Samsung Galaxy S5 rumors: fingerprint scanner to be integrated in Home button

Galaxy S5 concept

SamMobile was able to collect information about the fingerprint scanner, including how it works.

Instead of putting his finger on the reader to access the menu of the smartphone, you would have to “swipe the entire pad of your finger, from base to tip, across the home key to register your fingerprint.”

The report contradicts rumors about the implementation of a biometric reader directly into the screen.

It will be possible to record 8 different fingerprints for allowing the use of shortcuts for different apps or tasks, with one of them necessarily used to unlock the smartphone.

The site also notes that the real-time fingerprint will be displayed on the screen as you swipe it.

The Samsung Galaxy S5 could be announced as early as next Monday during the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.
