Galaxy S9 won't have the notch design, it will still retain the same Infinity Display as the Galaxy S8 but the screen-to-body ratio will increase!

hopefully it will be something like MiMix 2. Where screen goes all the way to the top. They could find ways to make the front facing camera module there

Galaxy S9 might feature 3D Sensor on the front, that's the same as the 3D Sensor on the iPhone X (powering the Face ID)~

1. Move fingerprint sensor to the center of the phone. Such an awkward placement currently.
2. Give up the edges on the screen. Not of much use and hard to use the phone when you have one hand pressing on them.
3. Otherwise S8 is almost a 10/10.

User experience.

Too bad there won't be fingerprint scanner underneath screen. That would be mind blowing as iphone face Id is still not as reliable as fingerprint

Frankly, I don't find facial recognition satki at all. It's a waste of time to raise the phone up to my face just to unlock it.

Let's see what s9 can offer since the design should be 95% similar and only cutting away more bezel...

The Galaxy S9 might have slimmer bezels than the Galaxy S8+

http://www.hardwarezone.com.sg/tech-...zels-galaxy-s8

From article
".....The South Korean company is able to achieve it by eliminating the bottom bezel and making the top bezel narrower. As a result, the Galaxy S9 might have a screen-to-body ratio of 89% to 90%......"

"......Other than slimmer bezels, the Galaxy S9 is rumoured to sport a new camera system with "three-layered image sensor" for capturing up to 1,000 photos a second, faster iris scanner and facial recognition features....."
