Recent reports suggest Samsung may not introduce the long-rumored in-display fingerprint sensor on the Galaxy Note 9.
There was hope that consumers might see the new security option on the Galaxy Note 9 after the Chinese manufacturer Vivo introduced an in-display fingerprint sensor on its X20 Plus UD smartphone in January. However, the Korean publication Bell claims Samsung may forgo the feature for yet another smartphone model due to continued technical difficulties in implementing the sensor.
The Galaxy S8 and Galaxy Note 8 were both rumored to include in-display fingerprint sensors prior to their respective launches, but both phones released with rear-facing fingerprint sensors instead. The Galaxy S9 was also once rumored to introduce Samsung's in-display fingerprint sensor, but the device is only expected to move its rear-facing fingerprint sensor to be slightly more accessible to users.
