The recent rumors indicate that the Galaxy Note 8, which is expected to be released in August, will come with a fingerprint sensor on the screen; however, it seems that the rumors will not be correct. A company official said that they tried to insert a fingerprint sensor into the screen in the device However, they decided not to place it because of various technical constraints such as security restrictions. This may be considered an official statement; however, this does not mean that the rumors were false and may be based on prototype models of the device.
Samsung is still trying to build a fingerprint sensor on the screen, but there is still a lot of work to do, so it’s possible to see this technology on the Samsung Galaxy S9, but the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will come with a fingerprint sensor on the back like the Samsung Galaxy S8.
The article also notes that Apple has successfully built a fingerprint sensor on the iPhone 8 screen, but it is not clear where it came from. If Apple succeeds in doing so, it will be the first in the market, with iPhone 8 officially expected in September or October.
