Galaxy Note 9: an in-display fingerprint sensor is unlikely

We spent more than a week with the Galaxy S9+ instead of the Apple iPhone X, so here are five things I like about the Galaxy S9 from the iPhone X.

Now that the Samsung Galaxy S9 has been unveiled, and nearly ready to reach the hands of phone-users everywhere, the rumours have had to switch gears. This is definitely an iterative update - similar to Apple's approach with the iPhone 8.

Industry watchers, meanwhile, said domestic pre orders for the Galaxy S9s may not be on par with the S8 series devices launched previous year.

The Galaxy S9 feature was particularly helpful coming from the iPhone X, which I usually have to pick up to unlock since it doesn't have a fingerprint sensor. We'll keep you updated on the latest.

That familiar design is a good one, though.

Let's see how Samsung or its partners will work on this technology solution. It's this feature, according to some, which forced Samsung to hastily relegate the S8 lineup's fingerprint sensor to the back; initially, Samsung expected virtual fingerprint sensing to make it on the smartphone, making this decision when Synaptics failed to deliver. It features a standard Headphone Jack and a USB-C port. These smartphones had shipped with Android Nougat out-of-the-box.

As far as screen size goes, the Note 9 may well match the 6.3 inches of the Note 8, just a shade bigger than the S9 Plus.

Bixby is still on board with a dedicated Bixby button, but that can be easily disabled now.

Recent history may not have been kind to Rangers , but in the early 1990s they were the undisputed kings of Scottish football. The Old Firm game is available in most countries through the rights holders' online platform, if they have one.

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.

For many people, their smartphone is now their only camera.

Here's a photo that's shot on the Galaxy S8. But when it comes to shooting in the dark, Samsung wins.

It also does a great job at super slow motion video.

SAMSUNG'S Galaxy S9 has been praised by tech reviewers, but experts say the phone is already a sales FLOP.

Samsung Galaxy On Max has received a price of Rs. 2,000. There is no doubt they will once again take top honors when it comes to Android. Which will obviously require more time.
