Why is the fingerprint reader on the back? Won’t location cause smudging on the camera?

Last Update Date : Feb 19. 2018

Samsung moved the fingerprint reader on the back for the following three reasons:


 Feedback & Familiarity: Galaxy users are used to having a HRM sensor in the same position and we received positive feedback from customers regarding its position.  


Infinity Display : We have moved the fingerprint reader to the back to create the Galaxy S8’s bezel-less display.  


Battery: To optimize the design of the device and create room for the battery.
