I will never get a phone with a fingerprint sensor at the back. Im still own the s7. If note 8 will fail I will consider another phone for the 1st time since s2...
Common Samsung - there has to be a way.
No on-screen fingerprint scanner will be disastrous for this device's success.
I want this phone so bad but I need a reason to get it over the S8+. A stylus and 2 cameras is not enough to supercede a smaller battery.
I'm no tech expert and have no technical knowledge about sensors but i'm also curious about how it actually works. Can't they only activate the sensor when a specific command is activated? For example, when you want to pay using android pay, a pop up will appear, and to trigger the sensor maybe it can tell us to lay our finger for a couple seconds then it start to scan. And this command can only be activated when a fingerprint authentication is needed by the app (for android pay, play store, or maybe app lock).
I don't know but i think this makes sense, and i believe samsung have figured something like this. Maybe it just can't so i hope to hear a more technical explanation from someone who know about how sensors works and explain to me why it won't work that way.
I have been waiting for this phone for so long..first the note 7 (the big bang) then s8 (disappointment) and now this.Samsung better not launch the phone at all! You seem so unsecure that i am seriously thinking of moving to a more serious company.
Polius, 08 Jun 2017If it disabled after unlocked then how would you use it for security like opening secure folde... moreyes yes yes...finally....i have been asking this since iphone got rid of their clickable home button...how will the phone recognize and differentiate a fingerprint authentication vs a return to home buttn?? finally someone else on gsma commented the same thing
Can make 2 display for finger print scanner. On the display down side.
.alpha, 08 Jun 2017I thought Apple and Samsung were working on this together as Samsung is the supplier of iPhone... moreBecause Apple had secret labs around the world like Taiwan, Mainland China, Israel, America, and many more to come.
The Note 8 will just an a S8 Plus with a slightly bigger screen and an S Pen. Smaller battery too
Anonymous, 08 Jun 2017If they can't implement it, at least put the scanner on the back in the centre below the camer... morethat is most likely where they intend to put it.. due to the fact that the phone will be longer and the camera glass more elongated to fit to lenses.. it would be suitable at the bottom
I thought Apple and Samsung were working on this together as Samsung is the supplier of iPhone 8's panel. You are telling me Apple applied secret sauce and make it work but Samsung can't?
Samsung are probably saving this for next year's flagship. Holding back some for next year.
FPC has made this successfully for Xiaomi Mi6 and Huawei. Why can't samsung buy the sensor from them?
If Samsung is facing delays with its implementation of the onscreen fingerprint scanner then so is Apple for its iPhone considering where Apple gets its tech from.
Thumb for unlock and middle finger for lock..problem solved..lmao..
