Some new designs have shown up, which feature an unidentified object on the top right side, that could be... shock: a fingerprint scanner. We've heard that the Galaxy S5 will indeed feature an iris scanner, and we've also heard the teases of a smartphone from Samsung with a fingerprint scanner - maybe we'll see the blending of both technologies, too.
