Microsoft now selling its own edition of the Samsung Galaxy S9

The company has been taking steps to ensure it's in-display fingerprint technology is improved but it may not be released just in time for the Note 9 to have it. The only phone maker that has actually brought a smartphone with an under-the-display fingerprint scanner to market is Vivo, but its X20 Plus is now only available in China.

Starting at now, Samsung Turkey has uncovered arranged dispatch dates of Android Oreo to Galaxy Note 8 and some other premium models already launched. It is expected to be similar to the Galaxy S9 Plus in many aspects, but the Note 9 will have many unique features as well. Its analysts do not believe that face scanning can replace fingerprint authentication, so a reader is vital for future full-screen designs. Instead, it will introduce new products and technologies when they are ready.

This prediction leaves some wiggle room with the assumption being that if Samsung is able to sort out the issues in the coming months, it might decide to ship the Galaxy Note 9 with an in-display fingerprint sensor after all. Ming-Chi Kuo now expects Samsung to bring the feature to market in the first half of 2019 at the earliest.

That might come as a surprise, considering how Vivo and Synaptics are already singing praises about the latter's in-display fingerprint scanner.

In all honesty, the camera on the S9 is quite good, but considering we have tested the Google Pixel 2 extensively, Samsung's new offering is not as good.

Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge will be getting the Oreo update on April 13, followed by Galaxy Tab S3 on May 24 and then the mid-range smartphone A7 (2018) on 25th of May. The under-display optical fingerprint sensor technology is still not ready but we're crossing our fingers it will be available in time for the new Note. There is only one in a million chance of a random person unlocking an iPhone X, which is much higher than Touch ID's 1 in 50,000.
