Having Samsung Experience over the latest Android 7.0 Nougat, which will run from the factory (almost certainly) on new devices, there is a clear goal in this transition between Samsung interfaces. The company is trying to make the user experience even better by simplifying processes and making the system more user-friendly.
The Samsung Galaxy S8 Fingerprint Sensor
When rumors about the new terminal started to emerge, the location of your fingerprint reader was a hotly debated topic. As it is customary for devices in the Galaxy S line to merge this player with your Home Button, the front end would be the most anticipated place to house this common system these days.
Given the new ergonomics of the Galaxy S8 and S8 +, with a screen that occupies almost the entire front of the terminal, rumors have emerged that this sensor may be embedded in the front glass screen itself. As you can see from the panoply of leaks that has come up, this will not happen, with this sensor now flanking the rear camera of the Galaxy S8.
But why didn't Samsung decide to include this innovative system in its new flagship? The question seems more than pertinent, especially given that the company would have access to this technology, courtesy of Synaptics, one of its main suppliers, which owns this system.
Well, the answer to this question comes from the The Korea Herald. As revealed by this site, the integration of this system was the main impediment of time. Both companies conducted several tests, which revealed frustrating results.
All of this led to a change of plans at the last minute, as their integration would lead to a long delay in launching the new device, and the South Korean company could not afford it, especially after the early exit of the market. Galaxy Note 7
Not only could the time spent developing this technology have been a waste of time, but it will also make Samsung not the first to bring this type of system to its terminals. With Apple being able to integrate a similar system into its new iPhones, it's a big loss to its main rival in the market.
Samsung's good choice in this retreat? Only time and market reflexes can tell. Stay tuned for more news about the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 +, which, given the recent past, promise to be many.
