While big tech names like Samsung and Vivo are still struggling with this technology, a comparatively smaller name than Apple or Samsung but China's major smartphone maker, has done the unimaginable by launching world's first in-screen fingerprint sensor phone called Vivo X20 Plus UD. However, as per the latest report, handsets like the Samsung Galaxy Note 8, Galaxy S7, Galaxy S7 Edge, Galaxy A7 (2017), Galaxy A5 (2017) and Galaxy A3 (2017) will get the latest Android OS soon. With the Galaxy S9, I wasn't forced to type my passcode if I didn't want to use facial recognition, rather just used the fingerprint sensor.

Samsung will likely reveal the Galaxy Note 9 in August. Note 9 will copy this feature.

Rumors that both Samsung and Apple plan to introduce this type of fingerprint scanner in one of their flagship phones have been around for years, but none of them have come to fruition. The feature does not work well with screen protectors, and "environments" which results in a less than stellar success rate. That would mean the whole of the front of the Note 9, more or less, would be given over to the screen. The organization is working a Turkish site named Güncelmiyiz, which has uncovered that the Galaxy Note 8 will get the Android Oreo update on March 30.

As with many other Android phones, you can also choose to add more storage to the Galaxy S9 by purchasing a microSD card, which may be useful for those who download a lot of full-length movies or frequently shoot 4K video on their phones. Unfortunately, Samsung probably isn't jumping on that bandwagon just yet.

That's going to be especially true on the software side - though as we've said, the Note 9 will come with a stylus, so look out for extra options like lock screen handwriting support and the option to highlight and translate text with the S Pen. One can buy the phone with new price on Flipkart, Samsung's official website and on retail stores.
