According to sources Samsung will skip the embedded fingerprint scanner on the Note 8 just as they did with the S8 and S8+. A Samsung Electronics official stated, "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 have to continue their research and development on the technology in hopes to include it in the Galaxy S9.
Samsung may be a step behind with the tech as Apple is expected to launch the iPhone 8 with a display embedded fingerprint reader. Without this feature the Note 8 will have one less thing to differentiate itself from the S8+. The Note 8 will reportedly be announced on September 8. We still expect to see a 6.3" Infinity Display and a dual lens camera.
