Samsung Galaxy S9, S9+ users are finding 'dead zones' in their screen

Kwon Oh-Hyun chief executive officer of Samsung Electronics Co. speaks during the company's extraordinary general meeting of shareholders

Not long ago, BGR reported that analyst Ming-Chi Kuo had said not to expect the Galaxy Note 9's fingerprint sensor under the display. Better to have a reliable fingerprint sensor that works faster than a slow one just for innovation's sake. The handset itself is equipped with a 5.5-inch TFT display panel whose resolution hasn't been disclosed but is likely of the 720p variety, with the official product renders clearly revealing a 16:9 screen. Later, there were reports suggesting that the Galaxy X could be a limited edition device that may only arrive in select markets. The touchscreen issue is a nightmare for affected users because the Galaxy S9 doesn't have a physical home button or navigation keys.

With USB-C and wireless charging capabilities, there's more than one way to keep your Galaxy S9 topped up while in the vehicle. So the dead zone problem isn't localized to a particular region of the screen. By disabling the notifications for Sprint Voicemail, users have been able to get rid of the issue, but this would mean that you won't get notified of incoming voicemails either. The important part to note here is that the issue doesn't exist in any single particular area of the screen, it varies from user to user.

He says the feature now suffers from issues with screen protectors and various different environments affecting the success rate of the under-display fingerprint reader. And for some, factory resetting seems to solve the issue. Stay tuned for all the news and updates related to the issue. A few users have also posted GIFs and videos of themselves demonstrating the problem.

In the US , they will account for between 20 percent to 30 percent; and in China, between 35 and 40 percent. Infiniti is planned to get new EV versions of its cars as well, starting with the year 2021.

Sadly some users face issues with even the most ideal of products. In the past too, several units of the Google Pixel 2 XL reportedly had unresponsive edges wherein the touch input wasn't registered at the edges of the phone's screen. We assumed this could be software problem, as it happens on both the front-facing and rear camera, ruling out an issue with the aperture.

At Samsung, customer satisfaction is core to our business and we aim to deliver the best possible experience. "We are working with affected customers and investigating", told CNET.
