According to leaks, Samsung Galaxy S9's fingerprint scanner will be below the camera, and not next to it as with the current Galaxy S8 series. The Samsung Galaxy A8 (2018) and A8+ (2018) are the best mid-range devices we have today. "These handsets also feature Samsung's first dual front camera with "Live Focus", tech website Sam Mobile reported. Both handsets are IP68 rated water and dust resistance.
