Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus low-light camera performance: Yay or nay?

Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus low-light camera performance: Yay or nay?

Well that's because Samsung is facing some "technological difficulties" in putting a fingerprint scanner below the display.

Samsung is secretly working on a new device called Galaxy Note 9.

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

There have been rumours and leaks for some time now that have suggested the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 would be the company's first to feature an in-display fingerprint sensor. Screen protectors and different environments affect the success rate of the technology, forcing Samsung to remove it from the Note 9. A similar prediction was made for the Galaxy S9 by KGI in August (which was accurate) but it claimed then that the Galaxy Note 9 would get it.

Once again, Microsoft is bringing its own custom version of Samsung's Galaxy S9. Samsung was testing both the ultrasonic and optical solutions, but both of them failed to meet its standards. Security is the biggest question mark on this nascent technology and is also one of the Samsung's biggest concerns as it positions its phones as something that can be used in highly sensitive cases, like governments and military.

That might come as a surprise, considering how Vivo and Synaptics are already singing praises about the latter's in-display fingerprint scanner.

Samsung may or may not choose to implement the sensor in 2019. Should they spend a fortune for a Galaxy S9 or look for a discounted Galaxy S8 instead?

But while that scanner "just works" for Vivo and Synaptics, it's not going to be enough for Samsung.

The Galaxy S9 feature was particularly helpful coming from the iPhone X, which I usually have to pick up to unlock since it doesn't have a fingerprint sensor.

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.

CNET: "The Galaxy S9 is a nice incremental upgrade, but its low-light camera isn't a game changer and some new features fall far behind the iPhone X".
