Samsung is well-known for its launch of smartphones with advanced technology. Although the Galaxy Note 7 turned out to be disastrous, users still favor the handsets manufactured by the company because of their premium design. The latest news is that the Samsung Galaxy S9 is expected to release in early 2018 and will not be equipped with an in-display Fingerprint Scanner.

Pressure touch technology

There are talks on the town that the fingerprint sensor will be pressure sensitive. According to sources, the new technology will be integrated with the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 and not Galaxy S9 series.

However, the company could embed the new technology with the Galaxy S10 series slated for release in 2019.

Patent filed

There are reports that Samsung has filed a patent with KIPRIS with diagrams for the upcoming pressure-enabled fingerprint sensor inside the display. As per reports emerging from the rumor mills, the company had successfully developed the required technology for the in-display fingerprint. The forthcoming Note 9 will be the first handset to ship with the technology.

Previously, the rumors mills had predicted the integration of the new feature in the Galaxy S9 series. However, a tweet from a former Samsung executive revealed the fact that the new fingerprint scanner will ship with the Galaxy Note 9 expected to ship in August 2018.

Recently, Ming-Chi Kuo, an analyst with KGI Securities also disclosed the availability of the new under-display optical fingerprint technology with the Note 9.

Problem with brightness

Even though Samsung had developed an optical fingerprint sensor with the Galaxy Note 8, the product team had to abandon it due to collision with the brightness of the display.

The problem with the Galaxy Note 8 was that the fingerprint scanner area appeared brighter when compared with the rest of the display. It seems that the production team had worked hard to recreate the technology behind the new fingerprint sensor.

In terms of specification, the 9th edition of the Samsung Galaxy Note will ship with a bezel-less Infinity display, 6GB/8GB RAM, 128GB/256GB internal storage loaded with Android 8.2 Oreo upgradeable to Android P.

In addition to an enhanced S Pen, the smartphone will also bear an improved camera. We can expect 256GB default internal storage in the Note 9 due to changing technological trends.

That said, the above facts should only be accepted with a pinch of salt since there is no official confirmation. We will continue to track the developments surrounding the Note 9. Stay tuned.
