Samsung will be launching the Galaxy Note 9 later this year and it is also likely that Samsung will introduce the In-Display fingerprint sensor in the flagship device. Over the past few weeks, we have come across a number of rumors speculating whether Samsung will introduce the In-Display feature in its latest flagship device or not. According to a new report, the South Korea based company is likely to introduce the In-Display fingerprint sensor on the front screen of the Galaxy Note 9. Another report has also claimed that the upcoming flagship device could be launched earlier than expected.
As per a report by The Korea Herald, the Samsung Display wing of the company has prepared three or four prototypes to embed the fingerprint sensor within the front display panel of the device. The report has also claimed that one of these prototypes could be used to embed the sensor and a final decision about the same will be taken by Samsung Electronics by the end of this month.
Another report, citing an external source has claimed that there was still enough time for the display unit team to improve the In-Display fingerprint sensor technology before it is implemented on the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 before its official launch. The report also stated that although the implementation of this new technology may improve the overall experience of the users, Samsung still cannot find a way to increase the battery capacity in its upcoming device.
Apart from the In-Display sensor, a report by Sam Mobile has claimed that Samsung has already started to test the handset’s firmware on a global scale. It is to be noted that the Galaxy Note 9 carries two firmware versions of ‘N960FXXE0ARB7’ and ‘N960FXXU0ARC5’. The report has also claimed that Samsung has started work on the Galaxy Note 9 two weeks earlier than it did for the Galaxy Note 8. This could mean that the upcoming flagship device may be launched earlier than the expected release date.
