Samsung Galaxy Note 9 probably won't feature an in-screen fingerprint sensor

Samsung Galaxy Note 9 probably won't feature an in-screen fingerprint sensor

Well that's because Samsung is facing some "technological difficulties" in putting a fingerprint scanner below the display. As is the case with the latest insights from KGI's analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who reports that Samsung's implementation of an under-display fingerprint reader won't be ready in time for the Galaxy Note 9 later this year. Previous Samsung models, including the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S7, and many other Android phones, have come with this always-on display feature.

Kuo specifically said that it's "likely" that Samsung will decide to drop the feature for the Galaxy Note 9, so there's still a little bit of chance that the South Korean phone maker may still move forward with including it. With the Galaxy S9, I wasn't forced to type my passcode if I didn't want to use facial recognition, rather just used the fingerprint sensor. Only few weeks ago, we saw a report from Mobile Syrup that said that Samsung could place the sensor at the rear of the phone, right below the camera module. Note 9 will copy this feature.

At some point in time, the Galaxy S8, Galaxy Note 8 and Galaxy S9 were all rumored to come with a fingerprint scanners under the display. The feature does not work well with screen protectors, and "environments" which results in a less than stellar success rate. That's going to be followed quickly by Android P, maybe even by the end of the year.

Jeff Johnson, an analyst at Arthur Wood Research, wrote in a note sent to customers that the Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus preorders for are disappointing.

Samsung executives have hinted that Bixby 2.0 is coming down the pipe and may well launch alongside the Note 9 device in the summer - so look out for more intelligent responses to your questions, a more natural flow of conversation, and probably a handful of extra talents on top.

The Galaxy S8 received a price cut of RM200 shortly after a month of its sales launch past year, while this doesn't happen at retail stores, do expect retailers over at Lazada and 11street to undercut each other by lowering the prices of the Galaxy S9 or offering better free gifts.
