Last we heard, KGI’s research analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said the Samsung Galaxy Note9 will not come with a fingerprint reader under its display. Yet now a new report from Samsung’s home country of South Korea is claiming otherwise.
The Korea Herald says the tech giant is likely to go for an in-display fingerprint sensor on this year’s Galaxy Note series smartphone.
“Samsung Display has prepared three or four solutions for Samsung Electronics to embed the fingerprint sensor inside of the main display, and both are seriously considering one of the solutions,” the media cites one of its sources.
It further says the delay in zeroing on one particular solution is “due to the work in adopting the in-display fingerprint sensor,” adding that a final decision on the matter is expected sometime this month.
Having the fingerprint reader under the device’s display would make room for a comparatively larger battery, and presumably that’s what Samsung is aiming for in Galaxy Note9.
