Reasons You Shouldn't Buy or Upgrade to the Galaxy S9 now

Reasons You Shouldn't Buy or Upgrade to the Galaxy S9 now

Kuo explains that it is "likely" Samsung will remove under-display fingerprint technology from the Note 9 due to "technological difficulties".

He further casts doubts over the technology's commercialization because of the supposed cancellation of Samsung's under-display solution.

Samsung Galaxy S9 comes with a 5,8-inch classic display, 8-core CPU, 4GB of RAM, LTE Cat.18 connectivity, and 64GB or 256GB of internal storage. This means that I spend a lot of time switching between apps, especially if I'm trying to copy and paste material from my notes app or a browser into an email. In fact, he predicts that within the next two to three years shipments of 3D sensor-equipped Android handsets will outstrip shipments of handsets with in-display fingerprint sensors by a factor of two to three.

Rumors that both Samsung and Apple plan to introduce this type of fingerprint scanner in one of their flagship phones have been around for years, but none of them have come to fruition.

The report reveals that the feature malfunctions when screen protectors are involved, or when the phone is placed in certain environments.

Like many of you, I too use my phone for just about everything, whether I'm at work or at my home: sending emails, taking notes, browsing Twitter, getting directions and so on. The 30th of March 2018 is the marked date by Samsung for pushing the update which will allow the Note 8 users to update their devices from Nougat to Oreo. That's going to be followed quickly by Android P, maybe even by the end of the year.

Starting at now, Samsung Turkey has uncovered arranged dispatch dates of Android Oreo to Galaxy Note 8 and some other premium models already launched.

We're looking forward to seeing what Samsung has prepared for us in the coming months, and of course as soon as we've got some official news or some unofficial leaks to share, we'll report them here.
