There was a huge hype around the recently-released Samsung Galaxy Note 8 and Apple's flagships - iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X - over reports that the handsets would have fingerprint sensor embedded under the display, but it didn't happen much to the disappointment of gadget lovers. However, the requirement of using the OLED display as a light source for the optical sensor supposedly rules the company out.
The company hopes to deliver the similar solution in a long term like Face ID system of Apple which is expected to debut soon with the new iPhone X.
Samsung's #Galaxy Note 9 phablet is nearly a year away, but speculations about the company's upcoming device have increased on the internet.
The procedure is based on a modified boot image which can be flashed using Samsung's ODIN utility software, and you can re-flash the stock Note 8 software at any time (again, without tripping Knox). This matches what we've heard about the back-mounted fingerprint sensor returning to the upcoming Galaxy S9 lineup, so the Galaxy Note 9 would be the first "Galaxy" to feature the new tech. Samsung Group-owned Samsung LSI supposedly already shipped some sample components for an in-screen fingerprint sensor to Samsung Electronics, as did Korean firm BeyondEyes, Kuo's recent note claims. However, Apple came up with the facial sensor technology known as the FaceID for biometrics.
However, in this article, we have some valuable information for you, as we all know new A-series devices will be better than ever this time Samsung will add premium features to it which will also increase the price of the devices. The hopes are that Galaxy Note 9 will be equipped with this most advanced feature. Synaptics, which is an Apple supplier, isn't in the race.
So, Samsung seems to be working on introducing under-display fingerprint reader on the Galaxy Note 9.
