LG reportedly decided on using a fingerprint scanner on its next LG G4 flagship. Until recently the company was against investing into such technology though it has been following the trend since its revival with the iPhone 5s.
Back in 2013 Apple had exclusive access to the best in-class sensors and that's the reason many companies, including LG, have decided to pass on the technology back then.
At the MWC just few days ago Samsung launched its new generation Galaxies - the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge - both with fingerprint sensors and innovative Samsung Pay tech and services. Then Qualcomm announced a new type of fingerprint readers relying on 3D scanning and thus topping the Apple's TouchID in speed and security level.
In the wake of the new events LG seems to be finally entering in the fingerprint/mobile payments race. As the insider sources from South Korea report, the LG is making a last-minute change into the LG G4, inserting a fingerprint scanner on its rear Power key.
LG G4 announcement should happen this spring, so we'll know more soon. Until then take everything with a healthy pinch of salt, as those alleged last minute changes are easily done on paper, but it's entirely different story if they can actually made it to the real product in time.
