It must have Pros and cons, but I definitely wouldn't be the first guinea pig to experience the slightly better feature.
It's the 2018 LG Stylo 4 Plus.. LG's only Flagship device with an S-Pen like the Note 8.
Anonymous, 13 Dec 2017DidnÂ’t Samsung say they had trouble with security using this? That was why they dropped it on... moreNo, the hardware is using the same security as the ones they already use. They dropped it because they couldn't get the brightness uniformity right. Seems like That's finally fixed, so I wouldn't be surprised if Samsung will do a surprise early announcement at CES.

It might be LG but they just recently launched the V30. I don't believe Sony will introduce it since they are hardheaded. They don't innovate anymore.
I think it might be samsung since they always innovate.
Google may also be up for a surprise. Let's wait and see
HPe, 13 Dec 2017Vivo isn't a tier 1 manufacturer. Sony is barely still there at this stage. Sony is also aller... moreSony sold their oled tech to LG, not Samsung.
It was very expensive when they had a 11" oled tv in Japan back 2008.
Now they have been working with Panasonic.
Both have oled tv
Vivo isn't a tier 1 manufacturer. Sony is barely still there at this stage. Sony is also allergic to OLED, since the day they stupidly sold off all of their IP to Samsung and others. So, LG? OR is Samsung cheeky and launching early to capitalize on the bad press The Notch is struggling to shake off?
they said top 5 OEM.
not apple of course,
we know it's not Samsung S9 - because only the Note9 would have one
it's not Oppo or Vivo - because they work with qualcomm and not synaptics
So only Huawei remains - so P11
it's gonna be LG.
most probably G7, but could be a mid-range model and not a flagship like G7 (a mid-range model - to be on the safe side, and not risk the flagship).
It could also be HTC.
But it won't be Sony. Sony is a late-adopter, not an early one...
The source news (Synaptics) says a "Tier 1" phone, ie flagship, from a OEM that is in the Top 5. This means the Q1 2018 flagship device from either Apple, Samsung, Huawei, Oppo, Vivo, or Xiaomi.
Since I figure its not Apple, that leaves the five others.
It was rumoured to be the Samsung Galaxy S9, so it could be that.
Or the Huawei P11, very likely.
Or the Oppo R12/OnePlus 6, not likely.
Or the Vivo Xplay7, likely, but its being developed by Qualcomm nor Synaptics.
Or the Xiaomi Mi 7, quite likely.
It feels like a race at this moment.
Oh, while other OEMs like LG, HTC, Moto, Sony, Nokia, Blackberry flagship devices are clearly not in the Top 5 OEM list, this doesn't necessarily exclude them. Though, I would assume it does exclude OEMs like Lenovo, ZTE, Meizu, Asus, etc etc.
Georgio, 12 Dec 2017You are the one who's calling Samsung (xamxung). After I saw that I called apple (crapple) to ... moreLol ahhh ok, I didn't use that term for Samsung, as I said I just copied the list that another poster posted and referred to him/her as a fanboy, I would never use those terms myself.
I see why you said crapple now :) understand, it's cool
