    Fingerprint scanner is far from new: Motorola did that two years ago with their dual core Atrix.

    Best thing, it looks to be Samsung Galaxy accessories compatible.
    Good thinking on the finger scanner, though.

    Anybody tried the face recognition lock-screen?
    I am afraid do try it…
