It is back in October previous year that reports of Note 9 coming with fingerprint sensor under the display surfaced online. It seems that the project that was supposed to bring the embedded fingerprint sensor to Note 9 has been stopped recently due to some technical difficulties.

This means that whenever a Samsung user sends an emoji to another user he would himself see the redesigned one, whereas the receiving party would see the standard one. The earlier reports claimed that the phablet will boast a fingerprint sensor placed underneath the display.

The downsides are that they are expensive, have low yields, and are slower to recognize the fingerprint as compared to conventional fingerprint sensors.
