Samsung Galaxy Note 9 Unlikely To Have Under Display Fingerprint Sensor

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is Samsung's latest flagship of Note series yet to receive Android Oreo update.

Local mobile carriers said they have started distributing the Galaxy S9 series phones to consumers. The reason being cited is that the ultrasonic and optical solutions don't meet the company's standards of employing a biometric technology.

According to Samsung's "Are we up to date" website in Turkey, the Galaxy Note 8 will be the first of the handsets which will get the Android 8.0 Oreo.

Though the in-display fingerprint sensors are in the initial stage, Kuo believes that these sensors will be associated with issues such as incompatibility with screen protectors and power consumption. That gives Samsung a lot more time to figure this technology out, so long as it's okay with Vivo maintaining the lead here. The manufacturer may reserve it for their flagship model Galaxy S10 set for launch in the first half of 2019. The Galaxy Note 9 will not bring in the in-display fingerprint sensor. The smartphone sports a 6.43-inch 2160 x 1080 18:9 OLED display with very thin bezels on top and bottom.

In all honesty, the camera on the S9 is quite good, but considering we have tested the Google Pixel 2 extensively, Samsung's new offering is not as good.

System S7 and S7 Edge will get the Oreo update on April 13, trailed by Galaxy Tab S3 on May 24 and after that the mid-go cell phone A7 (2018) on 25th of May. However, the analyst now says the South Korean company will cancel this feature. The latest Galaxy S9 features a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor and a new Intelligent Scan functionality that combines data from the facial recognition and iris scanner to recognize users.

This bold new prediction comes from KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. As of now, the Galaxy S8 has received more than RM600 off its original price since its launch 10 months ago, therefore if you aren't in a rush for a new smartphone, you might want to wait for just that. Apple says Face ID is far more secure than the Touch ID fingerprint sensor.
