Samsung Galaxy Note 8 to get Oreo update this month

10 March 2018

As is the case with the latest insights from KGI's analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who reports that Samsung's implementation of an under-display fingerprint reader won't be ready in time for the Galaxy Note 9 later this year.

Due to technical difficulties, Kuo expects Samsung to drop plans for putting an under-display fingerprint tech inside the Note 9.

As of now, Samsung Turkey has revealed planned release dates of Android Oreo to Galaxy Note 8 and some other premium models previously launched.

Samsung is believed to have been working on optical fingerprint recognition technology for a few years now but we've yet to see the company commercialize an in-display fingerprint sensor. Rumors have been circulating for nearly a year that the Galaxy Note 9 would feature an in-display fingerprint sensor. 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.

Moreover, Kuo also says that this technology hasn't matured as much as Samsung would want to put it into a smartphone, as it faces issues from screen guards and other "environments" that ultimately affect its success rate. 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.

Samsung doesn't seem to be in a rush this time to implement something totally new. It means the next year's Galaxy S10 (or whatever it's called) could be the first Samsung flagship to offer an in-display fingerprint sensor. Most sources claimed that Galaxy Note 9 will not sport a fingerprint sensor hidden behind the display but the new leaked patent says otherwise. However, like any other smartphones out there, the Galaxy S9 isn't the one and only flawless flagship that you could buy, and we have listed down 9 reasons why you should probably hold off your purchase on the Galaxy S9. In its place, Apple implemented Face ID, a facial recognition system Apple touted as being both more secure and reliable than Touch ID.
