Samsung got into a big trouble when its ambitious product, Galaxy Note 7, was not only discontinued but also recalled over faulty battery in several handsets. It marred the image of the company as it was the Note series that made it famous. So, it is natural for Samsung fans to expect the best from the upcoming Galaxy Note 8 but you could be in for a disappointment if this piece of information true. It is reported that the upcoming Note device will miss out one feature that fans would love to see.
The South Korean technology giant is expected to unveil the Galaxy Note 8 in August before releasing it into the market in September. The report holds some waters as the ill-fated Galaxy Note 7 was released at around the same time last year.
Not much has been leaked on the Galaxy Note 8 but the latest we heard was that the device will not have on-screen fingerprint reader.
"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," said a Samsung Electronics official, according to News.Naver (via SamMobile). Meanwhile, Samsung is working with other companies on the technology in the hope of introducing it to its future devices.
This will come as a disappointment for Samsung fans as the technology was expected to be seen in the recently released Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ devices but it didn't happen. And again, the on-screen fingerprint reader feature won't be ready for the upcoming Galaxy Note 8 device.
The Galaxy Note 8 is expected to sport a 6.3-inch Infinity Display, a dual rear camera – 12MP wide-angle camera and 13MP telephoto lens, an autofocus front-snapper, an iris scanner, and an AI-powered digital voice assistant Bixby.
