The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is still being introduced to the world and the news about the next generation of the phones is already here.

The Galaxy Note 9 will have an optical fingerprint sensor embedded into its display panel, KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo predicted earlier this month, suggesting that Samsung may finally be able to commercialize the emerging biometric authentication technology by next summer. It's that one feature Apple didn't add yet to the iPhone X and if everything goes as planned, then Samsung may do so first.

Samsung said the phone had a battery, which was not approved or manufactured by the company.

Meanwhile, Apple was also rumoured to feature an on-screen fingerprint sensor on its iPhone X, but Apple is not able to come up with the technology in time and has to ditch the sensor. The event should immediately remind anyone who follows tech news about the exploding Galaxy Note 7 fiasco, where a number of Note 7 devices exploded due to faulty batteries.

Si è inventato un distributore di gasolio "itinerante" con il quale raggiungeva i suoi clienti a domicilio. L'uomo, insieme ad un cliente, beccato a fare rifornimento, sono stati denunciati all'Autorità Giudiziaria.

The phone was apparently a Samsung Galaxy Grand Duos, which was released in 2013, according to Channel NewsAsia.

If the under-display optical fingerprint sensor technology turns into a reality, all that users of the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 have to do to unloack their devices is to place their fingers on certain part of the screen.

Samsung's Korean companies BeyondEyes and the Samsung subsidiary Samsung LSI have already shipped part samples to Samsung, according to Business Insider and they might be the favorite to get a supply contract from the smartphone manufacturer.

At best it will be ready for late next year, the Galaxy Note 9 which seems a long wait. Although Samsung also uses facial recognition using the eyes, it is still not a solid enough feature and can be easily fooled and a lot of people are not really keen on Apple's Face ID. Pegged as its most advanced smartphone, the Galaxy Note 8 was launched on Friday during a ceremony in Lahore.
