Fingerprint scanners usually live on the rear of the phone, or on the chin, but a few brands have moved the security feature to the metal chassis of their phones like Ulefone.
Ulefone are aiming to be one of the first smaller Chinese brands to release a truly bezel-less smartphone and we hope to get our hands on it at MWC in a few days.
To keep interest in their new phone, Ulefone have been staging the common method of ‘leaking’ a new feature every few days. These ‘leaks’ have shows the bezel-less display in action, confirmed partial hardware parameters and today reveal the location of the fingerprint scanner.

On the Ulefone Future the fingerprint scanner will be located on the right side of the metal frame below the physical power button and volume rocker. On their previous Ulefone Power, the fingerprint scanner was used for a few different features from taking photos and locking apps, and we assume these features will be carried over to the Future.
The teaser image that Ulefone have provided also mentions a Mediatek Helio P10 chipset, 4GB RAM, 32GB memory, and metal unibody design. Keep your eyes on news from MWC to see the Ulefone Power in the flesh.
