A year of rumors saying the best 2017 iPhone would come with a fingerprint sensor under the display may end up being good news for Samsung fans. The Galaxy S8 should have had a fingerprint sensor under the screen, some rumors said, but the technology wasn’t ready for primetime. More recent rumors claimed that the Galaxy Note 9 might be the first phone to make use of the technology.
The iPhone X’s arrival confirmed the death of Touch ID, however, and Apple was soon telling people left and right that fingerprint sensors were never an option for an iPhone equipped with a 3D-sensing Face ID system. Now a new rumor that Samsung is looking to add 3D facial recognition to some upcoming devices to better compete against the iPhone X, but the Galaxy S9 might not be one of them.
