Samsung reportedly scrambling to produce enough Galaxy S5 fingerprint scanners

Samsung Galaxy S5 Fingerprint Scanners

Samsung’s Galaxy S5 is less than 6 weeks away from its release but Samsung is apparently still having problems producing enough fingerprint scanners to meet expected demand. PhoneArena draws our attention to a new report from Korean publication Daum claiming that Samsung has had so much trouble making fingerprint scanners that it’s hired third-party manufacturer Circletec to pitch in. PhoneArena notes that “Circletec is the largest manufacturer of mobile Optical Track Pads and produces a line of fingerprint scanners,” so the company certainly sounds like a good candidate for Samsung to use if it needs a lot of fingerprint scanners quickly. It goes without saying that not having enough fingerprint scanners would pose a wee bit of a problem for Samsung, especially since it plans on launching the Galaxy S5 in 150 countries on April 11th.
