Many of the Galaxy S8 users have shared the drawback of having a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner. The users just couldn't take their photos clearly as their finger cut off the camera edges.

Because of the drawbacks, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 enthusiastic have hoped that the company might replace this feature.

It has been so long that the company is working on sub-screen sensors and the manufacturers openly admitting it.

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is going to feature 6.4-inch curved display just like Samsung Galaxy S8. The display is going to hold the title of one of the biggest display till date and will include QHD+ Infinity technology. The device will also have a dual camera set up just like the other Chinese devices like LG, OnePlus and Huawei. The device is going to support Samsung's very first AI Bixby and its S pen.
