Biometrics are the new craze
Reports from Korean site ETNews point to the forthcoming LG G3 and LG G2 Pro as the phones the Korean firm will equip with fingerprint-reading tech.
According to the report, the LG G2 was allegedly supposed to have a fingerprinting sensor but was scrapped due to time constraint and low yields.
But where to put it?
If LG is indeed thinking about placing a fingerprint reader on its next-gen phones, it's unclear where it would go.
The back of the LG G3 makes the most sense since its predecessor already has the power button and volume controls there - but it may be a little unwieldy and, ultimately, too crowded.
