iPhone 6, Galaxy S5 design to feature edge to edge displays?

Rumor has it that the Apple iPhone 6 and Samsung Galaxy S5 may arrive on the mobile market with edge to edge displays. Reports suggest that the no bezel designs would support fingerprint scanning on the next generation handsets.

As CNET reports (Feb.11), despite bezel free iPhone 6 mock-ups, Apple's design plans for the next flagship release are not confirmed. According to sources of the Korean Herald, Apple may be testing fingerprint scanning on an edge to edge display prototype.

Potential rival smartphone, the Galaxy S5 may also feature an edge to edge display with built-in fingerprint scanning. Rumors suggest that Samsung could get rid of the home button, which is found on many Galaxy S series phones.

“The finger-scanning technology will be available on the bottom left and right sides, and not the entire display,” a source told the Korean Herald.

Contradicting this "bezel free" display rumor is a recent image leak from Sonny Dickson in what appears to be a rendering of the Galaxy S5 and its dimensions. If we’re to believe the photo, the upcoming S series device will feature a thin bezel and physical home button. Samsung is expected to reveal the Galaxy S5 later this month, so we won’t have to wait too long to find out what the deal is. As for the iPhone 6, it will be a while before we see the release of the iPhone 5S successor.
