Samsung would have abandoned the idea of integrating a fingerprint sensor under the screen of its future Galaxy Note9. The indiscretion comes from Ming-Chi Kuo, an analyst with often infallible sources.
Ming-Chi Kuok usually shares rumors related to Apple but occasionally he does not disdain to be interested in other manufacturers. Prior to the dispatch of the Galaxy S9, for instance, he had declared that Samsung. Would keep a fingerprint reader classic (but better placed than the Galaxy S8). On this occasion, he also made the prediction that what he called Galaxy Note9. Would integrate the same sensor under the screen.
Six months after launching the smartphone with the stylus, the analyst is backing down. It is more than likely that Samsung has abandoned the idea of a sensor under the screen because of “technological difficulties “. The fingerprint reader would work poorly when there is a protective film on the screen, and the execution would not be sufficient relying upon the earth of the user.
It is likely that Samsung will remain at the same fingerprint sensor as the Galaxy S9, as well as methods of identification of the latest models: recognition of the iris, face, schema, password and code unlocking. The Galaxy S9 also features an intelligent analysis feature that combines facial and iris recognition.
Another manufacturer has launched the fingerprint sensor market under the screen. This is Vivo with the X20 Plus UD, whose pre-orders started on January 25th. The technology used is that of Synaptic, which Samsung would not have wanted to use on its side.
