Don't Wait For An In-Display Fingerprint Sensor
It's early, but LG V40 rumors suggest the company isn't quite ready to go back to the drawing board. Basically, expect good things but nothing revolutionary, at least not until 2019. And even though the phone has a codename of "Storm" we're not sure it's a perfect storm just yet for all the features people want.
One that consistently comes up in the rumor mill is an under-the-display (or in-display) fingerprint scanner. A few manufacturers are doing this already, but the technology just isn't ready for primetime smartphones yet. The Galaxy Note 9 passed up this feature, and the new iPhones won't have it either.
If you're waiting for the V40 because you think it'll have an amazing display with a fast fingerprint scanner magically built-in, don't. We can expect the same 2-3 cameras on the back, and a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner like LG's offered for several years now.
As for an in-display fingerprint scanner, we think 2019 will finally be the year.
This will be a great phone just make sure your hopes and expectations aren't too high.
