Galaxy S9 fingerprint sensor – In the current Galaxy S8 (Plus) and Galaxy Note 8, the fingerprint sensor is placed directly next to the camera. This led to a lot of criticism among users, because the Kameralinse was often polluted by confusion. According to reports Samsung has taken the criticism seriously and will integrate in the Galaxy 9 the sensor elsewhere.
Galaxy S9: Fingerprint sensor centered on back?
When Samsung launched the Galaxy S8 (Plus) in April, many users expressed criticism about the placement of the fingerprint sensor on the back right next to the camera. By confusion, the Kameralinse could easily be contaminated. Also in the new Galaxy Note 8 the sensor is integrated at the same place.
According to rumors Samsung has worked on a solution to integrate the sensor under the display, but this was probably not implemented because of technical problems. Nevertheless, the manufacturer in the Galaxy S9 seems to place the fingerprint sensor but elsewhere.
According to reports from the portal XDA Developers and unspecified sources, the fingerprint scanner is not to sit in the Galaxy S9 to be expected for the spring 2018 no longer beside the camera. Supposedly Samsung wants the scanner in the middle on the back in the form of a rectangular positioned recess. This means that it is far enough away from the camera and more convenient and accurate to reach.
Still the new place is however not confirmed by the manufacturer. According to XDA Developers, the source of the information is unclear, therefore not necessarily reliable. So far, the Galaxy S9 specs are an infinity display with QHD + resolution (1440 x 2960 pixels), the unprecedented Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor, 4 gigabytes of memory and Android 8.0 Oreo.
