Under-the-screen fingerprint readers are proving to be a challenge for even the brightest engineers. While Qualcomm has supposedly figured it out, other giants have failed: Apple, for instance, has allegedly given up on incorporating the technology into the iPhone 8. Samsung couldn't get an under-display sensor into this year's flagships either, but a new report by analyst KGI suggests
that the Note 9 will be the first to have it. Word is: "...Samsung will stick with the same rear-mounted fingerprint sensor on the Galaxy S9, due out early next year. While that's a bit disappointing, we can hope that Samsung listens to customer feedback and adjusts the position to a more ergonomic location. However, Samsung is reported to be making its first smartphone with an under-display fingerprint sensor in the Galaxy Note 9. The report says that Samsung has no reason to risk the technology in the S9 since the upcoming iPhone 8 has ditched efforts to implement it. Seeing that mass-production level options are coming soon, it's clear that Samsung has good reason to bring that technology to its fall release."
