Fresh render of the Samsung Galaxy S9 has popped up on Slashleaks. It confirms the absence of dual cameras and shows a more ergonomically placed fingerprint scanner.
The design does not differ much from its predecessor, the Galaxy S8. The primary differences are the smaller chin on the front and the repositioned fingerprint scanner. The top chin features a myriad of sensors along with the front camera. The display seems a bit longer than the S8. The render shows three physical buttons, volume control, power and the dedicated Bixby button. On the bottom lies the USB Type-C port flanked by the 3.5mm jack and the speaker grill.
Earlier, a back case was reported as belonging to the Samsung Galaxy S9. The render shows a design that would compliment the case perfectly. The best part of this design is the new position of the fingerprint scanner. In the Galaxy S8, reaching the scanner was a bit of a task, which Samsung learned from and implemented a vertically placed scanner in the A8 and A8+. If the render is to be believed, the fingerprint scanner is actually placed in an accessible position. But since Samsung is yet to give any word on the design of the Galaxy S9, we suggest you take this news with a pinch of salt.
