Samsung Galaxy Note 9 Release Date Could Introduce Display Embedded Fingerprint Sensor

The under-display optical fingerprint sensor has been one of the industry's most anticipated features of 2017 smartphones, though the most exciting high-end smartphones (Samsung's Galaxy S8, Galaxy S8+, Galaxy Note 8, and Apple's iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus) were unable to offer the feature on their smartphones this year.

Ming-Chi Kuo, a security analyst from the Keck Graduate Institute of Claremont (KGI) in California has announced this month that the new Samsung Galaxy Note 9 will come up with an optical fingerprint sensor that will be embedded into the display panel of the phone.

Samsung is looking for a technology that would enable OLED screen display to double as a light source for the sensor. It's that one feature Apple didn't add yet to the iPhone X and if everything goes as planned, then Samsung may do so first.

The next Samsung Galaxy Note model will have an under-display fingerprint.

What's more interesting is that it will apparently take Samsung quite some time to flawless it, since there is no mention of this technology being attempted for the Galaxy S9. 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 device will also feature a 12MP front camera. The event should immediately remind anyone who follows tech news about the exploding Galaxy Note 7 fiasco, where a number of Note 7 devices exploded due to faulty batteries.

Korean companies including BeyondEyes and Samsung SLI are favorites to win the contract, while Egis, which supplies standard fingerprint sensors to Samsung, is also in the cards. He can be seen reaching for his Galaxy Grand Duos when it suddenly bursts into flames, emitting blue sparks and setting his shirt on fire.

Samsung's #Galaxy Note 9 phablet is nearly a year away, but speculations about the company's upcoming device have increased on the internet.
