Samsung will choose a different fingerprint scanner technology for its Galaxy S6 smartphone, says SamMobile. Instead of requiring users to swipe their fingerprint for recognition, the new scanner will simply need a press of the button. The touch-based sensor tech is found in smartphones like the iPhone 5S, 6, and 6 Plus as well as the Huawei Ascend Mate 7. Reportedly, Samsung’s new button will be slightly bigger than that found in the Galaxy S5 and Galaxy Note 4.

In terms of software application, SamMobile says things will remain largely the same for Samsung. Legacy features such as web sign-in, PayPal verification, and fingerprint unlocking will all be present in the forthcoming flagship.

  1. Apple will probably sue again, i think they think they invented the fingerprint scanner with rounded corners, even thou i have one of these on my 12 year old toshiba laptop and havent used it once. They will say samsung copied apple. 3.5 inch phones was the right size and apple laughed at the galaxy note, then 3 years later they copied, whos laughing now, as there 6 plus does the rounds years after other big phones. But apple dosent copy remember. nfc for payments another revoultionary idea! from apple as they say in the ads. I was taping to pay on android a long time ago!
