After various phone companies have tried making it work, it looks like the technology of embedding the fingerprint scanner under the screen might come on the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 first.

According to a new leaked video, a new dummy shows an early concept for the Galaxy Note 8 design, and it doesn't have a fingerprint sensor on the front or on the rear of the phone. That may be because Samsung feels ready to place the scanner under the screen. Earlier rumors suggested that Samsung would be putting this tech under the screen of the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus, but couldn't get the tech in time.

This might also mean that Samsung might be gearing up to put more focus on unlocking your phone with the Iris scanner rather than using the more commonly used fingerprint method.

Other leaked specs for the phone suggest that it will pack the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset in the US, while the rest of the world will get the Exynos 8895 chipset, much like Samsung chose to do on the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus.

The Note 8 is expected to be announced around August or September this year, but all we know for certain is the phone will be released at some point in 2017.
