Rumors that the Galaxy S9 will copy the iPhone X just picked up steam
Remember all those rumors saying that the iPhone X — iPhone 8, as it was called back then — would come with a fingerprint sensor under the display? It turns out Apple never had such intentions to begin with, as it channeled all its innovative energy into Face ID, which was designed as a Touch ID replacement for all-screen iPhones.
Competitors, however, may have been fooled by those rumors. And Samsung, which is Apple’s biggest fan, may have been working on a solution to embed the fingerprint sensor into its Galaxy S9 display as well. A new report says that Samsung may not have it ready in time for the Galaxy S9 launch, which is set to launch in early 2018. The Galaxy Note 9, however, might still get it.
