Korean Giant Samsung may unveil it’s own fingerprint sensing technology with the Galaxy Note 3 today. According to a leak on apk files tweeted by @evleaks, a “FingerprintService.apk” file is among the many files included in that list. Additionally, an alleged Samsung employee working at Samsung’s R&D center claimed that the fingerprint scanning technology has been “confirmed” to be arriving in the upcoming Galaxy Note 3.
According to reports, the fingerprint scanner will be placed on the back of the device and will be used to unlock the device. One of the feature is “Dual User Mode”, where the owner of the phone unlocks the device using the scanner, then it would give access to user’s sensitive files. However when someone else tries to unlock it, it will take them to the guest mode with limited access.
The Galaxy Note 3 will be announced later today on September 4th in Berlin.
