Dashlane adds Samsung Fingerprint Scanner to its app

Biometrics may not be applicable yet for all smartphones or tablets, but many are saying that all future devices will probably have it one way or another. Password manager Dashlane is one of the first among its kind to integrate fingerprint authentication to their app, and they have now announced that they are adding the Samsung Fingerprint Scanner to their Android app, making it easier for users to access their passwords and personal information while still keeping everything secure (or so we hope so).

Samsung reportedly working on bringing 11K display to mobile devices

If your head and your eyes are still adjusting to the idea of 4k display on your mobile devices, then in a few years, you will probably have to wrap your head around something even bigger (although not necessarily better).
