Apple were the first to the market with a fingerprint scanner on a smartphone, with the iPhone 5S and its Touch ID technology. But now it looks like Samsung is going to follow through with its own security technology based on a fingerprint scanner.

Reuters is reporting that a company that specializes in fingerprint recognition technology, Sweden's Fingerprint Cards, is expecting "seven or eight of the world's biggest smartphone makers" to jump into the fingerprint recognition market. Fingerprint Cards' CEO, Johan Carlstrom, has said that Samsung will be launching a fingerprint scanner-capable smartphone in 2014, and that his company is hoping to become a supplier.

 

We did hear that Samsung stated it wasn't working on a 'Touch ID' type of technology for its devices, but we all knew it was an eventuality.
