No evolutionary technology then no reason to upgrade phone. Fingerprint scanner underneath screen is a big thing. Nobody likes it at the back la

Duno what new things are they going to add in so that consumers will want to buy the phone. I don't like the ar emoji thing which is gimmick. Iphone x has ar emoji which is so perfect imo but my friends also rarely use. If nothing new but just incremental upgrade like better cam and soc, then note 8 is really good enough that will age very gracefully for 3 to 4years, without having to pay for the latest smartphone

Or you know you can get one of Samsung's fast wireless chargers which has it propped up so you can just use face detection or intelligent scan (Iris & Face) to unlock the device

Hopefully, they stop increasing the physical size. The size for Note7 is just nice liao, they bump up to the current 6.3 on Note8. Tough to big out for run or small pockets

The pics seem to suggest a lack of a physical fingerprint sensor (FPS).....hmmm...... and earlier rumours say on-screen FPS may not be available for Note 9..... but is a step forward if Samsung is finally able to implement the on-screen FPS. Fingers-crossed.
