Hit Or Miss: Samsung Galaxy S8's Fingerprint Scanner Is Sitting Right Next To The Rear Camera
Samsung is certainly benefiting from the hype created by one of its flagship phones. Apparently, the tech giant's Galaxy S8 is getting its airtime from a series of leaks thanks to Evan Blass.
Days before one of the company's biggest reveal, fans are already getting a glimpse of the phone. Blass, a known prolific smartphone tipster, may have given us a detail of one of the S8's features. Believe it or not, Samsung's new phone has a fingerprint scanner near the rear camera.
Ergonomic wise, a few hits and misses might be normal for a couple of days. It's likely that owners might have to bring a handy microfiber cloth in case of a foggy camera. Why? Because smudging your rear camera with your index fingerprint will be a routine for a few days.
The Galaxy S8's peculiar design might either be a good one or a bad one altogether. But, it might be Samsung's way of deviating from the common template of most smartphones.
According to The Verge, the South Korean company made a smart choice about the design. It could be Samsung's way of further keeping your eyes off at the already tiny bezels at the top and bottom of the S8.
So far, Blass has already leaked the phone's colors. In his tweets, he revealed that the S8 color hues are arctic silver, black sky, and orchid gray. Luckily Samsung will be unveiling the phone on March 29, days away before we can confirm the leaks.
The South Korean multinational company so far is keeping its cool by not giving any details. Samsung has not denied nor confirmed the leaked content, including several marketing materials.
Judging from the overall design, it is no doubt that its a keeper. The fingerprint scanner might be a little inconvenient but owners will have to accept that it's part of the design. The Galaxy S8 is reportedly going on sale in April, better save up for next month!
