Samsung will debut its in-display fingerprint sensor on the Galaxy S10 when it launches around March next year, not on the Galaxy Note 9 that will be released this August.
There have been conflicting reports on when the Samsung fingerprint sensor in screens will be rolled out. A new report from the company’s home country of South Korea, however, looks to end all speculation.
According to Korean media outlet, Chosun Economy via Android Authority, the Samsung Galaxy S10 will launch the in-display fingerprint scanner, a feature that we were expecting for the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 9.
There were some reports that said it will be among the Galaxy Note 9 features, while some reports said that the in-display fingerprint scanner will be pushed back to the Galaxy S10. It was also then said that Samsung would be making the final decision in the near future, and it looks like the company finally did.
Samsung was expected to use the under display fingerprint sensor for the upcoming Galaxy Note 9 smartphone but the company has reportedly dropped the idea as the technology does not meet the company’s standard at this stage.
Samsung reportedly informed its suppliers that it will no longer proceed with integrating the in-display fingerprint sensor into the Galaxy Note 9 and will instead introduce the feature with the Galaxy S10.
Meanwhile, Samsung will not be the first company to offer an in-display fingerprint sensor, we already saw it in Vivo X20 Plus UD and Vivo Apex. But Note 9’s technology is believed to be superior compared to the systems used by Chinese smartphone manufacturers.
