LG Nexus 5 (2015), LG G5 said to come with LG's new fingerprint recognition technology
Quoting the usual unnamed industry sources, a recent report from the Korea Herald argues that LG plans to equip its future flagship smartphones with fingerprint readers, after first experimenting with the technology on the 2015 refresh of the Nexus 5. What this means is that the rumored LG G Pro, as well as next year's LG G5 (likely to be called this way if LG sticks to its traditional naming scheme), will come with fingerprint sensors as well.
As one could anticipate, LG is said to equip fingerprint sensors on in its future handsets in an attempt to catch up with the leading smartphone manufacturers in the mobile payment game. Apple has Apple Pay, and Samsung will soon roll out the highly-anticipated Samsung Pay, but LG apparently plans to stick with Google's upcoming Android Pay, a mobile payment platform that will be available to all Android M smartphones.
From the looks of it, fingerprint readers and Android Pay will go hand-in-hand in the upcoming M version of Android. Earlier today, a new Huawei smartphone thought to be the upcoming Huawei Nexus phablet was spotted in a leaked video with a fingerprint reader mounted on the back.
