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...

I hope the S9 is actually like the right pic.

Rectangular FP looks better, match with the cameras.

I still prefer the 4th render but this is still nice.

Just F off with that edge screen. 2.5d corners is much more appreciated.
