Samsung Electronics showcases Galaxy S9 in Mexico

Samsung Galaxy J8

In late summer of this year, is expected to announce business-smartphone Samsung Galaxy Note 9, which will be something from Chinese competitors. KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has released a new research note to investors, seen by Apple Insider, where he claims the successor to the Note 8 won't get a revolutionary in-display fingerprint scanner. Samsung Israel mobile division director Guy Hibash said that the new smartphone has been built by the Korean electronics giant around the quality of its camera because that's what users are looking for.

Kuo, who has been fairly accurate with his predictions, believes Samsung will "likely" drop the feature due to "technological difficulties" from issues with screen protectors to accuracy and speed. This time it's because both the ultrasonic and optical solutions didn't meet Samsung's technical requirements. He also claimed that the feature now suffers from problems with screen protectors as well as different environments affecting the success rate of the sensor, which could turn out to be Samsung's reason for removing the technology.

Kuo is still pretty positive that Samsung will eventually break through its roadblocks and lead the way when it comes to incorporating fingerprint sensors underneath OLED panels. Perhaps Samsung's mysterious foldable phone will have the honor of bearing its under-display fingerprint scanner or the next Galaxy S flagship.
