In terms of design, not much seems to have changed from last year’s Galaxy Note8 but that isn’t to say there are no differences. The first major difference is the position of the fingerprint scanner which is now right under the cameras instead of to the right. This makes it easier to reach.

The dual cameras are also of different sizes. As shown in the image, the sensor on the right is significantly bigger than the one on the left. To the right of the camera sensors is a LED flash and blood pressure sensor.
