Samsung has a big update planned for the security features built into its upcoming Galaxy S9.

Recently we reported about the renders of Samsung Galaxy S9 with a better infinity display and new camera design. Fortunately, the feature is backed up by other authenticating technologies such as fingerprint scanner along with the usual pattern and PIN matching tech. The glass sandwich design is also expected to continue with the next series of Samsung S series smartphone along with IP68 rating and 3.5 mm headphone jack.

The same three biometric features were also made available in the Galaxy Note 8 released earlier this year. So, the screen to body ratio of the Samsung Galaxy S9 is expected to be around 90 percent, which is a 10 percent improvement over the Samsung Galaxy S8. That said, the sensor on the S9 isn't likely to be a revolutionary development over its predecessor, the S8. The 2018 flagships will include 4 gigabytes (GB) and 6 GB of random access memory (RAM), depending on the variant, while the performance will receive a significant boost, thanks to the newly-launched Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chip. Which means both the sims slots can support 4G at the same time instead of 2G / 3G in the secondary slot.

Cancer patient gang-raped, seeks help from commuter who rapes her again
A 14-year-old girl, suffering from blood cancer, was gang raped by two youngsters in the state capital on the weekend. She was sent for a medical examination and police contacted a social organisation to counsel the traumatised girl.

The most recent speculations suggest that the Galaxy S9 would come with smaller bezels, especially at the bottom. There's now no new information about the sensor that the rear camera will use, but it will have to be seriously impressive to make up for the loss of performance that a dual lens setup adds.

The back of the phone also houses a 16MP camera. The company is most likely to solve the battery issues on the upcoming flagship smartphone.
