In March, an anonymous source said that Samsung chose to place the fingerprint sensor on the back of the Galaxy S8 "at the last minute". However, she works in various retail stores in the Puget Sound region and experienced dropped calls numerous times in stores where her earlier Cricket Wireless and HTC 10 setup worked just fine.

According to Gizchina, Vivo will be the first smartphone company to launch a phone with an optical fingerprint sensor mounted below the display. The Korean giant recently announced that starting this week, Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus owners in the USA can sign up to test the preview version of its Bixby voice assistant.

Samsung Note 8 will be the first handset of Samsung which will support a Dual rear camera that is vertically aligned, similar to Apple's new upcoming iPhone 8. For now, samsung has not announced such an event, nor does it officially speak about the new Note device.

If you've seen the Galaxy S8, well, the Galaxy Note 8 will just be a stretched S8. He also adds that Apple is facing the same issue.

Lastly, the Galaxy Note 8 is expected to make its official debut at IFA 2017, which kicks off on September 1 in Berlin.

The next big thing when it comes to biometric security on mobile is the onscreen fingerprint sensor.

And Samsung will also improve the resolution of the Galaxy Note 8, with the curved Super AMOLED display capable of displaying 2,960 x 1,440 pixels, with an 18.5:9 aspect ratio. In those exact same locations where the iPhone 7 was dropping calls, the Galaxy S8 worked without any calls dropping out.

Bixby was released in early June as a complete revamp of the S Voice, which was Samsung's first attempt at a voice-guided personal assistant, first introduced with the Galaxy S III.

It seems likely that Samsung will include 6GB of RAM memory in the Galaxy Note 8 in order to ensure that the phablet is slick in performance. As you can see, there's still no confirmation in regards to the release date of the phone and as such, brace yourself for anything.
