Flagship phones from Apple and Samsung that were launched last year were rumored to come with under-display fingerprint scanner. Both the companies failed to commercialize the feature as they encountered tech difficulties. However, Vivo and Synaptics worked together to launch the Vivo X20 Plus UD as the world’s first phone with under-display fingerprint scanner. Early rumors from last year have claimed that the Galaxy Note 9 arriving later this year would be coming with under-display fingerprint sensor. However, fresh information suggests that the company won’t be bringing the feature on the Note 9 this year.
The probable reason why the Note 9 is unlikely to feature the in-screen fingerprint reader is that even though the South Korean company is working some of the world’s best fingerprint sensor providing companies like LSI, Qualcomm, Synaptics, Beyond Eyes and more, it is still struggling to overcome the technical problem of inaccuracy in detecting the fingerprint of the user when the sensor is placed under the display.
Samsung is pegged to begin the mass production of theGalaxy Note 9 in June. Its production has been reportedly delayed by four months as Samsung has been putting more efforts to bring this feature on it. An unnamed Samsung’s spokesperson has said that the in-screen fingerprint reader function will not be coming on Note 9 which suggests that it will be arriving with a rear-mounted fingerprint reader. It may arrive on the Galaxy S10 or Galaxy Note 10 next year.
