put lengthwise on the sled.

    Well the OP thinks it a slot and it's a fake and an unclear photo so who knows at this point and the OP hasn't responded after posting the photo.

    The OP posted a pic of the bottom of the phone. Even if the phone has a sim tray, that doesn't guarantee it's real anyways. I've seen videos on YouTube how the knock offs are getting amazingly similar to the original, down to minute details.

    The OP is also confused if he/she doesn't understand the bottom of that phone doesn't contain the sim tray, based on the picture alone.

    What if the OP is mistaken? The bottom of a legit S9+ looks like that in photos I found, and that "slot" is the speaker. That's why we need to see the top where the real SIM/SD slot should be. Think this may be legit phone and it's just missing the sled?

    For one the OP is not mistaken. While the positions of the holes are correct, the S9 speaker has a pillar in the middle when you look at the speaker from that angle. Plus the writing on the back is not as visible as what he shown on the photos.

    Source: I own an S9 and is using it to type this post.

    Edit: Here's the bottom of the real S9. The speaker slot has a pillar in the middle and you could see the mesh deep inside. The pictures the OP posted have rather shallow mesh.

    I agree chanchan, my s9+ speaker at the bottom is open no mesh . And the writing on the back below where the s9+ logo is etched barley visible while OP is highlighted big .

    You'd also notice that whatever is on the space of the heart rate sensor looks different.
