Samsung To Drop Fingerprint Scanner On Future Phones

Fingerprint scanners have adopted so fast and now almost every new smartphone comes with it. At the same time, Samsung believes that other technologies will have the same fast adoption and that the company will drop the support for fingerprint scanners in the future in favor of those new technologies.

Those new technologies are facial and iris scanners, which are both present on the upcoming Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus models. Fingerprint scanners will probably be present for a few more years, but as facial recognition and iris scanners mature enough, they will probably replace fingerprint scanners.
