A new in-depth report comes to the conclusion that the iPhone 5S will have a unique Fingerprint sensor that the Android front will not be able to copy for a while.

The iPhone 5S is very likely to include a fingerprint sensor. There have been a few attempts to offer fingerprint sensors in smartphones that failed in the last couple of years. They all failed as the fingerprint sensors turned out to not be reliable. A couple days ago a report described the issues with fingerprint sensors in great detail. Geppy Parziale concluded in the report that the iPhone fingerprint sensor would be basically a disaster and have a very short lifetime. Now Apple Insider countered that argument and makes the case that Apple has developed a fingerprint sensor that solved those issues that make them unreliable and short-lived.

The report draws a lot of its argumentation from past Apple innovations and the fairly big amount Apple paid for Authentec. Apple is not free from failure, just remember antenna gate. Apple is aiming though, to release new features that just simply work. 

I think it can still go both ways. At this point we have not seen anything of the fingerprint sensor hardware.
