The recently leaked image shows the rear components on the upcoming Samsung’s flagships. The larger Samsung Galaxy S9+ features two vertical-mounted cameras with two 12-megapixel+12-megapixel camera sensors. The smaller Samsung Galaxy S9 features only a single 12-megapixel camera sensor. This proves the rumor that Samsung will be putting the dual camera on the bigger plus model only.

Also, Samsung changed fingerprint sensor location on their devices. The company faced a lot of criticism regarding their fingerprint sensor location last year. The people complained that the biometric scanner was too close to the rear camera lens. The leaked image also shows that Samsung has made the fingerprint position vertical with this year’s flagship phones. The company has placed the fingerprint scanner below the rear camera. This will make it easier for users to unlock the phone.

Evan Blass had also leaked the front part of the devices earlier. The Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ smartphones have almost the same design as the last years S8 and S8+ flagships. They look similar to S8 and S8+ with the infinity display and less than normal bezels. What’s more interesting is that Samsung has thickened the bezels on this year’s flagships instead of thinning them. This might have been done in order to increase the durability if the device.
Samsung has already confirmed it will be unveiling the new flagships on February 25, 2018. They will be unveiled at the Samsung Unpacked event in Barcelona, one day ahead of the MWC (Mobile World Congress) 2018.
