Wednesday in new York hosted a presentation of the new flagship smartphones of Samsung Galaxy and Galaxy S8 S8+. One of the innovations of the device proved to be quite controversial that the performance of the first tests of new products.
The main difference between the new models of smartphones from their predecessors — larger display (5.8 inch the Galaxy S8 and 6.2 inch Galaxy S8+). The dimensions of the devices could save the account information of the upper and lower platforms to a minimum and the rejection button with integrated fingerprint scanner on the front panel. Now biometric module located on the back side of your smartphone near the camera.
Exploring Galaxy S8 observers found a curious message in the Camera. “Clean camera lenses allow you to shoot better photos. Wipe the lens of the camera to continue taking great pictures,” reads the inscription in the center of the screen.
Thus Samsung acknowledged that the fingerprint scanner of the new flagship is located in the wrong place. Active use of the module outside the display and near the main camera, can contaminate the lens from accidental touches with your fingers.
In this case Samsung has offered users other authentication methods, in particular the scanner of the iris and facial recognition system.
