The highly anticipated Galaxy S8 has a bevy of rumors and speculations on the internet these days. The latest tittle-tattle about the upcoming flagship by Samsung hints that Galaxy S8 will feature iris scanner and rear-mounted fingerprint sensor. The earlier rumors indicated that Samsung Galaxy S8 would opt and borrow the Samsung Galaxy Note 7’s thin Y-OCTA display and also have an optical fingerprint reader which will be embedded into the screen.
Galaxy S8 Will Feature Iris Scanner And Rear-Mounted Fingerprint Sensor
The primary and main reason behind this change in the strategy is because of inaccuracy of fingerprint sensor. Samsung finds that inaccuracy through the initial testing of the fingerprint sensor. So, a dedicated sensor was needed. Other than this, Samsung already planned to kill the physical home button, so the back panel was the only place for a fingerprint sensor. Earlier this week, Synaptics (Samsung component supplier) announced that Samsung would have its first optical fingerprint scanner.
If we talk about the iris scanner, then Samsung also coming up with this feature too. It will be quite same as the Galaxy Note 7 scanner. However, it will be much faster than the Galaxy Note 7.
Galaxy S8 Updates
The latest Korean reports said that Galaxy S8 would not have a physical home button. We are hearing this rumor for many days from different sources. Probably there are high chances of this story to be true.
The report also suggested that Samsung Galaxy S8 would be an entirely screen, bezel-free display, and no dual lens rear camera. Samsung might also ditch the 3.5 mm headphone jack by following the footsteps of iPhone 7.
Moreover, other news indicated that Galaxy S8 would come with Qualcomm Snap Dragon 835 processor and Exynos 8895 for the devices which will sell outside the US.
Furthermore, latest rumor published on top sites couple of days ago about the Bluetooth 5.0. These all specs and features will offer a top notch experience and Samsung would make up for the Galaxy Note 7 fiasco.
