Some Samsung Galaxy S9/S9 Plus phones are having touchscreen issues

Samsung says it's looking into a growing number of complaints that the Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus touchscreen isn't responding to touch. Samsung has been rumoured to bring the on-screen fingerprint sensor ever since past year. Another source mentioned that Samsung has been developing fingerprint scanning technology for flexible AMOLED panels of the Note 9.

Samsung Display has said to have developed three to four kinds of solution for embedding the fingerprint reader underneath the screen, and that it is going to finalise one particular method sooner than later. The delay in the decision is because of the work involved in adopting the in-display fingerprint sensor, which is expected to be done by this month, the report mentioned. Others have returned their affected phones to Samsung in exchange for a new unit.

So says Korean news outlet The Bell (via The Investor), which claims that Samsung could start manufacturing the smartphone, codenamed "Crown", in just two months' time.

"The module on the Note 8, which was located horizontally on the left side of the dual camera module on the rear side of the smartphone, was a cause of great inconvenience", he said.

The Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC, obviously, will be the engine under the hood; however, Samsung releases its phones with the in-house Exynos chipsets in specific markets.

Additional protest are planned in Boston to coincide with Crown Prince Mohammed's multicity visit to the United States. Robert Menendez, N.J., the ranking Democrat on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, called for a political solution.

The report further alleges that Samsung has several ideas on how to implement the technology into the phone and is seriously considering one of those solutions. They rectified that by moving the sensor below the camera with the Galaxy S9.

Vivo became the first smartphone maker to introduce a smartphone with an under-display fingerprint scanner. These are all factors Samsung has to consider in making the technology possible, and there's simply not enough evidence that in-display fingerprint sensors are as secure as conventional ones.

With the iPhone X, Apple removed its beloved Touch ID fingerprint sensor and went all-in with 3D face recognition via Face ID.

He added, "Samsung would want to launch its premium phones with better fingerprint sensing performance against rivals and higher yields of commercialization".
