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

Samsung-Galaxy-Note8-Review-Note-is-back-28

"While we previously predicted that Samsung's new flagship Galaxy Note 9, due out in 3Q18, will come equipped with an under-display fingerprint recognition function, we now believe Samsung will cancel this feature on Note 9 because both ultrasonic - provided by Qualcomm - and optical - provided by Samsung LSI, Goodix, Egis, and Synaptics - solutions can not meet Samsung's technical requirements", said Kuo.

Needless to say, there aren't any new features included in the release - and that's because the Galaxy S9 ships running the latest version of Android 8.0 Oreo, complete with a number of added tools, such as AR Emoji and Bixby.

Kuo also said that Samsung is still facing some problems with putting an in-display fingerprint scanner on the Note 9.

A few days back, Samsung's unannounced Galaxy S9 smartphone was benchmarked with a list of its alleged specifications. The only phone maker that has actually brought a smartphone with an under-the-display fingerprint scanner to market is Vivo, but its X20 Plus is now only available in China.

Holding serve to level at 5-5, Williams broke in the next game, letting out a scream and clenching her left fist as Diyas netted. Also in Williams' box were her mother Oracene, sisters Lyndrea and Isha, her agent, and her coach Patrick Mouratoglou.

It looks as if the upcoming Galaxy Note 9 may not sport a fingerprint reader underneath the screen after all. It will break down the launch period and to redesign the phone from the scratch will require more men power and technicians at the same time.

In-display fingerprint scanners are quite new. 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.

According to Kuo, more and more Android smartphone vendors are looking into 3D-sensing technologies.

The report notes that, while a pilot production run is likely to take place early next year, the Galaxy Note 9 likely will make its official debut in early to mid-August next year.
