Fingerprint sensors have become a norm, many manufacturers have implemented the feature in their flagship devices.
Samsung also introduced it with the Samsung Galaxy S5, but it was a swipe-based button, meaning that you have to swipe your finger on the home button to use the sensor on the handset. It may not be as accurate as the iPhone 5S/6, but it seems that Samsung may introduced a touch-based fingerprint sensor in the upcoming Galaxy S6.
The report surfaced from SamMobile, citing their “highly credible” sources, that Samsung will implement a touch-based fingerprint sensor in its upcoming flagship device. The report further mentions that it will work in a similar fashion as the Huawei Ascend Mate 7 and the iPhone 5S/6/6 Plus.
Furthermore, the company has made the home button slightly bigger than the one found inside the Galaxy S5 and the Galaxy Note 4 for easy access, and improved fingerprint sensor functionality. The report continue to mention that Samsung may allow users to perform a variety of tasks with the fingerprint sensor, such as paying with PayPal, verifying Samsung account, web sign in and more, alongside the ability to unlock your device.
Samsung is also rumored to be working on a new design language, and a better software experience by making it less bloated, but it remains to be seen what the Korean company has in-store for its users. We’ll update you as soon as we get any other information, until then, take it with a grain of salt despite the accurate track record of the publication.
