Previous rumors suggested that the new Samsung Galaxy S8 will not be coming with a home button and that the fingerprint sensor will be embedded into the display screen this time around but it looks like that might not happen after all.
A lot of people were looking forward to experience the new display integrated fingerprint sensor but some reported are now saying that it won’t happen because Synaptics, the company of Samsung investing into creating the tech failed to make it work.
In the end, Samsung decided to ditch the plan for some and fit a back fingerprint sensor on the Samsung Galaxy S8. The fans were of course not too happy about the news but we would take a working physical button any day if the alternative was to get a fingerprint sensor that might or might not work.
Samsung can’t really afford to take any major risk right now so playing it safe was the right move.
