Nokia 9 (2018) to feature in-display fingerprint scanner?
Christmas 2017 hadn't even taken place when we showed you a leaked render of the Nokia 9 (2018). Fast forward to earlier this month, and we passed along some further details about the phone that will most likely be Nokia's best for this year. We expect a 5.7-inch near bezel-less display with an aspect ratio of 18:9. We also mentioned that the device, which will be built by HMD Global under license from Nokia, will be powered by the Snapdragon 845 mobile platform.

The Nokia 9 (2018) will also reportedly feature an in-display fingerprint scanner. That is something that we alerted you to earlier this month, and today a fresh report about the embedded biometric reader revealed that a source out of China, characterized as "trusted," seconded that rumor. Vivo is the only manufacturer to deliver an in-screen fingerprint scanner on a handset, although other companies are said to be close behind.

Also of interest to those who might consider the Nokia 9 (2018) as their next phone purchase, there is the possibility that the the display will come with an iPhone X-esque "notch."
