Samsung Galaxy Note 8 dummy reveals that an embedded fingerprint scanner is likely

The image of a Samsung Galaxy Note 8 dummy was spotted on Chinese micro-blogging site weibo. A video of this Galaxy Note 8 dummy also exists, showing it next to the obviously much smaller Samsung Galaxy S7 edge. Right off the bat, we can see that the new version of Samsung’s high-end phablet features a vertically placed dual-camera setup on back, with what looks like a dual LED flash underneath.

Also of great importance is the lack of a fingerprint scanner on the back or the front of the device. This means that Samsung has apparently been able to fix the problem that prevented the …

According to the presentation, the Moto X (2017) is equipped with a 5.5-inch display. The newly announced Snapdragon 660 chipset is under the hood carrying an octa-core CPU …

'Westworld' boss reveals huge moment you probably missed in the Season 1 finale

TwitterFacebook

Westworld won’t be back on our screens until 2018 — so it’s no surprise that the spoiler-averse showrunners, Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy, kept a lid on any details about Season 2 at the show’s PaleyFest panel on Saturday night.
