However, considering that Galaxy Note devices typically hit the market ahead of iPhones, there is a good chance any new technology Samsung introduces in 2018 will be announced before Apple's products for that year.
As per an analyst at KGI Securities, Ming-Chi Kuo, Samsung is nearly ready to commercialize the biometric technology. Samsung wants to make things as efficient as possible and wants to utilize the OLED screen itself to illuminate the sensor. The handset is rumored to get the one feature the iPhone X doesn't have, a brand new report says. A recent Wall Street Journal report said that Apple considered placing the Touch ID sensor under the display, just as countless rumors had claimed, but then ditched the feature due to manufacturing issues. However, there's a chance other phone makers will beat Samsung to it - the Note 9 isn't expected to be released anytime soon, after all. The technology will be displayed in fingerprint scanner of Samsung Note 9 phone next summer. He has also dabbled on Android devices recently, and now he has word on what Samsung might be planning next year. Either of the two could be awarded a new supply contract following Samsung's testing period and the tech giant's long-term partner Egis may also be commissioned for additional components, with the firm already having a vast experience in manufacturing fingerprint sensors for Samsung.
A feature that was sadly missing on the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 was an under-display fingerprint sensor.
Samsung's #Galaxy Note 9 phablet is nearly a year away, but speculations about the company's upcoming device have increased on the internet. Synaptics, an Apple supplier company is not part of this list.
What's more interesting is that it will apparently take Samsung quite some time to ideal it, since there is no mention of this technology being attempted for the Galaxy S9.
