Samsung Galaxy Note9 reportedly not coming with in-display fingerprint scanner

Amazon Deal Of The Day 9 Reasons You Shouldn't Buy or Upgrade to the Galaxy S9 now

This is according to a new report by analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who has backtracked on his earlier position and is now claiming Samsung's upcoming Galaxy Note 9 smartphone probably won't have an under-the-display fingerprint scanner. Now, it seems that the brand is preparing to roll out the Oreo update for the Galaxy Note 8, Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge.

After launching the Galaxy S9 series last month at Mobile World Congress 2018, the next flagship device from Samsung will be the next-gen Note series phone, which is expected to be called the Galaxy 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.

Here's a photo that's shot on the Galaxy S8.

Last year's Galaxy S8's preorder was the best preorder deal that Samsung has ever made, and not to forget to mention the Note 8's insane RM600 rebate. On the Galaxy S9, just tap the recent apps button and press the multi-window symbol in the app's title bar to start a split screen mode. Also, the preorder deal isn't attractive either as you will only receive a Harman Kardon Onyx Mini speaker worth RM699, which in reality you could already purchase it separately at Lazada for as low as RM399.


The Galaxy S9 is barely two weeks old but rumors of what the Galaxy Note 9 may or may not have are already starting to circulate.

Previous year may have been an exceptional one, as Samsung introduced its curved glass "Infinity Display" in the mainstream flagship for the first time, creating renewed interest in the product line.

After spending more than a week using the Galaxy S9+ instead of the iPhone X, here are five features that stood out to me that Apple's smartphone is missing. We'll keep you updated on the latest.

The device takes advantage of a Snapdragon 660 and 4GB of RAM with 128GB of native storage. Similarly, Galaxy A3, A5 and A7 (2017) are listed to receive the Oreo update on May 25 this year. The device uses technology developed by Synaptics and comes with upper mid-range specs including a 6.43-inch AMOLED display with FHD+ resolution and 18:9 aspect ratio.
