Smartphones Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 + lost the traditional home button, and the fingerprint scanner moved to the back panel. This disappointed many, expecting that Samsung in its flagships integrates the scanner into the display. Now hopes are placed on the heir of the notorious Galaxy Note 7. Nevertheless, according to the latest reports, Samsung does not implement a screen fingerprint scanner and in Galaxy Note 8. This was reported by the Korean edition of Naver.
The message is sent to the representative of Samsung, who said that the company made a lot of efforts to install the scanner integrated into the display in Galaxy Note 8, but it was decided not to install it in a strategically important phone due to various technical limitations such as security. Samsung Electronics plans to continue research and development with companies like CrucialTec, which has technology. CrucialTec is a Korean company that produces optical trackpads and fingerprint scanners. According to earlier rumors, Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is equipped with a noticeably larger display than the predecessor – a diagonal of 6.4 or 6.3 inches. The screen is made using Super AMOLED technology, and the resolution will be QHD + or 4K. With a discount on the changed proportions, 4K can mean, for example, 4428 x 2160 pixels. The basis should lie Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processors or proprietary Exynos 9-series, 6 GB of operating and up to 256 GB of internal flash memory. Galaxy Note 8 can be the first Samsung smartphone with a dual camera. Camera Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will receive a 12-megapixel wide-angle module and a 13-megapixel telephoto module, together providing a 3x optical zoom. A similar design we saw in the iPhone 7 Plus. Galaxy Note 8 will receive a Galaxy S8-style design with very small edges at the top and bottom of the display without the traditional home button under the screen, and with a dedicated button for the Bixby voice assistant on the left side, next to the volume controls. Earlier it was assumed that the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 debut could take place at IFA 2017, which will be held from September 1 to 6 in Berlin.
