The South tech giant and the largest smartphone maker in the world Samsung is said to use fingerprint sensors made by a Taiwanese manufacturer in its upcoming flagship Galaxy S9. According to sources reporting representatives from different industries, Samsung is in talks with a Taiwanese manufacturer of fingerprint scanners to buy sensors for its upcoming flagship Samsung Galaxy S9.
The said Taiwanese company specializes in fingerprint recognition devices and has its headquarters in Taiwan. Though Samsung has not previously included fingerprint sensors made by this company in its flagship phones like the S and Note series, It has been using fingerprint scanner by the Taiwanese company in its low and mid-range phones.
For flagship phones, Samsung used to buy fingerprint scanners from an American company which seems to be changing now. Samsung sells at least 50 to 60 million flagship phones year and a fingerprint scanner cost around $2 per unit it will be a big win for the Taiwanese company and a big loss for the American company if the talks succeed.
Citing another report from Evan Blass, the Galaxy S9 will be announced next January at CES 2018 in Las Vegas. The phone will ship with Snapdragon 845 under the hood. The design is said to be similar to the Galaxy S8 with slightly reduced bezels.
