Owners of the Galaxy S 5 will know that even though the device has a finger print scanner it’s accuracy is somewhat lacking. However regardless of that fact, Samsung is pushing forward with the technology as can be seen by the newly announced Tab S series. New rumors are surfacing regarding the Galaxy Note 4 and its fingerprint scanner. While it’s expected to come with one, it looks like Samsung will throw on an area-type fingerprint sensor — much like Apple’s Touch ID scanner — at least according to an anonymous “industry watcher,” cited by Korean media.
What lends weight to the rumor is the fact that Synaptics plans to unveil its first area-type fingerprint scanner during the second half of 2014, and as Samsung is the company’s only client, it would make sense. Of course we’ll have a few more months to wait until the company announces the device at IFA in September.
