Samsung Galaxy Note 9 probably won't feature an in-screen fingerprint sensor

Galaxy S9 Galaxy S9+ Get Low Repairability Score in iFixit Teardown

The Galaxy S9 is barely two weeks old but rumors of what the Galaxy Note 9 may or may not have are already starting to circulate.

Analyst Jeff Johnson from Arthur Wood Research has cited sources in the supply chain who claim that pre-orders for Samsung's Galaxy S9 smartphone are down 50% compared to the number of pre-orders for the Galaxy S8 launched past year. Well that's because Samsung is facing some "technological difficulties" in putting a fingerprint scanner below the display.

NCAA Basketball: The annual argument against conference tournaments
RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - The Big East has No. 2 Villanova and No. 3 Xavier aiming for No. 1 seeds in the NCAA Tournament . The unanimous Big 12 Player of the Year actually has much to play for as Kansas embarks on their tournament journey.

BGR: "Samsung's new Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ are impressive phones, to say the least". Since last one year there are rumours that Samsung is developing an in-screen fingerprint technology for Galaxy Note 9 but now Ming-Chi Kuo from KGI Securities, as reported by AppleInsider, has said that the company will most likely put the feature on hold due to some technical issues. The only phone maker that has actually brought a smartphone with an under-the-display fingerprint scanner to market is Vivo, but its X20 Plus is now only available in China. He believes the in-display fingerprint sensor is necessary for full-screen smartphone designs. Meanwhile, Synaptics already launched its under-glass optical fingerprint sensor the previous year. Samsung's mobile business chief DJ Koh recently told media that the company would no longer rush things to be the first to market.

In all honesty, the camera on the S9 is quite good, but considering we have tested the Google Pixel 2 extensively, Samsung's new offering is not as good. The Galaxy Note series is one of the most important product lines for Samsung.

European Central Bank: US President Trump tariff move "dangerous"
On the Trump tariffs he said potential trade disputes "would introduce higher uncertainty in the future growth path". They could depress confidence among consumers and businesses, he said, which could weaken both growth and inflation.

Kuo himself is not a believer of face recognition, no matter how many times Apple preaches it.

The Galaxy S9 feature was particularly helpful coming from the iPhone X, which I usually have to pick up to unlock since it doesn't have a fingerprint sensor.
