Galaxy Note 8: In-screen fingerprint scanner behind screen brightness issues


The firm has also compared the combined sales of Samsung's previous year's releases, Galaxy S7 and S7 Plus for the corresponding period last year and mentions that it was 8.8%.

But those in favour of Samsung Galaxy Note 8's on-screen fingerprint scanner may be wrong.

Display: What would differentiate the Samsung Galaxy S8 would be, above everything else, its display.

Samsung reportedly began to recruit volunteers for a pre-test of Bixby this week, according to industry sources. As for the front panel, expect nothing different from what you already know about the S8, however, the Galaxy Note 8 could feature a bigger display screen. The problem is that, with the on-screen sensor feature, the display is quite a bit brighter at the sensor area than the rest of the screen.

Although a new iPhone hasn't yet been announced, early rumours suggest the iPhone 7 will be getting a replacement later this year - and it's set to be a real game-changer. While there's no disclosed launch for the phone, the Galaxy Samsung team want to have it on the market before the Galaxy Note 8 is presented to the world.

A lot of work has been done to eliminate the need for placing fingerprint sensors at the front of the device.

The market share reported for the two iPhone models is a decent 20.1% while the two Samsung smartphones could muster only a dismal 8.1% in comparison.

Following months of rumours, Samsung announced its iPhone-rivalling Galaxy S8 earlier this year, bringing with it a radical redesign and connectivity to computer accessories. However, and in size it is not immediately possible to distinguish from S8 Plus with screen 6.2 inch due to the fact that Note 8 will be a maximum of 6.4-inch.

Samsung has high hopes for its in-house Bixby voice assistant.

As an additional information, there is a chance that the users in the US, UK and a few more places would receive an update that will enable the voice assistant "Bixby" in their devices.
