When Samsung released its Galaxy S8 smartphone earlier this year, it did so with an unfortunate design choice: the fingerprint scanner was placed on the back, right next to the phone’s camera. It looks as though that placement might stick around for a while longer, based on a report from KGI Securities.

9to5Google writes that KGI released a new report that claims that Samsung is going to keep the fingerprint scanner on the back of the phone, at least for now. Samsung is apparently ready to keep the scanner on the back of the phone through the Galaxy S9 when it’s released next year, and is aiming to introduce the under-display feature in the eventual Galaxy Note 9.

Apple had been rumored to be working on an in-display fingerprint reader for the next big iPhone, but a recent report from KGI analyst Ming-Chi Kuo claims that the company is going hold off, and might use a virtual button instead.
