Reports of the release date for the Samsung Galaxy S8 have been raging like wildfire for quite some time now with most sources saying it will be released in the first quarter of 2017. Aside from these rumors, initial reports of its specs and features said that it will have no home push button and it will go with a slimmer design with a curved glass on its edges.

Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus are all set to hit the market, but some late modifications to the models by the manufacturer are raising skepticism among the buyers.

According to reports, the Samsung Galaxy S8 will be coming with a dual camera at the back of the phone, but the fingerprint sensor is not present at the back of the phone. It is believed that the fingerprint sensor is directly integrated into the main display of the phone and hence absent at the back.

According to Forbes, the images of Samsung Galaxy S8 that has been leaked is not the same as the ones that Samsung will be shipping to the customers. This is because the image of Samsung Galaxy S8 has a single rear camera and a rear fingerprint sensor which was not supposed to be the case. Hence, it is clear that the previous rumors of Samsung Galaxy S8 planning to go with a dual camera and fingerprint sensor which is integrated were completely sealed until this late production problems.

One interesting point here is that it may provide us with a deeper understanding of what Samsung has planned for Galaxy Note of 2017. The unstable batteries of Samsung Galaxy Note 7 had damaged the reputation of Samsung, now it simply needs a massive win this year to improve its reputation which could come in the form of putting both a dual camera and integrated fingerprint sensor into the latest Galaxy S8 which would also be creating new differentiators between the ranges of Galaxy, reported Digital Trends.

Finally, it means that the buyers may want to think twice before finally purchasing Samsung Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S8 Plus if they are interested in the features where Apple is on the verge of completely redesigning the upcoming iPhone. Hence, Samsung might require some tricks in order to survive in the race!
