    Samsung files patent for front and rear-mounted fingerprint scanners and other sensors
    A new patent application shows that Samsung is trying to patent the idea of placing a "sensor" on the front of back of a smartphone. The application indicates that "the function of module #60 may be a sensor module for detecting or receiving a signal from outside. Examples of the sensor module may include a camera module, a fingerprint sensor, a proximity sensor, and an infrared sensor."

    We're not sure if Samsung got the memo, but smartphone manufacturers have been placing camera modules, fingerprint sensors, proximity sensors and infrared sensors on the front of smartphones for nearly a decade now.
