Samsung will be ramping up to the Galaxy S9 early next year, but that doesn't stop the 24/7 rumor mill from pumping away with Galaxy S9 rumors - with the 3.5mm headphone jack looking like it's around to stay, thankfully. We now have a look at the new logos Samsung could use for the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ smartphones.

The latest rumor about the Galaxy S9 is that it will feature the fingerprint sensor on a small notch, on the front of the phone, versus the absolutely stupid position it is on the Galaxy S8, S8+, and Galaxy Note 8. Samsung will reportedly make the bezel even smaller on the next-gen Galaxy S9 and S9+ by putting higher-end hardware inside, which will leave more room for the battery, and just enough room to throw in a fingerprint sensor on the front.

The way that Samsung can pull this off is by having a small notch that can be 'pressed-in' on the Super AMOLED display on the Galaxy S9, something you'd feel by running your thumb over the screen and 'into' the small 'fingerprint sensor button'. The in-display fingerprint sensor would be a big selling point of the Galaxy S9, something Apple couldn't pull off even with their new iPhone X (which has Face ID instead), and the tech wasn't ready to throw into the Galaxy S8 or Note 8 smartphones.

The Galaxy S9 on the other hand, isn't coming until April 2018 which will give Samsung and its partners enough time to get the in-display fingerprint sensor technology ready.
