With incremental updates like aa higher capacity battery and a slightly larger display, Samsung's new does not accurately provide any new grounding technology.
In itsCNET editor Jessica Dolcourt said the phone "offers real innovations over last year's Note 8." Samsung can save the good things for its next flagship telephones in 2019 – yes, we're thinking so far ahead ̵
In addition to the predictable advances we expect to see next year (like running the latestOS out of the box, you have the next Snapdragon processor from Qualcomm and improved camera features in general), we have compiled a list of features that we did not get in Note 9 features that we hope Samsung can only hold on to the next Galaxy S10 round.
Fingerprint Reader On Screen
Note The 9 fingerprint reader is now located under the rear cameras. This is a noticeablethat had the sensor right next to the camera lenses. While greasy fingerprints are less likely to stain the camera with this new location, an even better placement for the reader will be within or below the display.
Cold Fingerprint On Display, or FOD, we have already seen this technology inand . announced in March, it also has. We expect the feature to roll out in many more phones in the near future, with analyst IHS Markit predicting that it will be available on .
With 9-inch expansive 6.4-inch screen, the phone definitely had room for it. Unfortunately, this is a trend waiting in the wings, so we may have to wait for.
Known assoon approaches the next generation of high-speed cellular technology, with broad US availability expected once in 2019 by 2020. U.S. carriers, for example, and have already established 5G networks and devices, while by building 350,000 new mobile phone tower since 2015.  Many telephone builders already have to make 5G phones next year, including Samsung. And last week, Motorola showed its which connects to 5G networks with an attached Moto Mod accessory.
Because Not 9we expect the Galaxy S10 to be part of this early 5G wave of phones. Especially since Samsung puts more than (along with AI, biopharmaceutical products and other measures).
3D Forward Cameras
Note 9 combines iris and face scanning to unlock the home screen, but it's not exactly the same as a secondary 3D mapping front-facing camera. Employed bythis particular setup uses an infrared camera, depth sensor, and point projector to map 30,000 points on your face and create an artificial 3D scan.
It's a faster and safer way to recognize your face onbut do not use the same method), which means Apple can use its system of digital payments and smoother animated emojis – compared to anyway.
True, if Samsung were to implement this on the Galaxy S10, it would be to copy Apple. But have we not already resigned to the fact that all telephone companies are copying each other today? In addition, Android manufacturer Xiaomi already jumped on the infrared mapping technology bandwagon with its. It's just a matter of time until Samsung joins Fray as well.
A remappable Bixby button
With note 9, Samsung's digital voice and search assistantis available from a physical quick-launch button on the left edge. Unfortunately, just like the Galaxy S9 and iterations before it, you can not surround this button to open anything else. All it takes is to start Bixby and Bixby alone.
With the handful of apps and guides available online () that teaches users a solution to reprogramming the button, hopefully Samsung will soon find people want more options when it comes to this button. Especially since it's physically easy to hit by accident, resulting in many unwanted Bixby launches throughout the day.
