Another leaked picture confirms single camera for Samsung Galaxy S9


We've already seen a couple of pictures showing Samsung's upcoming flagship, the Galaxy S9, and everything points to the phone having a single camera. Today, another photo of the handset popped up online and, once again, confirms Samsung prefers not to include a dual-camera setup on the Galaxy S9.

However, those who absolutely must own a flagship with dual rear cameras may have their preference satisfied since the Galaxy S9+ is said to feature such a camera configuration.

On the bright side, Samsung has finally repositioned the fingerprint sensor to a location where's much easier to reach – under the camera, not to its right side.

Samsung is expected to officially introduce the Galaxy S9 and S9+ in late February, but the flagships won't be available for purchase until March. Even so, that will be quite a head start for Samsung's top-tier handsets, which will probably be the only new important flagships that will sell for several weeks maybe.

The pixel showed you don't need a double camera

I dont think you should compare the pixel to any phone considering it has been plagued with issues for weeks now. XD

The issue isn't even related to the camera so your point is invalid.

It's camera will be outstanding. Samsung kills it in the camera section..in fact...Samsung kills it in every section. Carry on.

Yes.. If they get rid of yellowish tones, overexposion on front cam. Noisy low light videos. It needs better stabilization too.

Besides performance, app retention, and standby time.

Samsung make great camera. but definitely not the best one out there. X and Pixels are better this year.

I don't see why that huge opening would contain one camera only. Second, Google has proofed with Pixel that you don't need two cameras to achieve depth of field.

Updated headline... MASSIVE opening on back of phone that can clearly contain 2 cameras PROVES the S9 will only have a single camera. There we go, now it's more like a PA headline :)

It's one camera, with the FP scanner underneath. That's why the opening looks like it can "clearly contain 2 cameras."

Maybe you're right, maybe I'm right, maybe it's a hoax. Either way, a hole does not confirm anything. :P

They are two cameras with fps under screen. Who knows? We will see in February.

I will start my own rumor. Two cameras on the back because FPS will be under the front glass. Ok, now I sound like Bankz, LMAO

This is stupid, why not a secondary wide angle camera. S8 is basically an s7 with a "bezelles" screen. S9 is an s8 with a relocated fingerprint scanner. They're going down the apple road of no innovation. If you put in a headphone jack at least put in a quaddac. Camera is basically playing catchup to the pixel2. Try being innovative by managing slim bezels but still putting in dual front facing speakers. That would be a breakthrough. But nopeeee. There's really no reason why you shouldnt just buy the s8. Especially since samsung phones drop in price really fast. I wish they went the lg v30 road and by being samsung doing that better.
