Going by the rumors that have surfaced over the last few weeks, we aren’t expecting a major design overhaul with the Galaxy Note9. A new leaked sketch of the Note9 shows that Samsung has shifted the fingerprint sensor on the rear below the rear camera module – the same way it did on the Galaxy S9/ S9 Plus this year.

That’s actually quite obvious and the right way moving forward. It is, however, Interesting that Samsung will retain its horizontal dual camera sensors instead of switching to a vertical alignment as in S9-series phones.
