Galaxy S8 to feature rear fingerprint scanner

The soon to be released Samsung Galaxy S8 will feature a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner instead of a physical home button on the front of the device, according to a report from CNET Korea (via SamMobile).

Referring to Galaxy S8 schematics the site clams to have obtained, the report predicts the Galaxy S8’s fingerprint scanner will be placed to the right of the device’s rear-mounted camera, a prediction which corroborates previous rumours about the new smartphone not featuring a physical home button on the front of the device.

The report does, however, indicate that the Samsung Galaxy S8 will incorporate a physical button on the side of the device.
