Samsung Galaxy Note 9 could be the first device with in-display fingerprint reader

    Yeah, some chinese company will do it first.

    It likely has more to do with wanting another feature to differentiate the Note from the S series and drive sales for their most expensive phone.

      BS…I disagree. It’s more likely the in display technology and parts supply isn’t ready and won’t be for another year.

      Where’s the innovation and hardware leadership…Same old Samsung. Looks like the S9 will be the Note 8 minus the pen.

      They are going to focus their attention on customer feedback…what a joke.

      Can’t wait to see all the defensive excuses.

      They have no way of knowing if it can only be made ready in 12 months vs 9 months, that’s just silly.

      Personally, I think it will be out on other phones even sooner and if Samsung decides not to use it for the S9 it’s because they want to save it 3 months later for the Note.

      Excuse # 1…they are going to save it for later. So if it misses the Note 9, it might make the S10.

      Samsung obviously doesn’t care about customer feedback as just about everyone including Samsung fanboys think the off centered back placement of the fingerprint sensor is stupid. But Samsung doesn’t care about correcting that and is going to wait for the opportune time to introduce the feature on a future phone.

      That’s true about Samsung, but do you thing Apple or any of the other companies are any different?

    • h2oflyer

      Apple and other companies have all had their “______gate” problems, but don’t continue on with stupid hardware issues that no one likes. That is Samsung arrogance.

    • Do Do

      You should read a lot more. There’s various complaints about Apple and the rest all around do what people don’t want. Especially with Apple.

    • h2oflyer

      Excuse # 2…This article isn’t about Apple or the rest. We are commenting on Samsung’s focusing their attention on customer feedback and choosing to delay the rumoured iunder-display fingerprint sensor forever.

    • Do Do

      No, you are commenting on Samsung, I’m comment on how Samsung and Apple and the rest are the same at not paying attention to what their customers want.

    • h2oflyer

      OK… it’s not an excuse, and you are correct, and they all do what they want.

      I don’t think it’s stupid. I think people that haven’t got the hang of it, after one week of using it, are stupid.

    • h2oflyer

      So are those that think the off centered back placement is OK and they put it there for the best interest of the users, and Samsung’s never never plan for the under-display is good marketing.

    If they continue to not listen, it won’t matter what they do. I still have no real reason to get rid of my note 4. Which would probably explain why these companies have made these phones virtually disposable after a 18-36 months. They have to figure out ways to make people keep buying and building obsolescence into the phone through non removable batteries is one way.

      I would have kept using my Note 4, but it stopped working slowly and took minutes to unlock. Apparently it’s due to memory/motherboard. My other friend’s Note 4 also had the same issue soon after I had bought a LG G6 to replace it.

    • Do Do

      I have to say that other than replacing 2 batteries, my note 4 is a beast. I mean along with grinding through day, every day, I’ve dropped it at least 5-6 times on cement and only shows scratches on the edges as I don’t use a case. Anyway, I think this note 4 may be the last one I buy, it’s not released yet but I don’t see upgrading to the 8, I’d sooner buy the 7 FE before the 8 and that idiotic fingerprint sensor placement. I’m sick of companies expected people to “get used” their stupidity.

    • Roger

      Yeah I was gonna keep using the Note 4 so I had bought a few extra Anker batteries too. I didn’t expect something like this to happen. I hate the curved screen and the new fingerprint sensor placement of the new Samsung phones, too. That’s why I got the G6 and I like it so far after four months.

    My god, the Note 8 isn’t even out yet. These rumors are junk posts.
