Now we’ve learned of one additional way in which the Galaxy S6 might differ from its predecessor, while at the same time becoming more similar to the iPhone: its fingerprint scanner.
The Galaxy S6 will do away with the swipe-style fingerprint reader and gain one more similar to Apple’s TouchID sensor, with touch-based recognition in the home button instead of a sensor that requires users to swipe a finger, according to SamMobile.
That also means a larger home button than previous Galaxy phones, altering the line’s design in a very noticeable way.
The site heard this from “highly credible sources,” and it has a pretty good track record on these things, so this could be legit.
Less certain is what processor the S6 will include, as rumors say it won’t be the Snapdragon 810.
