From what we’ve seen so far, the biggest Galaxy S9 design change might be its new camera layout. Samsung is expected to switch to a vertical camera layout for the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+. The fingerprint sensor will be positioned underneath the sensor as we’ve seen in countless leaked renders.
A couple of Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ case renders have surfaced online. They also highlight the new camera layout that we’ll be seeing on these devices.
The curious case of Galaxy S9’s camera layout
Countless rumors and reports about the Galaxy S9 have revealed that the handset is going to have a new camera layout. The vertical layout will have the fingerprint sensor positioned below the sensor. The heart rate sensor will also be repositioned.
The leaked Galaxy S9 renders we’ve seen so far have highlighted these changes. As previously mentioned, these are likely the biggest design changes that we’ll see on the new flagships.
The Galaxy S9+ is said to feature a dual camera system and the handset’s case render reiterates that possibility. The position of the sensors remains the same on the larger handset.
It’s still a bit early for case renders to surface. We’ll surely see a lot more of them in the days to come. Samsung is expected to unveil the Galaxy S9 at MWC 2018 in February.
