    The above is a concept render found on the web.

    Although it's probably no surprise, the latest intel seems to confirm that Samsung plans to include a fingerprint scanner on their Galaxy Note 4, just as they have on their Galaxy S5. On top of this physical feature, Sammy is supposedly going to include some additional software features as well. Here's a quote with a few of the details,

    Will the fingerprint scanner rise in popularity as the technology evolves? How important is this feature to you?

    Im beginning to feel like the note 4 is just going to be 4 times the bloat. You already going to have all the carrier bloatware + all the s features from the past few devices and now they are adding more.

    Don't need a fingerprint scanner, or waterproofing, or Knox, or a 42" display, or TouchWiz, or for that matter... a Samsung. : ) C'MON MOTO X+1 !!!

    All that stuff is neat and all that but how about a bare bones model with all those neat things on the Samsung application store so we can decide how secure we want our device? I work at a toy store, have no national secrets the Chinese are wanting to steal .

    My kids play on my phone all the time. If it could lock certain apps or launch a different user profile based on the fingerprint I would really like it. So when my 3 year old is trying to switch games from Angry Birds to Temple Run he doesn't remove my folders and shortcuts in the process. I currently require a password to open specific apps like the play store but this way I wouldn't have to do that. I understand this would take the resources of a PC similar to Windows User profiles but this beast has the specs of a home computer. I think it could handle it.

    What ever happened to the retina scanner? That would have been cool, and it was a rumor early on.

    I won't be downloading my fingertips anywhere. Renta scanner sounds cool to but who knows when these things will actually be needed in the future for important things like at the bank.
