Samsung reported to skip in-display fingerprint sensor on Galaxy Note 9

Now comes word from KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo (via AppleInsider) that Samsung's next-gen phablet will, as it turns out, not feature an embedded fingerprint sensor in the display after all.

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

He says the the feature now suffers from issues with screen protectors and various different environments affecting the success rate of the under-display fingerprint reader, thus Samsung's reasoning for removing the technology.

In late 2016, we heard about the potential for Samsung to incorporate Synaptic's display-embedded optical fingerprint reader for the Galaxy S8, but that never came to be.

This means that at least for the time being, the Vivo X20 Plus U20 is going to be the only phone with an in-display fingerprint scanner. He believes the in-display fingerprint sensor is necessary for full-screen smartphone designs.

New smartphones from Samsung, Apple, Google, and LG all have nearly borderless displays that occupy almost the entire face of the device. Samsung's mobile business chief DJ Koh recently told media that the company would no longer rush things to be the first to market.

While there are several new features introduced in the S9 smartphones, it's not all about what's now. Those pinning their hopes on the Galaxy Note 9 for the in-display fingerprint sensor might be left disappointed this year.

Samsung doesn't seem to be in a rush this time to implement something totally new. Interestingly enough, that report claimed that Samsung is still actively researching ways to make a device with an embedded fingerprint sensor a reality.

However, Synaptics' Clear ID FS9500 isn't good enough for Samsung.

As with many other Android phones, you can also choose to add more storage to the Galaxy S9 by purchasing a microSD card, which may be useful for those who download a lot of full-length movies or frequently shoot 4K video on their phones. The Korean company wants the biometric technologies to be fast and secure enough to be used in highly sensitive cases such as governments and military.

The report reveals that the feature malfunctions when screen protectors are involved, or when the phone is placed in certain environments.
