Microsoft now selling its own edition of the Samsung Galaxy S9

Amazon Deal Of The Day

Having an in-display fingerprint sensor on the Galaxy Note 9 would have been a great selling point, but a rear-mounted one shouldn't necessarily take away from the device as a whole.

In-display fingerprint sensors are still very much in their infancy, and Kuo believes issues like power-consumption, incompatibility with screen protectors, and more will keep Samsung at bay for a while longer.

Kuo specifically said that it's "likely" that Samsung will decide to drop the feature for the Galaxy Note 9, so there's still a little bit of chance that the South Korean phone maker may still move forward with including it. 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. He claims that it is "key for full-screen designs" and that facial recognition - as seen in the iPhone X - can not fully replace fingerprint scanning. Instead, it will introduce new products and technologies when they are ready.

Samsung may or may not choose to implement the sensor in 2019. It means the next year's Galaxy S10 (or whatever it's called) could be the first Samsung flagship to offer an in-display fingerprint sensor. Vivo uses Synaptics' Clear ID FS9500 in-display fingerprint sensor in its smartphone. It was applied successfully in the Vivo X20 Plus UD.

Recently, Samsung cut prices for some its other smartphones as well like- Galaxy J7 Pro, Galaxy J2 Pro, Galaxy J2 (2017), Galaxy On7, Galaxy A8+ etc. Security is the biggest question mark on this nascent technology and is also one of the Samsung's biggest concerns as it positions its phones as something that can be used in highly sensitive cases, like governments and military. There was a similar rumour about iPhone X before its launch.

Kuo himself is not a believer of face recognition, no matter how many times Apple preaches it.
