After launching Samsung Note 8, there have been talks on the town about the rumored features of the upcoming Samsung Note 9. According to the news emerging from the rumor mills, the Samsung Note 9 will most likely ship with an under display fingerprint sensor.
In an article published on Business Insider, the company will not integrate the fingerprint sensor below the display in the upcoming Galaxy S9. The main reason is attributed to the production-related delays. However, Samsung will embed an under display fingerprint sensor in the Galaxy Note 9 expected to launch in August 2018.
The fingerprint sensor will be integrated with the Samsung Note 9 by making use of the AMOLED display as the primary light source. As per unconfirmed reports, the LSI and BeyondEyes have already started to ship prototypes same to the Samsung for testing prior to integration with the Note 9.
If Samsung decides to infuse an under display fingerprint sensor, it will create a revolution in the smartphone world. Nowadays, smartphones are manufactured with the fingerprint scanner either on the back or embedded onto the physical home button. The sensor placed under the display will surely create new benchmarks in the industry.
Interestingly, Apple iPhoneX was rumored to ship with a similar fingerprint sensor but the company had to ditch the plan due to manufacturing hurdles. The company’s technical team failed to come up with a proper solution and methodology for the integration of the sensor.
It remains to be seen as to whether the company will integrate a fingerprint sensor below the display in iPhone 9. Even though it is too early to speculate on the features of the next version, the company will most likely push several features.
While Apple has implemented Face recognition technology in the iPhone X, the Samsung hasn’t come up with such as a technology and adopts the traditional fingerprint sensor. We will continue to keep track of the developments related to Samsung Note 9. Stay tuned.
