As we are slowly crawling towards the launch of Samsung Galaxy S9, there has been an increase in the number of rumors and leaks suggesting its design are also rising. Recently an industry insider from China has claimed that Samsung would be rebuilding the rear design of the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus which are expected to launch in the first quarter of 2018.
The Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ have received good response from the critics and public. However, one of the features of the Galaxy S8 duo that has been criticized largely is the placement of fingerprint scanner. Since it is placed very close to the rear camera, many users mistakenly touch camera lens every time they try to unlock their phone.
Possibly to avoid this issue on the Galaxy Note 8, Samsung has placed the LED flash unit and the heart rate monitor between the rear camera and fingerprint scanner.
This new leak of Galaxy S9 suggests that Samsung will make certain changes on the backside of the Galaxy S9 duo. S9 and S9+ are expected to come with improved dual rear cameras than the one present on the Galaxy Note 8. Samsung may also want to re-arrange the position of the fingerprint scanner on the Galaxy S9 duo. Samsung may also place the fingerprint a bit away from the dual camera system. The company may also reposition the LED flash and heart rate sensor to give Galaxy S series of 2018 a different look than older versions.
Rumors have also suggested that Galaxy S9 and S9+ will have model numbers of SM-G960 and SM-G965 respectively. The devices are expected to arrive with Snapdragon 845 and Exynos 9810 chipset variants. It is also rumored that Exynos SoC will be accompanied by neural engine processor with AI capabilities.
