Galaxy S9 design possibly hinted by sketchy CAD leak

Home / News / Galaxy S9 design possibly hinted by sketchy CAD leak

We recently asked our readers about the changes that they would like to see in the Galaxy S9 design. Most of you just want Samsung to stick with the impressive design that it introduced with the Galaxy S8. A sketchy CAD leak has surfaced online today and it might possibly give us an early glimpse of the Galaxy S9 design.

One can understandably raise questions about the authenticity of these images given the very low resolution and the lack of any clear indication that this is indeed Samsung’s next flagship smartphone.

The Galaxy S9 will be quite similar to the Galaxy S8 from the front if this leak is believed. We already expect the Infinity Display to be present. Samsung might make the bezels even slimmer to give it a more sleek look. It looks like Samsung won’t be doing away with the physical Bixby button after all.

The company might switch things up a bit at the back. We can see a vertical dual camera system with a fingerprint sensor underneath. Several reports have already claimed that the rumored in-display fingerprint sensor isn’t coming to the Galaxy S9.

It’s likely that the handset’s fingerprint sensor will be located at the back. Since the Galaxy Note 8 has a dual camera system it’s not that difficult to believe that the Galaxy S9 will get it too.

This leak doesn’t really make any groundbreaking revelations about the Galaxy S9 design, besides, Samsung isn’t rumored to make any major design changes to the handset anyway. Even if these CAD images are fake they aren’t setting any unrealistic design expectations from Samsung’s next flagship smartphone.

Fake. In addition to what @BIRANSAHIN said, this isn’t the design profile of the Galaxy S series. The S series is always slightly arched on the top and bottom, not just the corners, part of its iconic design. The design you’re showing is closer to a Note, and not quite so even. You guys always publish anything and everything. Those who know the design aesthetics of Samsung devices will know if a leak is legit. Lots of your readers, myself included, immediately recognised the real leak earlier this year of the S8 even when the fingerprint scanner was one the… Read more »

Fake or not, looks more refined than the S8.

No way samsung will keep the fingerprint sensor anywhere near the cameras after the flak they have gotten for the s8 series. Personally I got used to it but still smudged the camera lenses once in awhile. Just put it in the center away from the lenses where everybody else does and call it a day.

Love the Note 8 but hate it’s fingerprint scanner location. I really hope it’s relocated to the front for the Note 9

Tbh won’t be surprised to see the general shape of the phone to look like the s8 with smaller boarders on the top and bottom. As for the design of the camera and FPS at the back … I think this is still up in the air but I can see why Samsung want to keep these modules together with the camera. As this will allow for space saying and placement of the battery and other internals. Personally don’t mind the s8 FPS and not had any issues over the last 5+ months with it. Pretty natural position with a… Read more »

Look at that drawing logically. Everyone knows the issue with the fingerprint scanner beside the camera on S8. On the Note8 the flash between to scanner and the camera solved that problem, at least for me. Now if this drawing is correct, you are guaranteed to smudge the lower camera EVERY time you scan your print. This is so bad it is surprising that we would even give this any publicity whatsoever. Maybe it’s because I work in industrial design it’s easier for me to spot, but honestly anyone with an ounce of sense will see this is fake.

But it is how the vast majority of OEMs have their FPS placed on the back…

My point is not about the scanner being on the back..That’s fine. My point is that in the cad drawing it’s right under the camera, so every time you scan your finger you are guaranteed to smudge the lens. The fingerprint scanner will not be there. It will either be in the same place as now, or much lower down, and less chance….under the screen, but that’s probably not ready yet. Personally I think it will be the same as Note 8 with the flash in between.. I mostly use the iris scanner anyway, very rarely I use fingerprint.
