Samsung Galaxy S9 to have Mobile Security feature below Rear Camera


For all you Samsung Galaxy S9 enthusiasts, here’s an update related to the mobile security feature in the upcoming mobile.

A leaked photo and some details on Google have revealed that Samsung’s Galaxy S9 model of handsets will have rear-mounted fingerprint scanner just beneath the dual lens camera. Although the “Off-Center” placement of the security authentication feature might prove awkward for some, it is said to get things right when they start to use it on a daily note.

According to a source from Samsung, S9 will have no screen-based fingerprint recognition. And instead, the security authentication feature will be moved to the backside of the phone, just beneath the dual camera.

The rear camera of Samsung Galaxy S9 is rumored to shoot at 1000 frames/second which will offer extremely slow motion videos to users. If this turns true, then it could easily take on the capabilities of Apple iPhone X and might also zoom past its camera features.

Earlier, Samsung Galaxy S8 had an Iris Scanner for security authentication. But now rumors suggest that the technology will be replaced by facial recognition in S9 which is similar to the Face ID introduction on Apple iPhone X(as said above).

As per the details available to our Cybersecurity Insiders, Samsung Galaxy S9 will have a 5.8-inch screen with a secure facial recognition integrated with 3D Sensing. The device will be water resistant i.e IP65/68 and will sport dual 16MP cameras at the rear and dual 12 MP front cameras.

Both the devices i.e. Galaxy S9 and S9+ will be available on display at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas next month. And Samsung is expected to launch the new mobile variants on a commercial note by the end of January, rather than its usual release date of March every year.

Rumors are rife that Samsung will also use the CES show as a display platform for world’s first folding phone.
