Galaxy Note 8 starts to leak showing an embedded fingerprint scanner

It’s never too early for more leaks, and the Galaxy Note 8 is ready to start showing off features ahead of an announcement later this year. This time around there’s pretty good evidence that Samsung has finally figured out how to cram the fingerprint scanner underneath the screen, as the leaked demo doesn’t show a fingerprint scanner anywhere on the front or back of the device. It’s pretty unlikely that Samsung would remove that feature, so the only explanation is that it’s been hidden in plain sight.
