Samsung Galaxy Note 9 is likely to launch next year; Galaxy S9 will miss out on in-screen fingerprint sensor
In-screen fingerprint sensor is a feature on which several smartphone manufacturers are working. The list includes two tech giants Apple and Samsung and both of them are opting for in-screen fingerprint sensors instead of dedicated fingerprint sensor buttons. Samsung’s galaxy Note 9 is likely to come with this feature and it also indicates the upcoming Galaxy S9 will miss out on the feature.
The Samsung Galaxy Not 9 is expected to be launched next year and the in-screen fingerprint sensor is going to be an interesting feature. This will give space for a larger screen as well as allow the tech brand to equip the device with a larger battery. Also, this feature will give Samsung a competitive stance to rival the Apple.
The American tech brand has already dropped the plan to introduce in-screen fingerprint sensor to the upcoming iPhone 8 flagship model that is scheduled to launch next year. Therefore Samsung doesn’t need to be worried about and hurry to implement the feature. In that case, the South Korean tech major will bring its Galaxy S9 flagship smartphone with rear positioned fingerprint sensor in 2018, just like the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+.
Speaking about the upcoming flagship Samsung smartphone Galaxy S9 series, it will come with some interesting features like advanced iris recognition, dual cameras. Also, there are chances that the device will come with rear positioned fingerprint scanner. However, in that case it will receive a different appearance compared to the upcoming galaxy S8 models. Speaking about the in-screen fingerprint sensors, not only Apple and Samsung, but several other tech brands across the globe are working on in-screen fingerprint sensors.
At the Mobile World Congress Shanghai 2017, Vivo and Qualcomm displayed how the in-screen fingerprint technology works. This indicates Vivo is working on the same feature and we may see the unique and interesting feature introduced in the Vivo smartphone in near future.
