According to a report published by SamMobile based on information from their sources, Samsung will be shipping the Galaxy S5 with a fingerprint sensor embedded in the device’s home button similar to the one on Apple’s iPhone 5s. In order to use the sensor, a user will have to swipe from the top of the home button to the bottom. The report mentions that the sensor would not function with moist or wet fingers and the user will be presented an error. The interesting aspect of Samsung’s implementation is that during the swipe, the S5 will show the fingerprint being scanned on the display in real-time.
