There has been a lot of discussions online about the design and the special features of the next-gen Galaxy S9 models during the past weeks and this type of news is just adding fuel to the fire.
However, a recent patent that was filed by Samsung with KIPRIS, South Korea’s trademarking organization, could suggest that an “old” feature could be re-implemented on the Galaxy S9 and S9+ models. I bet you figured it out already, but yes we’re talking about the placement of the fingerprint reader! If we’re to believe what the patent documentation is saying, then the Korean company could be working on a new fingerprint scanner placed in front of the device just below the display, under a small recess, offering super fast fingerprint recognition.
This could come as a big change to all Galaxy S Series owners, as the company’s latest models all had their fingerprint sensors placed on the back – at some awkward places If I may add. So far however, rumors suggest that the Galaxy S9/S9+ models will be equipped with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 SoC and 6GB of RAM, boasting the same 5.8-inch and 6.2 inch Infinity Displays respectively their predecessors have.
