Under-Display Sensor May Finally Debut in Galaxy Note 9

For now, the latest Galaxy Note 8 leaks seem to indicate that Samsung has made a decision to address that challenge by moving the fingerprint sensor from the front to the back, as it did with the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus. This device's code-name was connected to the Samsung Galaxy X by a number of blogs this week - all evidence seeming to be pointing toward a couple of sources.

Samsung has a lot riding on the success of its Galaxy Note 8 in light of last year's costly recall of the fire-prone Galaxy Note 7, which led to losses in the billions.

One reason behind this decision is Samsung's chief rival Apple dropping plans to integrate fingerprint sensor under the display in the iPhone 8.

Recently, at a conference, a spokesperson from the company has claimed that they will not change the launch date of this upcoming Galaxy Note 8 smartphone. A representative told the publication, "We are going to sell Galaxy Note 8 starting from the 15th of September". While only those two smartphones are now listed as part of the offer, the folks at XDA Developers spotted that this wasn't always the case. In an earlier post, BGR reported that the Note 8 will have a boxier design with Infinity Display and a dual camera on the rear side with the fingerprint sensor. But unlike Note 8, it will have a cutout at the top to house the 3D sensor, earpiece, and front camera. This represents a 50 per cent increase over the sadly doomed Galaxy Note 7, and should ensure that the Galaxy Note 8 is a pretty slick and nifty performer.

"The first half is normally generous to Samsung, as there is no new product from Apple". Moreover, it will also feature a resolution of 2960 x 1440 with 18.5:9 aspect ratio. The smartphone will also include an S Pen stylus that could be overhauled with enhanced pressure sensitivity. The new phone seems to be largely identical to the version of the Galaxy Note 8 that came through the FCC not long ago, save for the radio bands on show being just a bit more fitting for the Korean market.

As for specifications, the Galaxy S9 concept features a 5.7-inch 4K display, an octa-core processor with 6 and 8GB RAM options, 64GB and 128GB internal storage options, 4,200 mAh battery, dual 16-megapixel cameras on the back and dual 8-megapixel cameras on the front.
