Samsung Galaxy S5 to Get Fingerprint Scanner, Not Iris Scanner?

Posted by · 8813 views · Translate
Samsung is reportedly poised to follow Apple's lead and include a fingerprint scanner in the Galaxy S5; rather than an iris scanner as previously rumored, reports the Korea Herald.

“Among the different types of biometric sensors that Samsung is testing for its Galaxy S5, the tech giant will go for fingerprint authentication rather than unintuitive user experience of iris recognition,” said an industry source who declined to be named.

“Who would want to put their handset up close to their eyes for authentication in places like movie theaters and bed, or even while they are driving?,” the source added.

Samsung is apparently working towards offering fingerprint sensors under the display panel so you could press your fingertip to the screen for scanning. Apple's implementation requires a user press their fingertip to the home button for scanning.

Another reason why the iris scanner will probably not be installed in the Galaxy S5 is the need for a third camera module which will make the device thicker and require a different design.

Samsung. I hate you more than anything. I. Have you a chance by getting an S4 instead of a 5S and it was the biggest mistake of my life. Samsung should just stop making phones and tablets and work on TVs

Ha ha, in order to develop iris scanner they need to wait Apple to develop it first, coz they are not good at innovating but very good at copying.
