Samsung Galaxy S9: leaked cases confirm fingerprint scar and rejigged cameras

A new leak has again shown off Samsung’s planned design tweaks for its Galaxy S9 and S9+ handsets.

The pair of new devices, which are due to launch in Barcelona on 25th February, are set to feature a rejigged camera and fingerprint scanner set-up.

Covers for the handsets have been spotted in Germany show off a larger cut-out for the Galaxy S9’s dual lens camera, as well as space for a fingerprint scanner below the shooter.

The Galaxy S9 covers have a smaller area for a single lens camera and the same fingerprint scanner space.

Last year’s Galaxy S8 was criticised for having the fingerprint scanner adjacent to the camera, making it harder to use.

The new cases include a special hyperknit model that mimics sportswear, as well as a new protective stand cover, allowing users to place their phone upright.

The latter is already available for the larger Galaxy Note 8.

Other rumoured Galaxy S9 specs include the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, Android Oreo and improved facial recognition, aimed at taking on the class leading Face ID found on Apple’s iPhone X.

Samsung is likely to release the Galaxy S9 in March, just weeks after its official launch.
