Samsung Galaxy Note9 reportedly not coming with in-display fingerprint scanner

Back in August previous year, Kuo had said that Samsung would keep the rear-mounted fingerprint reader on the Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus, which turned out to be true. Well that's because Samsung is facing some "technological difficulties" in putting a fingerprint scanner below the display.

It's astonishing that how Samsung bears this disgrace of not updating its excessively charged leader to most recent Android update, now when 7 months have gone since Oreo authoritatively discharged and Google is outfitting to dispatch Android P. Moreover, the device features the social camera mode that enables the Galaxy On Max users to share their snaps instantly on social media sites with live stickers. Rumors have been circulating for nearly a year that the Galaxy Note 9 would feature an in-display fingerprint sensor. The smartphone will show, most likely in August of this year, but we can already guess what awaits us all the same Samsung S9 in a more rigorous design and with nearly identical innards, except that the display will do a little more. Kuo remains optimistic about the technology, though. As 9to5Google reports, Kuo says the feature "currently suffers from issues with screen protectors and various different environments affecting the success rate of the under-display fingerprint reader". According to the analyst, both ultrasonic and optical solutions have failed to meet Samsung's self-imposed standards.

While there are several new features introduced in the S9 smartphones, it's not all about what's now. He adds that he does not expect to see the mass market adoption of the technology until the first half of 2019. It was applied successfully in the Vivo X20 Plus UD. This is not the first time Microsoft has done this with Samsung's Galaxy S-series flagships.

The Note 8 had a decent camera upgrade so the Note 9 is likely to have a more minor camera bump, probably matching the dual-sensor 12MP+12MP rear-facing camera of the S9 Plus, together with the repositioned fingerprint scanner.

Kuo himself is not a believer of face recognition, no matter how many times Apple preaches it.

We spent more than a week with the Galaxy S9+ instead of the Apple iPhone X, so here are five things I like about the Galaxy S9 from the iPhone X.
