Samsung was expected to bring the ground-breaking under-display fingerprint sensor technology to the Galaxy Note 9. Ming-Chi Kuo, a credible analyst from KGI securities has revealed that the company will not include the technology on the upcoming device. It is worth mentioning that Samsung was rumoured to be working on its own in-display fingerprint technology.
In August 2017, KGI claimed that Samsung will include the traditional fingerprint sensor on its Galaxy S9 duo. However, the company was stated to include the under-display scanner on the Galaxy Note 9. According to Kuo, the company is likely to drop the idea of including this feature due to some “technological difficulties”. The problem basically lies with the screen protectors and different situations which can harm its accuracy.
After Vivo has already showcased the Vivo Apex smartphone at MWC 2018, it could be expected of Samsung to bring the feature to its flagship. On the other hand, if the feature makes some mistakes in biometrics, the flagship can backfire, just like the Galaxy Note 7. The company doesn’t want to make mistakes and we can’t really blame it for that.
Even Xiaomi, Samsung’s closest competitor in India has been rumoured to include the feature on the Mi Mix 2s. However, one can’t really be sure, for it’s still a rumour and nothing is confirmed as of now. Should Samsung necessarily go on with the in-display fingerprint sensor on the Galaxy Note 9?
