Galaxy Note 8 Alleged Press Images Shows no Front-Mounted Fingerprint Reader – Rear-facing Reader at an Even More Difficult Position
Looks like Samsung might be gearing itself for an onslaught of criticism, and this might revolve around the Galaxy Note 8 unveiling. According to the latest alleged press renders of the smartphone, it’s fingerprint reader might be positioned in an even more awkward position as opposed to the Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S8+.
Fingerprint Reader Positioned Right Next to Dual-Camera on Galaxy Note 8 – Accessing it Might Become Difficult Thanks to Slightly Larger Display
Looking at these press renders, we feel that we cannot entirely blame Samsung for all these problems as the tech giant’s partners have been unable to deliver a viable solution to incorporate a fingerprint reader beneath the display. However, this also does not allow Samsung to make it even more difficult for future consumers to unlock the Galaxy Note 8, at least according to these renders. Keep in mind that rumors are pitting the Note 8 to feature a 6.3-inch diagonal display, making it slightly larger than the Galaxy S8.
Even a small difference in screen size means that the phone’s fingerprint reader will be harder to access, leaving users to search for more flexible solutions to unlock their devices. Another thing that caught our eye is the shape of the fingerprint reader. We thought that with the criticism shot on the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+, we could be seeing a circular reader that could actually make it easier for users to feel out with their fingers, but it looks like that is not going to be the case.
We honestly hope that the actual phone’s fingerprint reader looks far different than what you guys are looking at these images, otherwise, it is going to be a long wait for the Galaxy S9, which might actually get this much-needed change. The things that we can look forward to are the internals. Galaxy Note 8 has been rumored to feature a Snapdragon 836. According to previous rumors, the clock speed of the more powerful cores will be able to reach 2.50GHz, while the GPU clock speed will be running at 740MHz.
In addition, the dual-camera should be able to work its magic quite nicely, and it is also something that was sorely lacking from the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+.
