In-screen fingerprint technology not ready for the Galaxy Note 8, states report

The Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ are two gorgeous devices launched by Samsung this year. But even admirers of the two handsets will tell you, Samsung got the fingerprint scanner placement wrong. The back placed fingerprint sensor was used because Samsung couldn’t get the in-screen fingerprint technology ready in time. But experts had high hopes that they would see the technology in the Galaxy Note 8. Now it turns out, they might not.


A Korean news publication, News1, quoted a Samsung official saying “We made every effort to install a display-integrated fingerprint sensor on Galaxy Note 8, but we decided not to install it on this strategic phone due to various technical limitations such as security.”

It means that Samsung has the technology ready to work but it is not yet secure enough. to implement. But there is still hope. As the Korean company hasn’t given up on the technology. Especially after investing heavily in the new technology.

Samsung could at least make a change of the current oval-shaped sensor being used in its flagships. Since it is less accurate than the circular-shaped sensor which is used in the likes of Google Pixel, the LG G6 and iPhone 7. We just hope Samsung doesn’t put the sensor back in the same place as the Galaxy S8.
