Biometric sensors are the hot new thing in the world of mobile technology (read, Smartphones and tablets). Ever since we first heard about the possibility of a fingerprint reader on-board the (then upcoming) iPhone 5S, we have been fantasizing about them all the time. As an obvious response, phone makers got to work preparing their own products equipped with this fancy (and slightly gimmicky too) new (not really) tech.
Up until now, we've heard of multiple phablets slated to arrive in the next one or two months, all with a fingerprint reader at the back. Of course, placing the sensor in the place of our usual home button is like an open invitation for a lawsuit from Cupertino, and so the sensor has found its home at the back of upcoming Android Smartphones.
One of these 'upcoming' devices is the Pantech Vega Note, scheduled to be officially announced on October 10th (i.e. tomorrow). Leaked images of the 5.9-inch phablet leaked earlier today confirm that the fingerprint reader is indeed present in the Vega Note (cheers). Other specifications include a 2.3 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 SoC, 2 GB of RAM, a 1080p panel, LTE-A support and Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean pre-installed.
