iPhone 5S Biometric Fingerprint Scanner Images
It is rumored for a long time already that the iPhone 5S could carry a back button to home equipped with a biometric fingerprint scanner. We have seen a lot purported images of the iPhone 5S so far, but none of the images showed or suggested a biometric fingerprint scanner.
However, first a leak from a french website and now another leak from SonnyDickson claims to feature the home button flex cable part of the iPhone 5S, but there is still no authentication on the images to be of iPhone 5S rumoured fingerprint scanner.
Though the images suggests that the home button would do more than just bringing users back to the phone’s home screen.
As the website points out, the image of the home button assembly features an additional square-shaped component and two resistors which may be related to the fingerprint sensor present on the home button. The component carries a date code that reveals that it was probably manufactured in the 29th week of 2013, or mid-July.
This takes us back to the purported assembly images of the iPhone 5S, where we could see a simple home button. So it is difficult to believe at first but you never know with the kind of technology enhancements seen in this age.
Now when the event is less than a week away, we would rather wait and see to believe.
