At this point, it doesn't even feel like news anymore to report once again that Samsung's next flagship smartphone won't be sporting an under-the-glass fingerprint scanner because this is going on for more than a year now. Renowned KGI analyst and Apple leakster Ming-Chi Kuo has sadly declared this fact, although he had himself said earlier that Samsung would be able to pull it off with the Note 9. Apparently, the OEM can't do that at this moment, but incidentally, Vivo has already done it successfully with the Apex.
It is baffling for many as to why Samsung is unable to do it, especially since the only reasoning offered here by Ming-Chi Kuo was a vague explanation about the current gen sensors being unable to bring what Samsung needed to the table. It might have something to do with the fact that the latest under-the-display sensors being incapable of working with an OLED display properly, but we don't know for sure.
