Why was the Fingerprint Scanner moved


The Samsung Galaxy S8 | S8+ is the first of our galaxy Phones to have the fingerprint scanner located on the  rear of the device. This was done for a few reason…

In addition to creating room for the dual edge Infinity Display1, as you pick up your Galaxy S8 or S8+, your finger goes naturally to the fingerprint sensor on the back and it's unlocked in one seamless move. You don't even have to wake up the phone first. It’s also managed to free up space for the battery and a host of other features within the Galaxy S8 | S8+.
