Artist draws renders of new Apple iPhone 5S home button

Artist draws renders of new Apple iPhone 5S home button
Now that a former biometrics executive says that the home button part leaked for the Apple iPhone 5S is indeed genuine, it is now time to consider exactly what the enhanced home button might look like. Pictures of the leaked packaging for the Apple iPhone 5S show a circle around the handset's home button which one would have to think has to do with the fingerprint scanner.

3D designer Martin Hajek has come up with some renders of what the new home button might look like on the Apple iPhone 5S. We have put together a slideshow of some of those images and they do seem to match what the leaked iPhone 5S box shows.

The fingerprint scanner is supposed to make unlocking the Apple iPhone 5S quicker and easier while also allowing users to identify themselves in order to make safe mobile payments using the handset. Speculation has the scanner being this year's show-stopping new feature when the phone is unveiled this coming Tuesday, September 10th. Keep your eyes here for coverage of the unveiling of the Apple iPhone 5S and Apple iPhone 5C.

Your pants are ready? Oh yea probably because you are going to s**t them over this pathetic, disappointment of a \"new\" Apple device.

You mean identical exterior but with interior hardware update? it's 'S' for 'Same'.

Makes you wonder what the 'S' in Galaxy S stands for.

Sweet, successful, student of apple. Not bashing either, but a lot of Sammy's success has come from unifying their brand, and marketing the practical usefulness of their devices. Things they've learned from apple, just look at how their ads are done. Sammy doesn't brag about specs like moto, and instead of selling units like moto, they sell em like apple.

You see, kid... I use Android. Daily, still, I like iOS but dislike Windows Phone. Do you see me pathetically flaming other platforms? That's what I thought. Grow up, kid ;)

Why would I limit myself to flaming just one? It's pretty funny that you can joke all you want about "S" standing for "Same" when it comes to the iPhone, but when it comes to the Galaxy S it's serious business.

Its an abbreviation for series. Equivalent would be calling it GV4, v meaning version.

At least we have now confirmed one of the features that will be on the Galaxy S5. Now we will be able to give our Galaxy the S-Finger?

It would be kinda nice if that ring was also a notification light or something.

Like it was on the HTC Touch Diamond and Touch Pro back in 2008?

Sure? At least hope it lights up when you put your finger on it. I want to feel like a secret agent every time I unlock my phone XD

I think it will possibly light up but whispers are saying that the home button will include NFC. We'll have to see on Tuesday!

That's what the Touch Diamond did! It used capacitance rather than fingerprint scanning, but it was still a really cool design touch. I wish HTC had incorporated it in later devices, now Apple will market the heck out of it and people will think it was their idea.

Why the hell do all you android fanboys get so paranoid about Apple getting credit for something? Damn, none of these companies are paying you anything.

Because it usually means Apple are going sue anyone who uses it after.

+1 I know that comment was meant for me, but I'm not an Android fanboy, and at any rate the HTC Touch Diamond wasn't an Android phone, so you didn't do me any wrong. For the record, I don't really care that people will think it's Apple's idea, but I still wish HTC kept using it.

Yes. That would be a travesty. I could see why you would lose sleep over this. EDIT: We don't even know if it will light up. It's quite possible not. So you are getting upset over something that probably does not even exist. To say Apple will sue others for it though is a tad dramatic. Possibly over the fingerprint scanning technology? Since they own

I mean, I guess if I were in your position I would be happy that someone agreed with me about how cool it is that the next iPhone has a neat glowing ring (heck, that rumored LED-ring might tip me over into getting an iPhone [EDIT: although probably not because I'll be getting a Retina iPad Mini, which will most likely incorporate the same thing]) but I guess that's just me. I suppose I deserved that sarcastic response though. +1 to you for putting me in my place!
