Samsung Galaxy S8 Won't Be Coming With An Under-Screen Fingerprint Scanner


The Galaxy S8 is the first Samsung smartphone in the S Series that doesn't come with the trademark home button, this looks like a big step for the Korean Company but they had actually wanted to go even bolder - the Galaxy S8 was planned to use the fingerprint technology that puts the scanner under the glass and lets you unlock the phone by placing a finger on the screen.




It decided to implement the fingerprint technology underneath the AMOLED display and poured resources into Synaptics Optical Technologies, but the results were very "frustrating" .



With the production imminent, the company decided to place the fingerprint scanner on the back, right next to the camera, which explains its unorthodox location.

Apple is also taking a cue from Samsung by removing its home button from the next iPhone and will have a ‘Function Area’ that resembles a Touch Bar. Apple is also interested in the onscreen fingerprint scanner and having six more months than Samsung it might actually get it. So it's an advantage Apple might just use to beat Samsung.
