    When Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus were launched, the smartphones created a stir in the industry because of their stunning design. Packed with Infinity Display, the Galaxy S8 duo is a treat for the eyes.

    However, despite all the praises, users were not too happy with the fingerprint scanner placement on the Samsung flagships. It is pretty difficult to unlock the phones in the first attempt because the biometric scanner is placed too high for your index finger to reach without adjusting your grip. Also, since the fingerprint scanner is placed very close to the rear camera, you may touch the lens accidentally.

    This is why Samsung may employ an entirely new design on the Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus. This information comes from a China-based industry insider who goes by the Twitter handle @UniverseIce. Unfortunately, the leakster has not elaborated on what changes should we expect on the backside of the smartphones.

    An earlier report had suggested that instead of a rear-mounted one, the Samsung Galaxy S9 duo will feature a front-facing fingerprint scanner. We even came across a patent filed by the company revealing the same.

    While the patent was filed back in 2016, Samsung may implement it in the 2018 models after receiving many complaints regarding the awkward positioning of the fingerprint scanner on the Galaxy S8 duo.

    Other than that, the Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus are also expected to feature a rear dual camera system. A LED flash and a heart rate monitor could accompany the camera module.

     

    Having said that, all of this speculations are based on guesswork. So we better wait for a few days for more details to emerge.
