Kuo still believes that Android makers (other than Samsung) will prefer face scanning over under display fingerprint readers. 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. Samsung Design Head said on-screen fingerprint sensor wasn't ready yet and so it didn't make it in time for the Galaxy S9.

In late summer of this year, is expected to announce business-smartphone Samsung Galaxy Note 9, which will be something from Chinese competitors. Kuo says that none of the in-display solutions, be it optical or ultrasonic, has met Samsung's high standards so far. 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. But Samsung's new phones, as well as the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy Note 8, are different in that their displays ever so slightly curve over the phones' left and right edges. Samsung's mobile business chief DJ Koh recently told media that the company would no longer rush things to be the first to market. One of them is Samsung and it was speculated to implement this feature in the Galaxy Note 9.

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

Sources tell us that these dates have been notified for Turkey, but it is expectable that Indian users will see Oreo updates on a timeline very near to the given schedule presented above. The entire series of the phones which will see the Oreo update in coming days includes Galaxy Note 8, Galaxy S7, Galaxy S7 edge, Galaxy A7 (2017), Galaxy A5 (2017) and Galaxy A3 (2017). But it does not mean that the same would take away the rear-mounted fingerprint sensor. Even the reliable Ming-Chi Kuo from KGI predicted that the 2018 Note will finally pull it off.
