Galaxy S8 may have fingerprint sensor next to camera’s lens

Samsung’s Galaxy S8 smartphone won’t have the typical home button, and the fingerprint sensor will be placed next to the camera’s lens, recently leaked schematics suggested.

Since rumors started swirling that the Samsung Galaxy S8 will be dropping the typical home button, many wondered where the fingerprint sensor will be placed by the manufacturer. According to latest leaks, the fingerprint sensor will be placed next to the camera’s lens, rather than at the back middle portion of the smartphone.

The rumored place of the fingerprint sensor will be an odd placement. But, nothing can be confirmed about the handset as aforementioned information is part of just rumors, which are based on some recently leaked photos of an alleged case for the Galaxy S8.

It is also possible that the case maker might be creating cases based on rumors swirling around the web, or it may be a tactic to boost hype about the upcoming smartphone. However, all these reports should be taken with a pinch of salt as the company hasn’t confirmed anything about the device.

The Samsung Galaxy S8 won’t be introduced at the upcoming MWC 2017 as the South Korean electronics giant has already confirmed. Instead, some reports are suggesting a late March unveiling of the handset. Thus, Samsung fans have to wait a little more to find out more about the eagerly-awaited smartphone.
