A Samsung executive has already confirmed the tech won't debut on the Note 8, and a new CAD render from CEO of case manufacturer Slickwraps suggests the sensor may still sit on the back of the phone.
It’s likely the render above isn't a finalized representation of the phone, hence the strange grey color and lack of definition on the camera and fingerprint sensor, but it shows what the body will look like and confirms the fingerprint sensor will sit on the back of the phone.

The new render suggests it has moved further from the camera on the rear of the Note 8 to try and stop that issue.
We don’t know for certain if this is what the final design of the phone will look like, but it matches previous renders we’ve seen as well as coming from a source that will likely see early renders of the device.
