CAD schematics highlight the miniscule design changes for the Galaxy S9

31 January 2018
The camera/fingerprint reader assembly on the back is a major change, everything else is more or less the same.

    Great, I wanted S9 to be a little smaler and wider, thickness is a non issue.

    Looks perfect, can't wait.

              I dont know why people complain the location of the fingerprint reader. I use the s8 phone one handed. When i place my thumb on the power button, my index finger naturally falls on the fingerprint reader without touching the camera. I power on the thumb, and unlock with the index. Now if the reader is below camera. I actually have to slip the phone up in an uncomfortable position to reach the sensor. Thats my opinion.

I know it sounds hypocritical, given that I have a Note8 with a 128GB microSDXC and Fast Wireless Charger, but I paid ~$550 for it after tax (T-Mobile Buy One Get One). I still miss some stuff about my OnePlus 5...

                    Not going to buy this phone if overpriced. Its not about money its about to teach lesson to company. See what happen to iphone X where the sales is dropping and apple is slowing down its production .

                        As expected. Odd number Galaxy S always pretty much the same from previous version. Should had a key factor differentiator.

                              [deleted post]They just did a complete redesign less than a year ago and you're going to whine about them standing still, while putting your support behind Sony, who continues to use the xperia design that predates the Galaxy S5?
                              The world is a strange, confusing place.

                                Seems to me that good ol` Sams will continue to sell S8 but packed in a new box with S9 logo on it..in some markets...lol
                                Guess many people won`t notice any difference betwen the two..

                                    These subtle differences in size just to make S8 cases incompatible with the s9

                                        No chance, i want to see oneplus crush samsung sales because oneplus devices are one of the best out there. Who cares about water resistancy, about iris scanning, about quadHD displays.
                                        I want something fast, till now, oneplus is the fastest android device, something slim and and a beautiful handset to watch at.
                                        I dno't want a blocky smartphone packed with features i dont even use
