The Samsung Galaxy S9 scored better than the iPhone X in Consumer Reports' smartphone rankings, but the iPhone X was the best-selling smartphone in the first quarter. The Galaxy X will likely be expensive to stay in line with competitors.
It remains to be seen the display will match the eye-popping brightness of the Sony Xperia XZ Premium, though, which packs a 5.8in 3840x2160 4K screen with a pixel density of 760ppi. It will be powered by Android 8.0 Oreo with Samsung Experience 9.0.
"It is nearly certain that Note9 has no FOD [Fingerprint-reader On Display]", read the tweet. Since the Galaxy S8 a year ago, Samsung has been moving its flagship launches earlier and earlier, shifting away from the company's once predictable strategy. Initially, there were rumors regarding under-the-display finger sensor in Note 9, which now looks unlikely as per the fresh reports. Samsung is reportedly "dumbing down" the design of the foldable smartphone to be able to finally launch the device.
