Just a strong hunch on my part.
Doubt it, but wonder if it's possible if they fitted the S9818 with a built in IR LED opposed to a VCSEL.
Yeah, PTE would fit (size), but it would be a strong PTE revision - doesn't look like it at least.
Getting a VCSEL sensor to work with IR LED seems very adventurous but ofc it's still possible (sensor needs to pick only one source of light though). No idea and no guarantees on what would be the performance, and how the double lens would be made (LED would need to be very strong too, since it would feed the lens from the side). Seems too tricky, but not out of reach for Razer.
If it was a S9818 with full package (lens...) then only the smallest sensors might fit there, so a 3050 would not be out of the question, or even something smaller like one of the SoC sensors they have at Avago (more basic though).
We'll see how it works
