However, a fingerprint scanner for the Samsung Galaxy S5?

Fingerprint scanners are hip, after Apple one of them crammed into the iPhone 5S. Meanwhile, there are more devices with the pinch, and whether the Samsung Galaxy S5 have one will seem logical. A new rumor adds fuel to this fire, despite earlier reports that Samsung secretly do not have such an interest in the fingertips of its users.


It is time to DigiTimes , a publication with an eye for the electronics industry, which claims that Samsung is indeed looking for the correct fingerprint scanner – namely in sufficient numbers to be built into a device like the Galaxy S5. Reportedly, the South Koreans found a suitable supplier in the Californian company Validity.

Now DigiTimes is not always the most reliable source of similar information – and in mind also the rumor buzzing about an iris scanner , which Samsug some time ago already filed a patent application for. Security is fine, but both types of body scanner seems a bit overkill.

Whatever the case may be: in a month or two, the unveiling of the Galaxy S5 expected. Until then we will be very few really know for sure about the device, though it seems likely that the device, at least one type of identification technology will feature about. Samsung is finally the company not to lazily watch as other manufacturers use similar features, without actually wanting to give. Their own spin on.
