Side-mounted Fingerprint Sensor

This is discussion with a little ELI5 mixed in.
Samsung recently released a new flip phone. While reading the specs, I found them to be similar to the Note 9 other than it having 2 screens. I also noticed that it has a side-mounted fingerprint sensor. I know Sony has made a phone with one, as have a handful of Chinese phonemakers - think ZTE, Huawei, Meizu.
I think I'd much rather have it on the side of my phone than have a big conspicuous circle on the back of my phone. I know that we're (hopefully) about to move into an era where the sensor is underneath the screen or use our face more consistently, so I guess my question is: why hasn't/wasn't this been used in more devices? thegadgetwire.com/kodi/thegadgetwire.com/tutuapp/thegadgetwire.com/appvalley/
