Galaxy Note 9 may not have the under-display fingerprint tech

There were reports that Apple could place an in-display fingerprint sensor in the phone but that didn't happen as the company didn't have the technology ready at that time.

After the Galaxy S9 duo, the next device to be anticipated by Samsung fans is the Note 9. 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.

KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has claimed in a note to investors that Samsung is likely not going to introduce an in-display fingerprint sensor with the Galaxy Note 9. However, as per the latest report, handsets like the Samsung Galaxy Note 8, Galaxy S7, Galaxy S7 Edge, Galaxy A7 (2017), Galaxy A5 (2017) and Galaxy A3 (2017) will get the latest Android OS soon. Samsung allegedly canceled this feature because neither the ultrasonic reader (by Qualcomm) nor the optical reader (by Samsung LSI, Synaptics and others) failed to meet the companys technical requirements.

While we are still in the process of testing the latest and greatest from Samsung, we thought of giving the camera a shot since that is the big new update.

Kuo still believes that Android makers (other than Samsung) will prefer face scanning over under display fingerprint readers.

Samsung doesn't seem to be in a rush this time to implement something totally new.

Samsung makes one of the best smartphone cameras, and the Galaxy S9's camera is sure to take better pictures than it's predecessor, the dual aperture camera intelligently identifies the scene and changes between the f/1.5 and f/2.4 aperture for low light and ultra bright scenes respectively. The old but proven fingerprint sensor still beats those newer technologies in reliability and security, says the analyst.

The Galaxy S9 feature was particularly helpful coming from the iPhone X, which I usually have to pick up to unlock since it doesn't have a fingerprint sensor.
