Samsung has launched its latest flagship in the S series- the Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus at MWC 2018. The device had some solid specifications like 5.8 inches Super AMOLED Quad HD+ display, Snapdragon 845/Exynos 9810, 4/6GB RAM, dual aperture camera etc. The focus is now on the upcoming Galaxy Note 9. There is a lot more time for the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 to launch in the market and it is too early to speculate the specifications.
The South Korean smartphone giant is allegedly trying to cope up with the in-display fingerprint trend started by Chinese smartphone maker Vivo. Earlier, we had seen Samsung file a patent for the in-display fingerprint sensor. It seems like the company had filed the patent for the upcoming flagship Note 9.
According to the patent, the display supports several gestures, including the force touch gestures. Samsung has added Force Touch support for the UX in the display panel. 19:9 aspect ratio is expected on the device, which is larger than the current 18:9 aspect ratio making more usable space on the screen.
The tipster Ice Universe, who has tipped some stuff about Samsung devices before, has tipped that the Galaxy Note9’s optical fingerprint is under intensive testing. This brings hope since the Note 9 will likely be unveiled at the end of August 2018.

The device is expected to feature an improved facial recognition. The competitors are increasing the pressure by offering better ways to unlock your phone. The current facial unlock mechanisms adapted by Samsung are slow and insecure. In addition to that, it isn’t even able to distinguish between actual face and photographs of the face.
Samsung is working really hard in order to innovate their devices. They have to keep up with the latest technology and trends in the market. The expectations of the users should be met by the company. As a result, we are witnessing major changes in the overall aesthetics of a smartphone which were assumed to be impossible in the past.
