Galaxy Note 9 will go with under-display fingerprint scanner, says Kuo
Ming-chi Kuo is more famous for his analysis and predictions on Apple products, though some think he’s been losing steam of late. He has also dabbled on Android devices recently, and now he has word on what Samsung might be planning next year. While he thinks that Android devices are heading the way of Apple’s Face ID and TrueDepth camera, Samsung is still pushing through, at least temporarily, with the under-display optical fingerprint sensor, which might debut in the Galaxy Note 9.
Samsung has reportedly already invested tons of resources, money included of course, in the development of such fingerprint sensors hidden under the display. Apple supposedly has as well, but it seems that Cupertino has decided to cut its losses and head in an entirely different direction. It instead is trying its hand in the 3D sensor and face recognition game, which, Kuo predicts, will be the direction where everyone will be heading in the next 2-3 years.
