Rendered images of the Samsung Galaxy S9 have surfaced, showing the S9 with a single rear camera, the S9+ with a dual rear camera setup, and both with a new fingerprint sensor placement.

The Samsung Galaxy S9 is on its way. The next-gen flagship was featured in a rendered video over the week, with reports by Korean media outlets claiming the device would be announced as early as February next year, at the Mobile World Congress which will take place in Barcelona. Rendered images of the device have just been leaked, throwing some more light on what we should expect from the aesthetic department of the device.

Going by the images, the S9 looks to maintain the same design factor as the S8, in terms of the 18.5:9 aspect ratio. Curved edges are still present, and the top and bottom bezels look a bit smaller, although that may just be because the pictures are renders.

The major differences, however, are at the back. There's a current trend of dual rear cameras, so it's a bit surprising that the S9 features a single camera at the back. The larger S9+ sports two, though, which may mean that the difference in pricing between both devices extends even further in this generation. Another major difference is the rear fingerprint sensor's placement. The S8 and S8+ both received a lot of flak for their fingerprint readers which were positioned right next to the cameras. The S9 and S9+ make amends on that, however, as the sensor is placed right underneath the camera, or cameras in the case of the S9+.
