The LG G3 could sport a fingerprint scanner on the back: Rumor

LG G2The LG G3 has already started making its way to the rumor mill, even though its predecessor, the G2 broke cover hardly a few months ago. A new rumor about this new LG flagship claims that the handset will sport a fingerprint scanner, joining the likes of Pantech and HTC, having introduced similar technology in its recent flagships. This rumor emerges from Korea and even though there’s no confirmation as of yet, it seems very likely given LG’s penchant for uniqueness in its devices.

However, we hope LG researches deep into the technology before bringing it out on a flagship, which is a lesson HTC learned pretty badly from the One Max. LG is reportedly testing this on its prototypes already, so we’re hopeful it will turn out well. It is being said that the fingerprint scanner technology being used by LG is the same as what we have seen on the One Max and it will require the users to swipe up or down to perform a function.

This report goes onto mention that the smartphone will be unveiled in February, during the MWC event so LG is really fast forwarding its rollout of flagships. The event will also see the launch of its rumored smartwatch and fitness accessory called the G Arch and G Health. The smartphone should in all likelihood feature a 2K resolution display, a home grown octa core processor codenamed Odin, a 16MP camera sensor and Android 4.4 KitKat.
