What also the device might feature, is the well-known iris recognition sensor from their Galaxy Note 7. This sensor is set to be faster than the other ones. We already know that the Galaxy S8 will not have home button, so the position of their fingerprint scanner comes in question. And according to the rumor, the place of the scanner as we said might take place on the back of the device. This design looks very familiar to the Google Pixel’s fingerprint scanner that has the same position.
As expected, Samsung has not yet commented on any of these rumors. It is also too soon to certainly know where the fingerprint scanner will be placed on the Galaxy S8. The release of the device is still set on February 2017 at MWC.
