When Samsung revealed the Galaxy S8 and S8+, one of the biggest downsides of the phone was the position of the fingerprint sensor, placed right next to the camera on the back of the phone.

 

We know that Samsung has planned to embed the fingerprint sensor under the glass on the front of the device, but due to certain problems, they had to give up on the idea.

It was expected that the company would resolve the problem and embed the biometric fingerprint reader under the phone's display on the upcoming Galaxy Note8.

 

However, new reports claim that Samsung is still struggling with this feature and that the Note8 might arrive without it. According to those reports, Samsung knows how to build the scanner, but the problem is reportedly security related.

 

The same reports mention another issue - the phone doesn't understand if the user is trying to unlock the phone or just use it.

 

The Note8, rumored to be announced in September, should have a rear dual setup and feature Qualcomm's Snapdragon 835.
