Fingerprint sensors under the display are going to be a real thing in 2018

  Fingerprint sensors under the display are going to be a real thing in 2018 Synaptics, the company responsible for handling the touch input on millions of laptop trackpads and smartphone screens, has announced this week that it’s entered mass production with its first optical in-display fingerprint sensors. It was exactly a year ago today that Synaptics first announced its FS9100 optical fingerprint sensor “family.” At the time, it was merely a technological breakthrough — more a statement of intent than a forthcoming real-world product — and subsequent events have shown that there were issues with the implementation of that tech, which reportedly forced Samsung into a last-minute change with its flagship Galaxy smartphone.

That Samsung is testing out a variant of the Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus handsets should not come as a surprise. The real surprise would be if the dual-SIM variant makes its way out of the Chinese market into the wider world. Much as I’m sold on the utility of dual SIM handsets (easily found in the UK through handsets from OnePlus and WileyFox, to name two), there seems to be a reluctance by networks to bring dual SIM handsets to the mainstream in western markets. Perhaps there’s to much revenue from roaming fees while travelling around Europe and flitting between countries?

There’s also Samsung’s approach to supporting microSD cards. In previous dual-SIM handsets the second SIM card sits in the same physical space as the microSD card – it’s a dual function space on the card holder. There are a number of indications that suggest Samsung might be (once more) considering dropping SD card support from a flagship handset and relying on a bump up in the internal memory. If that’s the case, then where would the second SIM card go?

I’d expect the S9 to continue supporting microSD, I’d expect BRIC editions of the handset to continue offering dual SIM support, and I’d expect the variants that reach North America and Europe will be limited to single SIM operations… unfortunately.
