“We will kill the fingerprint, it’s Obsolete”, Samsung Official Says



We all know that when it comes to innovation in smartphones, Samsung is a company that is always on the top of the list. The company has planned to make one of the biggest change in the design of S8 & S8 Plus by removing everything from the front including the hardware button and capacitive keys to make more space for the display. This is the reason S8 & S8 Plus are having huge 5.8 and 6.2-inch displays in a small body. Today, a new statement by one of the Samsung’s officials suggests what the company is planning to do with its next flagships after S8 and S8 Plus.

As per @mmddj_china on Twitter, a staff member of Samsung has said that the company has made plans to ditch the fingerprint because it is Obsolete. And it pretty much makes some sense as S8 and S8 Plus have Iris Scanner along with the Face Recognition for unlocking, so the fingerprint scanner won’t be used much. If you don’t know, it is being said that the Face Recognition of S8 and S8 Plus will help to unlock the devices in just 0.01 seconds which is even less than the blink of the eye. So, the fingerprint scanner makes no sense when we have such an ultra-fast unlocking technology along with Iris Scanner. What do you think? Is it time to say goodbye to fingerprint scanner? Do let us know what do you think in the comments section. Stay Tuned.

    Those scanners will do real well in the dark or when you’re not looking at the phone.
