The Samsung Galaxy S8 will be presented in a couple of weeks, but now thanks to numerous leaks, you know all of the main characteristics and features of the product. According to analysts, there is every reason to believe that the South Korean flagship will not be able to resist his main rival this year when it comes to completely new features.
Before the first leaks about the Galaxy S8, it was already known that the iPhone 8 will receive a large display, occupying almost the entire front panel. It was reported that Apple will abandon the brand the key “Home”, and the fingerprint scanner will be built directly into the smartphone display. This was followed by rumors that Samsung will follow the same decisions.
However, after some time it became clear that the Galaxy S8 will not display that can read fingerprints and the sensor will just move to the back cover and will be located near to the main camera. The company Synaptics, which cooperated with Samsung, did not have time to complete the development on time, and at the last moment the decision was made to move the scanner on the back panel.
Meanwhile Apple has all the necessary for the implementation of this technology. According to reports, the company is working on a fingerprint sensor built into the screen of a smartphone. It is unknown exactly how users will unlock the display and carry out the payment through Apple Pay: placing the finger anywhere on the screen or in a designated area. However, if Apple will implement the features of this technology, it will be a big step forward for the industry.
It is known that the Galaxy S8 will come with a iris scanner eye and advanced software for facial recognition that will allow you to unlock your device in less than 0.1 seconds. According to rumors, Apple also plans to introduce a solution for scanning the iris of the eyes and face of the user.
