Galaxy Note 9’s breakthrough feature has reportedly been cancelled
In the build-up to the iPhone X unveiling, there were a number of rumors claiming that the device would incorporate a Touch ID sensor built right into the display itself. Of course, when Apple finally unveiled its next-gen iPhone, Touch ID was nowhere to be found. In its place, Apple implemented Face ID, a facial recognition system Apple touted as being both more secure and reliable than Touch ID.
Predictably, some were quick to claim that Apple opted for Face ID because it was unable to solve a number of technical hurdles associated with embedding a Touch ID sensor into the device’s OLED display. For what it’s worth, Apple has refuted this claim. In any event, there have been rumblings over the past few months that Samsung’s forthcoming Galaxy Note 9 would incorporate a fingerprint sensor beneath the display and, in turn, succeed where some believe Apple had failed.
