KGI Analyst Says No In-Display Fingerprint Sensor For Galaxy Note 9

The Galaxy Note 9 is expected to be launched in August and considering the design of the Galaxy S9 didn't change too much from its predecessor, it's unlikely the Note 9 will differ too greatly from the Note 8.

South Korean smartphone manufacturer Samsung will roll out the Android Oreo OS update to its select premium and budget phones soon. As per a report by SamMobile citing details revealed by the well-known research analyst at KGI Securities, Ming-Chi Kuo, this is not going to be the case.

PNB Scam: ICICI Chanda Kochhar and Axis Bank Shikha Sharma Summoned
ICICI Bank led the 31-bank consortium that extended credit to the tune of Rs 5,280 crore to Mehul Choksi's Gitanjali Group . However, this did not stop the federal probe agency, the CBI, from questioning its Executive Director NS Kanan last week .

Dactyloscopy in the screen will be the main competitive advantage of Samsung Galaxy Note 9, but it should be recalled that such sensors at this stage of its development simply does not know how to work with protective films and especially glass. It will break down the launch period and to redesign the phone from the scratch will require more men power and technicians at the same time. It expects it to be a sign of Samsung's goal of tightening its grip on the large-sized smartphone sector, rather than a hint that it'll come with pointy corners and be exclusive to Netflix.

Adding weight to reports out of Korea last month, Kuo has said, via 9to5Google, that Samsung won't have in-screen fingerprint tech ready for the Galaxy Note 9 because of "technical difficulties". Many will look at that statement and feel like smartphone makers such as Apple and Samsung have done this to themselves. In fact, Samsung is also aiming towards improving their Iris Scanner and they will implement the Face Scanning feature with the use of the advanced Iris Scanner on their future devices. As we've already seen the S9's fingerprint scanner is on the back, located just beneath the camera.
