- Dual camera setup on the rear
- Fingerprint sensor notched in screen real estate
- 3.5mm port shifted to bottom
Still intrigued by the design of Samsung Galaxy S8, S8+ and Note 8? Samsung is going to amaze you soon with the new Galaxy S9 expected to be launched next year . A new render of the Samsung’s Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus have surfaced the internet. This time by Waqar Khan and courtesy of Sean Mirza. The leaked render is somewhat similar to previously leaked renders and also it may be noted that Galaxy S9 is assumed to be revealed next year and the leaked renders are not official and do not represent the actual device.

The images show even thinner bezels with a slight notch at the bottom for placing the fingerprint sensor which is the most notable feature of the device. It represents the company’s bezel-less design. The notch is similar to the Essential’ Ph-1 camera notch that cuts into the screen real estate. The lower chin of the phone has been notched out and the fingerprint scanner has been placed into it. The placement looks very interesting if it was to be included into a real-world smartphone which would be much better than placing it next to the camera lens at the back.
Luckily, the headphone jack remains but will be placed at the bottom instead of on the top as seen on Galaxy S8 and S8+. The right side of the device houses a single button that is assumed to be the dedicated Bixby button while the volume rocker are placed on the left, taking clues from the Galaxy Note 8.
The device seems to sport a dual camera setup on the rear along with an LED flash. Samsung’s branding is located at the center of the back panel of the device. The front panel seems to house a dual camera setup too, lined up with all the usual sensors and a single earpiece speaker.
The images are not official and may vary from the actual device. Also, the device may be a completely different at the launch of time than the rendered smartphone. The designer is not associated to Samsung. Having said that, the design of the rendered phone looks amazing and is certainly something that we would expect Samsung to come up in their next flagship device.
