Samsung Galaxy S9's rear panel could get a complete makeover

Garry Little | 31 October, 2017, 00:45

As such, Samsung has already won the Galaxy Note 8 vs. iPhone X battle before it even started, as Apple will launch the $1,000 iPhone X on November 3.

Samsung has already invested a considerable amount of resources into fingerprint technology embedded in screens.

This is why Samsung may employ an entirely new design on the Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus. Sometimes users would accidentally place the finger on the camera lens.

Samsung started work on the Android 8.0 Oreo beta program for Galaxy S8 in September.

Samsung is likely to use the same size panes on the Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+. To draw a parallel comparison between Axon M and the upcoming phone of Samsung would be impractical because latter has a better R&D department as well as a much larger financial base to ensure that the product is not only successful but also adds value to the diversified portfolio of the company. Alternatively, Samsung might opt to make the 6GB RAM module a Galaxy S9+ exclusive unlike this year where some units of the Galaxy S8+ had 4GB RAM, but this is just a hunch.

Recent patent filings have indicated that Samsung has not dropped the idea of having an optical fingerprint scanner. GizmoChina speculates that Samsung could also reposition the heart rate sensor and the LED flash on the S9.

The glass back material is expected to remain the same, but we do believe that a dual-camera upgrade and a fingerprint position change is going to be mandatory to take the fight to the competition early in 2018. The US version of the handset will be powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 845 chipset, which will have its own neural engine to handle AI tasks. The new Galaxy Tab A will be available starting on November 1 and will be very affordable at only $229.99. If Samsung has learned anything from the Galaxy Note 7 fiasco, it is not to rush things.
