Samsung Galaxy S9 has already been making rounds on the web for the rumoured on-screen fingerprint sensor. Now, a new leaked image on the web hints at the smartphone’s rear camera setup. The image, shared by Techtastic.nl website, claims to show the back panel of the upcoming flagship smartphone Samsung Galaxy S9.
In the image, we can see the alleged back panel of the smartphone sporting a cut out that although looks like a slot for dual rear cameras, but is actually said to house a single rear camera and a fingerprint sensor.
This is rather surprising as Samsung has already entered the dual-rear camera bandwagon this year with the Galaxy Note 8. Another interesting change mentioned is that the fingerprint sensor at the back will now be shifted below the rear camera instead of its side. Hence, the vertical cut out. However, since we cannot cross check the authenticity of the image, everything seen in the leaked image should be taken with a handful of salt. The final product may differ from what is shown here.
Samsung Galaxy S9 recently came into the news soon after Synaptics, the company that manufactures touch controllers, display drivers and more, announced that it has successfully made an on-screen fingerprint sensor. Since this tech was rumoured to come in Galaxy S series handsets previously, the reports were abuzz with Samsung Galaxy S9 including this feature. Synaptics even added that the technology is already in mass production with one of the top five smartphone manufacturers. It did not reveal the brand.
But later a popular analyst, Patrick Moorhead tweeted that he tested the on-screen fingerprint sensor developed by Synaptics, in a Vivo device.
It is worth adding that Vivo is also one of the top five smartphone vendors around the globe. This led us to believe that Samsung may come with a physical fingerprint sensor afterall. And because of the company’s ‘InfinityDisplay’ tech, the sensor will be placed at the back.
