4 things Apple needs to get right with the iPhone 8

  4 things Apple needs to get right with the iPhone 8 Apple will unveil the most anticipated tech product of 2017 this September (or October): the iPhone 8. With tough competition from the Galaxy S8 and LG G6, Apple’s market dominance could hinge on the reception of the upcoming iPhone 8. Here’s what Apple needs to do to succeed.

Because of that, KGI doesn’t think that Samsung will rush to introduce the technology: the “ Galaxy S 9 will have the new selling points of upgraded iris recognition and dual camera, Samsung has no need to risk adopting under- display optical fingerprint solution in a hurry.”

Well that's because Samsung is facing some "technological difficulties" in putting a fingerprint scanner below the display. Rumors have been circulating for nearly a year that the Galaxy Note 9 would feature an in - display fingerprint sensor.

When Samsung released its Galaxy S8 smartphone earlier this year, it did so with an unfortunate design choice: the fingerprint scanner was placed on the back, right next to the phone’s camera. It looks as though that placement might stick around for a while longer, based on a report from KGI Securities.

9to5Google writes that KGI released a new report that claims that Samsung is going to keep the fingerprint scanner on the back of the phone, at least for now. Samsung is apparently ready to keep the scanner on the back of the phone through the Galaxy S9 when it’s released next year, and is aiming to introduce the under-display feature in the eventual Galaxy Note 9.

Samsung Electronics failed to launch a flagship smartphone with an in - display fingerprint scanner last year. This year’s Galaxy S9 also did not debut with such an advanced biometric system. So now the South Korea giant is looking to realize the goal with its upcoming Galaxy Note 9 flagship phablet.

While it’s in an annoying location, its placement on the S8 seems to have been a last-minute change due to difficulties in developing an under-the-display fingerprint reader. 

Samsung isn’t the only company having trouble getting this particular feature right. As smartphone manufacturers push towards devices with edge-to-edge screens, they have to either move some buttons to the rear of the phone, or incorporate their functions into the screen. Apple had been rumored to be working on an in-display fingerprint reader for the next big iPhone, but a recent report from KGI analyst Ming-Chi Kuo claims that the company is going hold off, and might use a virtual button instead.

Because of that, KGI doesn’t think that Samsung will rush to introduce the technology: the “Galaxy S9 will have the new selling points of upgraded iris recognition and dual camera, Samsung has no need to risk adopting under-display optical fingerprint solution in a hurry.”
