According to the official, this will increase the revenue of the suppliers and the module makers. Two of the major suppliers of camera modules for Samsung’s S8, and smartphone lens makers include Sekonix and Kolen, lens makers for the iris camera. Few part suppliers of Galaxy Note 7 will remain as the main supplier’s for S8 as well. To say, Partron and MCNEX supplied iris scanner sensors for the Note 7 and will likely remain the suppliers for the S8’s biometric sensor.
