Alleged Galaxy S9 CAD drawings depict dual camera, new finger scanner placement
We did hear that the "back of the Galaxy S9 will change a lot" from a leakster with a good track record last week, and, lo and behold, today's alleged CAD renders of the handset are seemingly confirming this claim. Not that it comes as any surprise that the Galaxy S9 may follow in the footsteps of the Note 8, and be launched with a dual camera, but it was the sensor placement that was a mystery, and we even made a few renders with horizontal or vertical dual camera design, based on various rumors.
If these computer-assisted design schematics prove to be credible, then it seems that Samsung has picked the vertical placement for the dual camera, which is pretty great, as this way the finger scanner goes beneath the camera, and right smack in the middle of the handset's back, where it belongs. Other than those rear changes, called upon by the eventual dual camera cameo on the S line, we can clearly see an Infinity Display design carryover at the front, complete with screen side curves and minimal top or bottom bezels, just like on the S8.
Thus, the biggest gripe about the Galaxy S8 design - its unorthodox fingerprint reader placement - would be avoided, and the future S9 users will also take advantage of the one of the best camera sets out there, provided that Samsung has carried over the Note 8 pair directly, too. What do you think?
