Samsung’s Galaxy S9 will feature a dual lens camera, with a tweaked design that relocates the rear fingerprint scanner to a more convenient position compared with this year’s Galaxy S8.
That’s according to a leaked image of next year’s flagship Samsung smartphone inside a toughened case.
The image is what's called a render and is based on insider information about the S9 that was supplied to accessory-manufacturer Ghostek, which enables it to ensure their products are compatible with Samsung's forthcoming phone.
If we can believe what we're seeing, the Galaxy S9 will be the first Galaxy S series phone to feature a dual lens camera, with a vertical set-up to match that found on Apple’s iPhone X.
It also appears that Samsung is set to respond to customer feedback by shifting the fingerprint scanner to a more central position, after complaints from S8 users that it was placed too close to the camera lens.
The renders also point towards the continued inclusion of an analogue headphone slot, a feature which Apple, Google and HTC have ditched over the past year in an effort to push users towards wireless headphones.
The Galaxy S9, and its S9+ stablemate, are expected to launch ahead of Mobile World Congress, which takes place in Barcelona next February.
