New Delhi: Sammobile has confirmed that Samsung's latest smartphone in the galaxy series, the Galaxy S5, will come with a fingerprint sensor to unlock the smartphone.


The website said the fingerprint sensor works with a vertical swipe of the pad of the finger while keeping the finger flat and swiping at medium speed.

The sensor will instead be built into the smartphone's home button -- similar to Apple's iPhone 5S, it said.

According to Sammobile, besides fingerprint sensor to unlock the phone, the users will be able to register seven other fingerprints and assign them to various tasks or app shortcuts. The smartphone will also have other security methods like a PIN code.

Samsung is believed to be debuting its new smartphone at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona on February 24.
