But here's the thing, the older Galaxy S8 and Note 8's cameras still perform very decent in today's flagship phone camera standards, they might not have the Galaxy S9's f/1.5 aperture for low light, however with a few tweaks in the Pro mode, you are still going to get really nice shots. He believes the in-display fingerprint sensor is necessary for full-screen smartphone designs.

Samsung may or may not choose to implement the sensor in 2019. It already learned that lesson and mobile division chief DJ Koh himself hinted that the company will take a "when it's ready" approach to new products and features. Since that affects the success rate, Samsung may decide to stick with a conventional fingerprint sensor for its next flagship device.

Kuo also said that Samsung is still facing some problems with putting an in-display fingerprint scanner on the Note 9. Meanwhile, Synaptics already launched its under-glass optical fingerprint sensor the previous year. There are still issues with speed, accuracy, and security with current technologies.

System S7 and S7 Edge will get the Oreo update on April 13, trailed by Galaxy Tab S3 on May 24 and after that the mid-go cell phone A7 (2018) on 25th of May. It's likely that carriers will soon introduce "more aggressive promotions" to move Galaxy S9 inventory, Johnson said.

Also, as under-display fingerprint recognition module has a unit price 4-6 times that of capacitive fingerprint recognition module (or higher), we think that once the former module goes into mass production, the contribution to suppliers' sales and profits will be significant.
Just a few short days ago, Citi analysts said that Apple won't sell sell almost as many iPhone X units in the first half of the year as it did in November and December. Apple says Face ID is far more secure than the Touch ID fingerprint sensor.
