New Galaxy Note 8 Leaks Confirm Samsung's Achilles Heel

26/07/2017 09:36:48

With the Galaxy Note 8 now expected to launch at Samsung’s event on August 23rd, I’m expecting the South Korean’s marketing department to lean heavily on the advanced and cutting edge technology that will be found in this year’s phablet. Which makes the decision to downgrade one part of the package not only a disappointment, but a potential commercial achilles heel.

The flood of leaks (including some leaks that originate from Samsung itself) have allowed the industry to come to a conclusion about the design of the device,. While the decreased size of the bezels will present an impressive front, the dual camera system that will give Samsung a chance to leapfrog the competition in terms of image quality and the more angular edges of the curved screen address complaints about the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus design, one feature has not made the cut.

Samsung has been working on a fingerprint sensor that would sit under the glass. That would keep the sensor in the same place as previous Note phablets and it would give Samsung something to heavily promote by being the first to bring this technology to the smartphone market. Unfortunately as the Note 8 launch date sneaked up, reports came through that the sensor was not as invisible as hoped and it was not going to be in the final design.

That view has been confirmed by case manufacturers and the renders of their cases with the Note 8 in situ. The cutout at the rear is large enough to accommodate the dual cameras, the flash, and the fingerprint sensor The Note 8 will be following the disappointing design cue of the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus by switching the primary biometric recognition duties to the rear of the machine.
