What's more, information about the new Note's current status has already started leaking, with a particularly juicy leak pointing towards a fingerprint reader in the display.

Well known Samsung leakster MMDDJ says that the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 is currently in an intensive testing period, with its detailed model number listed:

Interestingly, this information about the intensive testing period comes at the same time as rumours about the nature of what the Note 9 is trying to deliver this year, which is a in-screen optical fingerprint sensor. That's something that up till this point has been elusive in the mainstream flagship smartphone market.

How Samsung’s New Galaxy S9 Compares to the iPhone X

  How Samsung’s New Galaxy S9 Compares to the iPhone X The Samsung flagship goes on sale just a few months after Apple’s revamped competitor, but which is better?The phone is critical for the company. Samsung needs to show it has the hardware and software chops to maintain its leadership in the Android market, while proving Apple isn’t king of smartphone design. Then there’s fending off rising Chinese competition from Huawei and reassuring investors that Vice Chairman Jay Y. Lee has the company’s future under control since his legal woes commanded global headlines.

By Paul Douglas 2018-03-29T11:26:13.870Z. Whether the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 will feature an in - screen fingerprint reader has been the subject of much speculation, with the latest leak claiming that it will indeed have a scanner embedded in the screen.

New information surfaced today that points to Samsung "seriously considering" putting an under-glass fingerprint scanner in the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 . However, the feature has never materialized, leaving users with a fingerprint sensor on the back of the phone.

Of course, all this information comes after the rumours that broke earlier in 2018 that stated that Samsung was looking to bring out a foldable smartphone, named the Samsung Galaxy X, to market at the end of this year or early in 2019. If this foldable phone does exist, then it would make sense for it, too, to utilise a fingerprint sensor located beneath its screen.

We loved the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 in our review, stating that it was 2017's "best phone for getting stuff done." There's no doubting, though, that an upgraded version of the Note in the form of a Galaxy Note 9 packing a in-display fingerprint sensor, as well as Samsung's new dual-aperture camera system, AR Emoji and upgraded Bixby smart AI assistant would be a very, very tantalising proposition.

Samsung Note 9 in-screen fingerprint reader could be held back for Galaxy S10 .
If you were looking forward to a Samsung Note 9 with an in-screen fingerprint reader, the latest news may leave you disappointed. Twitter user 'Ice Universe' tweeted on 3 March 2018, that the cutting-edge unlock technology was being tested on the Note 9, but now a respected industry analyst says that the feature will not be ready in time for the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 release date later this year.
