We know that Apple and Samsung have been battling for supremacy in the world of mobile for awhile now. And, if you ask me, I think Samsung is really the only major handset maker which is competing successfully with Apple right now.
So, you know when Apple came out with the iPhone 5S and the thumbprint scanner, it was all but inevitable Samsung would want to one-up them.
And, yes, I’m fully aware that Apple didn’t invent thumb scanners, so no need to go there.
Well, according to AndroidSaS, the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S5 is going to come equipped with an eye-scanning sensor.
According to the rumors, Samsung has started working on the sensor that will be equipped on the Samsung Galaxy S5 to allow the users to protect their device more like never before.Unfortunately, there is no information on how this Eye-Scanning sensor will work but Samsung has decided to go one step ahead of other manufacturers as the HTC and Apple has recently introduced fingerprint sensors in their latest flagships but these fingerprint sensors are not working well as expected and many ways found to bypass this fingerprint lock.
Of course, AndroidSaS makes a point to point out this is simply a rumor. And, we know rumors sometimes end up being full of crap.
The question is, though…
