Samsung and Apple race and smartphone war is never ending. Whatever Apple do, Samsung follows and vice a versa. 

Now Samsung, in order to keep up with Apple, is expected to start implementing fingerprint sensors in their smartphones from next year, as reported by SamMobile quoting Reuters.

It may be added that Apple's September launch of the iPhone 5S was the first smartphone with a fingerprint identity touch sensor, provided by AuthenTec, part of Apple.

Following on from this, Sweden's Fingerprint hopes to sell its own touch sensors to other big mobile phone makers like Samsung, LG Electronics and Huawei.

Fingerprint is one of only a handful of global specialists in touch sensor technology. Rival AuthenTec was bought by Apple and Validity was bought by Synaptics in October.

In this regard, Fingerprint Cards CEO Johan Carlstrom has been quoted as saying that Samsung will be launching a smartphone with some form of fingerprint identification next year, and that the company is hoping to become one of the suppliers for providing some of the needed fingerprint sensors.
