The smartphone is expected to bring huge gains in performance and graphics processing over the outgoing model. Thinner bezels and one more notable change is the placement of the fingerprint sensor. The Galaxy S9 will have fingerprint sensor below the camera setup making it easier to reach, this was a huge problem in Galaxy S8 cause everytime you unlock your phone the camera lens get smudges.

Speaking of the camera, Samsung is already teasing camera improvements for the Galaxy S9 with the invite reading “Camera, reimagined.” Rumors says that the Galaxy S9 featuring single rear camera setup and Galaxy S9+ offering dual rear cameras.
