Recent reports about the Galaxy S9 have suggested that Samsung is going to address a customer pain point of the Galaxy S8. The fingerprint sensor placement on the Galaxy S8 bothers quite a lot of people. They would have preferred if Samsung has positioned it in the center of the back and not up alongside the rear camera. Samsung is expected to adjust the positioning for the Galaxy S9 and it may even source its fingerprint sensors for the upcoming flagship from a new supplier.
The reports about Galaxy S9 design changes suggest that the fingerprint sensor of the upcoming flagship smartphone is going to be placed below the rear camera. That’s going to make it a bit easier to reach.
A new report out of South Korea suggests that Samsung has been looking for new suppliers to source the Galaxy S9’s fingerprint sensor from. This might reveal that the Galaxy S9’s fingerprint sensor will be different in terms of shape and size. The company will also want some performance gains as well if it’s thinking about switching suppliers.
Samsung hasn’t confirmed anything about the Galaxy S9 at this point in time. The company is expected to unveil the Galaxy S9 at the Consumer Electronics Show 2018 in January before releasing the handset in March.
