Just days after rumors Samsung had canceled in-display fingerprint scanning on the Galaxy Note 9, conflicting information has appeared. According to the Korea Herald, the smartphone maker is considering multiple avenues. “Samsung Display has prepared three or four solutions for Samsung Electronics to embed the fingerprint sensor inside of the main display, and both are seriously considering one of the solutions,” the source explained. Usually, the design of Galaxy phones is finalized around five months before launch, but the choice of scanner is apparently causing some delays. The phone is set to launch in late August. “The delay in deciding on the final concept for the Note 9 is due to the work in adopting the in-display fingerprint sensor. A final decision on adoption of the technology will be made by this month,” said sources familiar with the matter.
