The Galaxy S8 was rumored to have its fingerprint sensor integrated into its display for the longest time but that’s not how it ended up being. The Galaxy S8’s fingerprint sensor has been repositioned at the back of the device just alongside the camera. The latest purported schematics for the Galaxy Note 8 suggest that the upcoming flagship is going to have its fingerprint sensor at the back as well.

Samsung was previously rumored to introduce its optical fingerprint sensor with the Galaxy Note 8. That would have meant that the new flagship would have its sensor integrated into the display itself thus eliminating the need for a sensor at the back.

The leaked schematics suggest that the Galaxy Note 8 is going to have a round fingerprint sensor which is going to be placed at the back just below the camera. It’s not going to be an ordinary mobile camera.

The Galaxy Note 8 is also expected to feature a dual camera system. The schematics suggest this as well while also highlighting the possibility that the handset might have dual speakers as well.

It’s pertinent to mention here that nothing has been officially confirmed by Samsung as yet so nothing is set in stone for now. The company is not due to unveil the Galaxy Note 8 for a couple of months so it’s going to take some time before we know for sure what the Galaxy Note 8 brings to the table.
