But my prediction is that the Note 9's story will be like the Note 8's story; brings not that much new things compared to the S9/S9+, and with even smaller battery compared to the Plus model.
Well there might be something new, but not too much as for S9/S9+ users to upgrade immediately.

Meanwhile, JDI already patented a screen glass-based fingerprint scanner that will work for both IPS LCD and OLED, not just the latter.

Maybe later this year, that one big Japanese company will bring it to their next flagship device with a brand new camera sensor.

Lol, as I said :-P Samsung don't know how to make it work with their bloatware anyway.

My wife has the iPhone X, and it was apparent to me yesterday that Apple made the right call by going with face id over touchId. We were both shoveling the driveway when she got a call, she simply reached in her pocket and pulled the phone out. faceId worked in seconds and off she went with her conversation like nothing. 10 minutes I got a call this time, I reached into my pocket pulled my phone out only to realize I needed to take off my gloves to use fps. Since my hands were cold from shoveling it did not work the first time. By the time I got past the lockscreen, the person hung up. It was only a few second but those two scenarios illustrate the difference between those two techs.

FaceId is not perfect and its not faster than touchId, but my wife loves it a ton more than touchId for exactly these type of situations, specially everyday occurrences in the kitchen. I do not have an iPhone X so I can't vouched for it but if I am going by my wife's experiences I have to admit I am a little jealous so far.

One of the main problems is that it doesn't work if you're using a screen protector, so for now it's better that they don't use it at all.

Yeah just like Apple kept recycling their shi*t until they reached their 10 years anniversary so maybe the S10 will have it
