The Samsung Galaxy S8 turned out very interesting, different from the previous model. But not without highly contentious issues, particularly a poorly positioned the fingerprint scanner located on the rear panel with the camera what lens is in danger of being permanently stained. According to informed sources, the engineers and designers at Samsung have made such a serious ergonomic blunder because of the great haste with the launch of new products.
As it became known Cowen and Company analyst Timothy Arcuri, currently Apple are in serious thought because of the biometric module in the anniversary of the iPhone 8. Because of the fundamental change of design and a new fingerprint scanner embedded directly in the display panel, the suppliers do not provide the required production volumes. Apple is planning to use embedded under the glass modules of the company AuthenTec, but these components are reported to be a bottleneck in the production of iPhone 8.
New Apple OLED display has several titles, including the iPhone 8, iPhone X and iPhone Pro. Now there are three options for further developments. First, Apple may fully abandon the fingerprint scanner, the new product, replacing it with technology to identify users in the face. This way we can see Galaxy S8, are very unreliable, so it’s unlikely.
Also Apple can use less futuristic iPhone design, by placing the fingerprint scanner on the back cover of the smartphone, writes Arcuri. Previously, several sources wrote about it: Touch ID can be embedded in the Apple logo.
Finally, Apple may postpone the launch of the iPhone until, until will not solve problems with the supply of components. In March this year, the publication MacOtakara wrote that the iPhone 7s and 7s Plus will be released in September, and the iPhone 8 may be substantially delayed.
In early April, Barclays analysts said that the announcement of the new flagship Apple held in September, but sales will start later. After you start taking pre-orders, the waiting time for delivery can rapidly increase to several weeks. In this regard, in the free market a new smartphone can be found only towards the end of the year.
