The Galaxy S6 Home Key May Be Taller For The Fingerprint Sensor?

T-Mobile provided us with the clearest see of the Galaxy S6 yesterday and one can just create out the hardware Home key. Samsung has to haged it, becautilize it houses the fingerprint sensor, but this time it looks taller than usual.

That gave rise to the speculation that it will not be a swipe sensor like the Galaxy S5 and Note 4, but instead will work with a stationary finger. We've already seen such an implementation from Meizu on the MX4 Pro, which also features a taller Home key.

Some makes have chosen to go the fingerprint sensor to the back instead, there's plenty of room for a tall sensor there. On the front, the drive for thinner bezels leave less room for tall buttons.

Samsung recently bought LoopPay, an Apple Pay competitor, so we expect the Samsung Galaxy S6 to be even more focused on fingerprint-protected payments.
