The two most common placements of a fingerprint reader are at the front-bottom and the back. However, if you’re a design engineer at Samsung, you might think otherwise and decide to put right next to camera lens on the back so that users accidentally end up rubbing their fingertip on camera to unlock the phone. However, the scenario might change with the release of Galaxy S9.

The Korean technology giant is expected to reveal Galaxy S9 on February 25. But, due to tons of leaks, it doesn’t seem that much mystery is left to the S9. There are tons of leaked images and details circulating on the web, thanks to German website WinFuture and Redditors.

In the first look, the phone looks just like the current Galaxy S8 smartphone and the device hosts the ultra-slim side bezels and curve. There’s a new sound setup as well that allows earpiece to act as a second speaker.

A noticeable change comes in the form of a new fingerprint and camera setup found on the back of the device. It appears to move the fingerprint reader below the camera, which should be welcomed by the users. The size of the fingerprint reader is also a little bigger and more comfortable to reach.

Talking about the photography, the rear camera can come with the option to switch between f/2.4 and f/1.5 apertures. Both S9 and S9 Plus models will have variable aperture setup, but only Plus model will feature a dual camera on the back.
