Samsung’s struggling to get a hold of camera modules for the Galaxy S8

Samsung’s reportedly struggling to get a hold of front-facing camera modules for the recently-announced Galaxy S8 as its supplier Patron is struggling to boost the yield rate, reveals The Bell. It’s thought that the production yield remains at less than 70 percent and should be elevated to 80 percent for stable supply.

Power Logics, the supplier the firm is using for the Galaxy S8+, doesn’t appear to be having the same problem (in fact, it recently increased its yield rate to more than 90 percent). Why? Because the front-facing camera and iris scanner are combined into one module on the smaller Galaxy S8, but not on the larger variant.

That looks like an uncomfortable way to hold a phone. I hope that was by choice and not necessity.

So stupidly tall dude can’t hold it straight, apparently.

You will be highly disappointed.

In the uk the release date is 28th. That means 20th release. Not the 13th.

lol, I know, but it was too late for me to edit the comment! It works out better for me because the 13th is bank holiday weekend and I wouldn’t be in to receive it if it was that date.
20th is better but kinda sucks that we get nothing for pre ordering it.

I ain’t bothered about a free gift.

I have a gear s3 so a gear fit wouldn’t excite me.

My dad has the VR so I can use that any time.

I don’t really take photos so the 360 doesn’t excite me either

I think it’s unfair if other markets are, I do already have all the above too. But would be nice
