Samsung may return the fingerprint scanner to the front with the Galaxy S9

One year ago   |   By TechRadar

For the most part the Samsung Galaxy S8 is an improvement on the Samsung Galaxy S7 , but moving the fingerprint scanner to the back was arguably a change for the worse. However, a patent suggests it's one Samsung's looking to remedy for the Galaxy S9.
