Yesterday, a leaked render of the Galaxy Note 8 gave every Samsung fan something to look forward to. It showed everyone a glimpse of what the flagship phablet will look like and what it will have, most notably, an on screen finger print scanner. However, it looks like Samsung will miss out again on the much-awaited feature for the Galaxy Note 8.
According to a report from South Korean web portal Naver, a Samsung Electronics official was quoted as saying the following statement “We made every effort to install a display-integrated fingerprint sensor on Galaxy Note 8, but we decided not to install it on this strategic phone due to various technical limitations such as security.” Samsung will continue its R&D with CrucialTec, a South Korean firm that manufactures optical trackpads and fingerprint scanners. The Galaxy Note 8 is scheduled to be unveiled in September.
