In a press event in New York on Thursday, Samsung unveiled its newsmart home speaker, wearable and high-end Telephone. Equipped with incremental updates like one a larger capacity battery and a slightly larger screen, the Note 9 does not offer exactly any new earth-destroying technology in the mobile space.
That said, Samsung could save a lot of things for its upcoming flagship phones in 201
In addition to the foreseeable progress we expect to see in the next year (as the latest operating systemwe will have Qualcomm's next Snapdragon processor and improved functionality of the camera in general), we have compiled a list of features that we did not get in Note 9 – functionality that we hope Samsung can hold for the next Galaxy S10 round.
On-screen fingerprint reader
Note 9 fingerprint reader is now under the rear cameras. This is a notablethat had the sensor right next to the camera lenses. While fat fingerprints are less likely to stain the camera with this new placement, an even better position for the player would be inside or below the display.
Known as Fingerprint On Display, or FOD, we have already seen this technology inand . Also the announced in March, it did. We anticipate that the feature will be implemented in many other phones in the near future, with an IHS Markit report that predicts that 100 million phones will be available in .
With the 6.4-inch widescreen of Note 9, the phone definitely had room. Unfortunately, this is a trend waiting behind the scenes, so we should just wait for.
Known asthe next generation of high-speed cellular technology is approaching soon, with wide availability in the United States expected between 2019 and 2020 US carriers like and are already configuring 5G networks and devices, while building 350,000 new mobile phone towers since 2015
Many phone manufacturers have alreadyto make 5G phones by next year, including Samsung. And last week Motorola showed its the that connects to the network with an attached Moto Mod accessory.
Since Note 9 has no 5G connectivity, we expect the Galaxy S10 to be part of this first wave of 5G phones. Especially since Samsung is investing more than(along with AI, biopharmaceuticals and other efforts).
Front 3D cameras
Note 9 combines iris and face scan to unlock the home screen, but it is not exactly the same as a front camera with secondary 3D mapping. Used by Applethis particular configuration uses an infrared camera, a depth sensor and a dot projector to map 30,000 points on your face and create an artificial 3D scan.
It's a quicker and safer way to recognize your face (even if they do not use the same method), which means that Apple can use its system for digital payments and the most fluid animated emojis with in any case).
True, if Samsung were to implement it on the Galaxy S10, it will copy Apple. But have not we already resigned ourselves to the fact that every telephone company copies every other company in these days? In addition, the Android manufacturer Xiaomi has already taken a leap on the technological infrared mapping bandwagon with its. It's only a matter of time before Samsung joins the fray.
A Remappable Bixby Button
With Note 9, Samsung still makes its digital voice and search assistant accessibleby adding a physical quick start button on the edge. Unfortunately, just like the Galaxy S9 and the previous iterations, you can not remap this button to open something else. All it does is just the launch of Bixby and Bixby.
With the handful of apps and guides available online (by CNET!) That teach users an alternative solution to reprogram the button, it is hoped that Samsung will soon have the clue that people want more options when it comes to this button. Above all because it is physically easy to hit accidentally, resulting in numerous unwanted Bixby throws throughout the day.
