Samsung may have a solution for the former by supposedly employing Substrate-like PCB, or SLP, for the Galaxy S9 next year, which would allow Samsung to shrink the main board and make room for a larger battery.
The new S8 Active model loses the edge-to-edge screen design of the standard models, which is a key selling point of the device, in favor of a frame for improved durability.
According to a report in Etnews, which covers IT sector in Korea, Samsung will be using SLP (Substrate Like PCB). The report went one step further by claiming that "This indicates that businesses that have not secured semiconductor package technologies are likely to fall behind in the future and back-end industries are now in danger of losing businesses ..."
The earliest we are likely to see an embedded fingerprint scanner in a display is the third quarter of 2018 with the launch of the Note9 and latest iPhone.
It is heard that there are actually about 10 companies that are currently supplying HDI to Samsung Electronics.
With consumers using innumerable apps on their handset, having a handset that offers sufficient battery life is a necessity. As number of demands for TSPs that were supplied from outside is starting to disappear, size of related markets for parts and materials is expected to be reduced. And that size has limited how much battery you can cram in whatever space is left. The industry insiders have let slip that only the Exynos variant of the Galaxy S9 will deploy this space saving technology.
Samsung is reportedly working closely with Qualcomm on a next generation Snapdragon processor, speculated to be called the Snapdragon 845. Sources told the publication that the Samsung would expand the application of SLP "once the initial introduction phase of SLP passes by". Y-OCTA combines the touch function and the display into a single manufacturing process. However it is understood that 4 businesses are set to produce SLPs in order to supply them to Samsung Electronics. This kind of impact is now spreading to PCB manufacturers.
The Galaxy S9's motherboard may be stacked per industry insiders.
