According to a new report, Samsung is having trouble producing the fingerprint scanners needed for the Galaxy S5 smartphone in required quantities. This is odd as the company initially decided to not rely on a third party manufacturer and produce these modules themselves. But it seems like they will have to strike a deal with a third party supplier to produce these fingerprint scanners for the upcoming flagship. A company called Crucialtec is reportedly being hired for the production of these modules. The manufacturer is known for making trackpads and related computer components.
The Samsung Galaxy S5 has a lot of headlining features and the fingerprint scanner is one of them. With launch expected to commence in a month’s time, the company would face quite a lot of embarrassment if it’s not able to meet demand.
The Galaxy S5 packs a 5.1 inch 1080p display, a 16 megapixel camera, 2GB of RAM, Android 4.4 KitKat, a heart rate monitor, a Snapdragon 801 quad core SoC and a 2,800 mAh battery.
