Galaxy A91 renders suggest Samsung has settled on its new design language

The past few years have been tumultuous times for Samsung's mobile business and you can pretty much see that reflected in how it has significantly changed its designs in just two years. 2017 saw the much-criticized placement of the new rear fingerprint scanner which was relocated in 2018.

Google, Alphabet founders step down, Pichai now CEO of both companies
