Supposedly leaked pictures of what’s claimed to be the next iPhone would appear to back up rumors that the soon-to-be-released handset will recognize its owner’s fingerprint, Mac Rumors reports.

The unconfirmed photos, which were posted by Chinese site C Technology, feature the exterior of some iPhone-like packaging, including what looks like a photo of the new device. If this is the new iPhone, it appears largely unchanged in appearance, except for the presence of a gray or metallic ring around the “home” button.

The apparent newly designed button would lend support to buzz that the new iPhone would include a sensor allowing it to recognize the fingerprint of its owner in order to reduce the need to enter passwords by hand.
