Apple iPhone X may be dominating the news cycle, but Samsung is ready to come out all guns blazing. We already know the company has plans for a radical folding Galaxy X, now we also know it is planning a massive redesign for the upcoming Galaxy S9

The most obvious way the Galaxy S9 would change in a big way would be with the addition of dual cameras, as seen on the excellent Galaxy Note 8. With dual camera pressure from Apple, LG and Huawei as well as Google’s superlative Pixel 2 camera, this is nailed on in my opinion.

But there are two other areas where Samsung could also greatly improve the back of the Galaxy S9 Plus. Firstly it must move the fingerprint sensor into a more central, easier to reach position. Secondly it should copy Google’s Pixel 2 smartphones with a mix of aluminium and glass – the former adds durability, the latter is necessary to retain wireless charging which (unlike some) Samsung does right.

Samsung will come under tremendous pressure in 2018 as Apple finally fixes its iPhone X stock problem, but it looks like between the Galaxy S9 and slightly crazy Galaxy X the company is up for the fight…
