Based on various leaks such as one from the Samsung S Health app that show a new position for the camera and fingerprint scanner
on the back of next year’s flagship model, and a screen to body ratio that is expected to come close to 90%, a series of renders reveals what could be an accurate look at the Samsung Galaxy S9
and Samsung Galaxy S9+
. This year’s Samsung Galaxy S8
and Galaxy S8+
had the fingerprint scanner right next to the camera lens. That created a problem when users blindly searching for the fingerprint scanner to unlock their phone, would smudge the camera lens accidentally.For the 2018 model, Samsung has apparently placed the fingerprint scanner underneath the single lens of the Samsung Galaxy S9, and under the dual camera lenses that will be employed on the Galaxy S9+. The renders also show different colors for the back of both models including Midnight Black, Silver Titanium, Orchid Gray, Ocean Blue and Maple Gold.
Expected specs for the 2018 Samsung Galaxy S9 flagship include a 5.8-inch Super AMOLED screen. The phone will be powered by the Snapdragon 845 chipset in the U.S. and will feature 4GB and 6GB of RAM along with 64GB and 128GB of native storage. We could see the device introduced just before the 2018 MWC trade show in Barcelona, which opens on February 26th next year.
