Forbes added that Samsung Galaxy S8 will feature one functionality found in the demise Galaxy Note 7, a fingerprint sensor embedded in the screen.

Samsung is reportedly launching the Galaxy S8 during the Mobile World Congress in February 2017. However, several reports claimed that the manufacturing of Synaptic's new optical-based fingerprint sensor will start in the second quarter of 2017, thus, leading to another conclusion that Samsung Galaxy S8 will not be launched during the MWC.
