HOT: Samsung prepares fingerprint protection


Last updated: May 24th, 2013 at 12:58 UTC+02:00

Apple isn’t the only OEM which is testing fingerprint protection. Today SamMobile received a tip mail regarding Samsung’s finger print tracking system. Inside the leaked firmware of the Galaxy S3 Samsung forgot to remove some tested application files. Our tipper ripped out the Galaxy S3 firmware and found this information within the SecSettings.apk. SecSettings\res\drawable-hdpi. Inside the map there was a lot of images. We think Samsung will bring future smartphones with finger print protection on the home button as one of the pictures shows off. View images below and let us know what you think!

Special thanks to the well known themer Kalagas.
