The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 is expected to release in the second half of 2018
Samsung Galaxy Note 9: Major tech giants, both Samsung and Apple, both missed the bus this year incorporating a fingerprint sensor. This is the reason why we have an awkwardly put fingerprint sensor 8 and possibly Apple ditched it all together, well, because there’s no explanation for poor design in the novels of Jony Ive. Since we’re already hearing plenty of rumors which 2018 flagship phones will sport an under-display fingerprint sensor, the latest of which points to the Samsung Galaxy Note 9, this can all change. Another report tips some of the features of the Samsung Galaxy S9.
Ming-Chi Kuo, an analyst with KGI Securities, is doing exactly what he does best once again and has now stated that Samsung’s following Note flagship may have such an “under-display optical fingerprint” technology once it starts in the second half of 2018. This was reported back in August this year. With smartphones ditching bezels entirely, this would be the perfect solution if manufacturers were to continue utilizing fingerprint detectors.
However, it appears to be a little more tricky to implement businesses have been attempting to have a crack at this for a while and than it seems today to achieve a formula that the industry adopts. May, LG developed a fingerprint sensor which sits in MWC Shanghai, Vivo introduced the very first smartphone with a fingerprint sensor based on the technology.
The reports say that there are and Samsung LSI have reported having sent samples. Egis is just another company in the running, who supplies fingerprint detectors for the phones of Samsung. Kuo considers that the detector that is under-display could be a stop-gap till Android OEMs can figure out how to match or surpass Apple’s Face ID execution.
Let’s not forget the Galaxy S-Series, Samsung’s bread-and-butter flagships with rumors Note 9. SamMobile has now reported that the Samsung Galaxy S9 will come in 2 flavors, the version numbers of which are reported to be SM-G960 for SM-G965 and the Galaxy S9 for its Galaxy S9+. Both smartphones will feature curved displays, exactly like the S8 series, and will also be expected to inherit the dual camera installation of the Galaxy Note 8. The report further states that Samsung might launch a brand-new Galaxy X, as a sort of a ‘one more thing’, which can be tipped to ‘fold-out’ to a size of a tablet computer-computer. We suggest taking the news about the Galaxy X using a pinch of salt, at least for now while the other rumors seem likely to happen.
