Day sales of Samsung Galaxy S9 'only 70pc of predecessor'

This is the best Android phone of 2018

Review: The Samsung S9 Has a Great Camera. Is That Enough?

Bear in mind that this information comes from KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, rather than any more solid hardware leaks from the production line, but he does have a decent track record with this sort of thing.

Dactyloscopy in the screen will be the main competitive advantage of Samsung Galaxy Note 9, but it should be recalled that such sensors at this stage of its development simply does not know how to work with protective films and especially glass.

Kuo still believes that Android makers (other than Samsung) will prefer face scanning over under display fingerprint readers.

The Galaxy Note 9 won't be the first Samsung smartphone to pack an in-screen fingerprint scanner, according to reports.

South Korean smartphone manufacturer Samsung will roll out the Android Oreo OS update to its select premium and budget phones soon. 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.

Samsung has released a routine maintenance update for the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus, according to SamMobile, created to improve on a number of the pre-release software's (the build reviewers have been using) shortcomings.

In-display fingerprint scanners are quite new. Samsung is known for such innovations with their new smartphones.

According to analysers, nearly all the Android smartphone makers would love to improve their Face Scanning feature instead of adding the in-display Fingerprint Scanner which unnecessarily increases the pricing of the product.

The report notes that, while a pilot production run is likely to take place early next year, the Galaxy Note 9 likely will make its official debut in early to mid-August next year.
