The Korean publication Osen has shared new details about how the biometric unlock that Samsung is going to offer the owners of its future flagship Galaxy S8. It is reported that the fingerprint sensor of the smartphone will be not located on the front panel, and back cover.
Earlier it was reported that the sensor will be built into the screen, which will supposedly occupy the entire front panel of the smartphone. However, internal testing has shown that this arrangement adversely affects the operation of the biometric module. In the result, it was decided to use a separate sensor.
Combine it with the hardware key “Home” will not work due to the lack of such in the new South Korean smartphone, so the scanner will be placed on the back surface. The module can be either built-in camera, specifies the source, or are placed under it, as most Chinese “phones” with dactyloscopus.
Along with the fingerprint scanner, in the Arsenal of the Galaxy S8 will be another device for biometric authentication. It is a separate camera for recognizing the iris of the eye, borrowed from the failed Galaxy Note 7. A new scanner, as reported, will run faster than a cancelled smartphone.
Earlier rumors claim that the Galaxy S8 will have a 5.5-inch Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 3840 x 2160 pixels. The hardware basis of the smartphone will be a 10-nanometer processors Qualcomm Snapdragon and Exynos 830 8895, and 6 or 8 GB of RAM.
