Samsung Galaxy S4 is barely out in the market and the tech circles are already abuzz with leaks and speculations linked to the much awaited Galaxy S5. With Apple planning to integrate the coveted features of a fingerprint scanner in its iPhone 5S, Samsung fans are expecting the addition of the same security features in the S5 and the Galaxy Note 3 too.

Speculations regarding these enhanced features are making their rounds for the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and the Galaxy S5 alike. Likely to be released at the end of the third quarter of 2013, the security features will beef up the levels of security in phablets, tablets and phones. This will make the in-app authentication and device lock screen features reach new dimensions of functionality and add further value to the flagship products from Samsung.

The signs popping up in the Samsung Galaxy S3’s OS are creating the grounds for the availability of fingerprint scanner technology in the forthcoming devices. According to iOS news forum iOSDoc, the reports published on Tuesday, May 28 reveal that Samsung and Apple are trying to implement this security feature in the Galaxy S4 and iPhone 5 very soon.
