Samsung Galaxy S9 available in S. Korea for pre-order buyers

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. The only phone maker that has actually brought a smartphone with an under-the-display fingerprint scanner to market is Vivo, but its X20 Plus is now only available in China. Kuo adds that Samsung's fingerprint sensor technology doesn't respond well to screen protectors and other various environmental factors that affect the effectiveness of the sensor technology. He claims that it is "key for full-screen designs" and that facial recognition - as seen in the iPhone X - can not fully replace fingerprint scanning. Should they spend a fortune for a Galaxy S9 or look for a discounted Galaxy S8 instead?

Samsung doesn't seem to be in a rush this time to implement something totally new. In a surprising move, a new Chinese manufacturer Vivo has managed to launch a flagship device which supports fingerprint sensor embedded on the screen. The Note has been said to apply an under-display sensor which is something Samsung wasn't' able to do on the S9. Vivo uses Synaptics' Clear ID FS9500 in-display fingerprint sensor in its smartphone.

In all honesty, the camera on the S9 is quite good, but considering we have tested the Google Pixel 2 extensively, Samsung's new offering is not as good. There are still issues with speed, accuracy, and security with current technologies.

Titans Plan To Release DeMarco Murray
Murray, 30, was splitting time with Derrick Henry a year ago , even though Henry was the much better player in 2017. The 27-year-old Goodwin set career highs last season with 56 catches for 962 yards and scored two touchdowns.

Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge will be getting the Oreo update on April 13, followed by Galaxy Tab S3 on May 24 and then the mid-range smartphone A7 (2018) on 25th of May. 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.

Once again, Microsoft is bringing its own custom version of Samsung's Galaxy S9.
