Galaxy S 5 To Have Bezel Free Screen With Embedded Finger Print Scanner

If you’re eagerly awaiting the release of the Samsung Galaxy S 5, then you’re among the many users and fans out there who can’t wait to feast their eyes on the latest Flagship device coming from the Korean manufacturer. There have been many speculations about what upcoming features and hardware specs that would be incorporated into this next device in the Galaxy S line, and there have been many discussions on what we as consumers would like to see Samsung implement. One of the more common rumors we have heard about is that the Galaxy S 5 would have a fingerprint scanner embedded into it, and as recent reports are suggesting, this may turn out to be true. Sources over at the Korean Herald are claiming that the Galaxy S 5 will come with a fingerprint scanner embedded into the display, so the scanner might not be implemented in the way people have been imagining. As the sources over at the Herald are suggesting, the finger print scanner will be embedded into the bottom right and bottom left hand corners of the display as activation points, as opposed to entire screen surface. In addition to the finger print scanner likely being used, the same sources are also suggesting that the screen on the Galaxy S 5 will be free of bezels. If this particular feature holds true then we suspect a ton of users to be very happy about it.

The lack of a bezel on the screen is something users have been hoping for over a great period of time. We have been getting closer and closer to having a smartphone that has no bezels at all, and some of the current models have extremely small bezels as it is. With the demand to have as much of the screen real estate as possible to be in a form, a phone with no bezel seems pretty exciting and we imagine it would look sleek and sexy. The Samsung Galaxy S line could also finally be liberated of the physical home button this time around, and might end up being quite a bit slimmer than the Galaxy S 4. This would benefit the overall design of the phone from an aesthetic standpoint, but how would the decrease in thickness affect the battery life if at all? Samsung is said to be unveiling the next Galaxy S phone at Mobile World Congress on the 24th, which is just over two weeks away. If it does indeed make an appearance at the show, do you think we’ll see some of the features and design specs we’ve been hearing about?
