New Delhi: Samsung's much awaited Galaxy S5 handset is creating a lot of buzz in the tech press making everyone curious and confused about what the fifth generation Galaxy device from the Korean handset maker will carry. Well, if the latest leaks and reports are to go by, the company could come out with a radically redesigned and uber-powerful handset that will do almost everything it sets out to do perfectly, with grace, class and functionality. In a nutshell, it looks like to be a handset that will take smartphone technology to a new high and in turn set a benchmark for others to follow.

Latest rumours suggest the smartphone will come with a more viable fingerprint sensor for the device and not the eye-scanning feature. The Korea Herald in a report mentioned an unnamed industry source who said, "Among the different types of biometric sensors that Samsung is testing for its Galaxy S5, the tech giant will go for fingerprint authentication rather than unintuitive user experience of iris recognition."
