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,
The Galaxy Note 4 will pack the same fingerprint sensor technology as the Galaxy S5 and the Galaxy Alpha, Synaptics’ Natural ID sensor, which will offer users the same kind of features available on the Galaxy S5 and the Galaxy Alpha, but also brand new ones.
In addition to Screen Lock, Private Mode, Samsung Account Verification and PayPal payments, Samsung will launch a Fingerprint Shortcuts feature and Web Sign-in mode.
Fingerprint Shortcuts will let users assign a different app to each registered fingerprint, so the app can be quickly launched from the lock screen, while Web Sign-in is supposed to allow users to easily log into various sites by associating log in information to their fingerprints.
Will the fingerprint scanner rise in popularity as the technology evolves? How important is this feature to you?
