Report: Samsung Galaxy S 5 to have fingerprint sensor, 32 bit chipset
This entry was posted on Sunday, January 26, 2014.
Samsung may be on the verge of launching a Samsung Galaxy S 5, and the next Samsung flagship may just have a fingerprint sensor and a 32 bit system on chip being the key new features, among others. Read on to know more below the break.
There have been attempts at integrating biometric security measures in to phones for quite some time now, with the Face Unlock feature first seen in Android Ice Cream Sandwich (v 4.0) being the most prominent of its time. However, that (and any other such features) have been left behind by Apple’s Touch ID fingerprint sensor, one that it introduced in the iPhone 5S – a biometric system that actually works reliably and conveniently. As a result, other companies are invariably trying to integrate something like that into their next generation of smartphones, and as always, Samsung may just be the first off the blocks, by implementing it in the Samsung Galaxy S 5 flagship smartphone, going by what a KGI analyst named Ming Chi Kuo had to say in a research note.
The S 5 is also being expected to have a 5.2 inch display, with the top end variant of the S 5 having an incredible pixel density of 565 pixels per inch. Samsung’s own 20 nm Exynos 5430 processor will power the phone and there will be 3GB of LPDDR3 RAM to help with memory intensive processes as well.
