A Chinese analyst has reportedly predicted that Samsung Galaxy S5 may be launched with a fingerprint sensor.

KGI analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said that Samsung can sense pressure from the makers of iPhone 5S and the fingerprint-reading HTC One Max.

The analyst also took note of a Samsung's announcement that the company was looking at iris-scanning security technology earlier this month to substantiate his prediction, the Cnet reported. Kuo also predicted that Galaxy S5 models will use 32-bit hardware from Qualcomm or Exynos.
