LG G Pro 2, but it is expected to feature a 5.9-inch Quad HD (1440 x 2560 pixels) display, and may be announced at Mobile World Congress (MWC) next month.The report comes from Korea's ETNews, and makes it sound like the LG G3 won't be the only LG device with a fingerprint scanner. Apparently, LG is also planning to fit the upcoming LG G Pro 2 phablet with a fingerprint scanner as well. There isn't a lot of info around concerning the
The real question of course is how LG plans to implement the fingerprint scanner. We've seen fingerprint scanners on handsets before the iPhone, but most either didn't work all that well, or were placed in awkward spots on the device (like on the back of the device, similar to the buttons of the LG G2). Still, it seems that the technology has come along, so it may not be that difficult to implement.

- Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 801, Quad-core, 2500 MHz

Thank you Motorola Atrix for coming up with the idea of a fingerprint scanner in a smartphone. TIFTFY.

Swiping a finger on the sensor vs touching the sensor. Thanks Atrix for a crappy idea that never took off. Apple comes up with the touch sensor, and now all these rumors pop up about smartphones with touch sensors. Nothing wrong with riding coattails, I guess.

I could use this on my next Lumia.. LG isn't doing to bad nowadays... The only thing I would like to see from LG is a little more original design.. If they could find there own language, like Sony did, then it would be awesome....

If somebody copied someone with the fingerprint scanner, it was Apple. But to be honest nobody really copied anybody. Fingerprint scanners have been on phones for pretty long time already. It's like saying that Samsung is copying Apple when it uses a camera on it's phones.
