Over the past few years, Samsung has been trying to put the fingerprint sensor under the screen into its high-end smart machines, but due to technical difficulties failed. With the increasing proportion of intelligent machine screen, the border more and more narrow, Samsung is difficult to find the location to install modules and sensors. In the past, Samsung put modules and sensors under the border.
However, giving up the fingerprint sensor in the Galaxy S9 does not mean that Samsung will abandon this biometric technology. Samsung expects to once again try to deploy the technology in the Galaxy Note9, which is likely to be released in August next year. Galaxy Note9 development code is known as the "crown."
"Samsung does not discard fingerprint sensors in cell phones, because many services and platforms are based on this technology," industry observers said.
