The Galaxy Note 8 May Arrive Sooner Than Expected But May Lack One Key Feature
The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will be coming sooner than previously rumored according to the latest rumor. However, the much-awaited flagship phablet may launch without one vital feature that has long been expected of it.
Samsung was supposed to unveil the Galaxy Note 8 sometime in late August or September as previous rumors indicated. It was supposed to be launched during the 2017 Internationale Funkausstellung or IFA Berlin but a new rumor says the Galaxy Note 8 will be unveiled sooner than that.
Weibo user Ice Universe shared the rumor on Monday through the Chinese website. BGR reported that the launch of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will now take place on the third week of August during an event in New York City.
If the launch date for the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is indeed nearer than expected, then that leaves little time for the Korean tech giant to fix its reported issues with the fingerprint sensor. A previous leak showed that there is no awkwardly placed sensor on the back of the Galaxy Note 8 similar to what they did with the Galaxy S8. This led many to think that the fingerprint sensor would be integrated under the display.
However, it looks like Samsung is having some difficulty with the integrated fingerprint scanner. The likely reason is that there is uneven brightness on the display particularly on the spot where the fingerprint sensor was. Apparently, the said area appeared brighter than the rest of the display. As it stands, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will likely ditch the fingerprint scanner completely. Forbes also mentioned that another possible alternative is to put the sensor back at the rear of the Galaxy Note 8 but not beside the camera where it will be hard to reach. Another option is to bring back the home button and integrate the fingerprint sensor into it.
