This fingerprint scanner is a part of the screen itself not like other smartphone either on the back or front of the device.

The in-screen fingerprint sensor has been made by Sensor Company Synaptics and they confirmed that this feature would not suck up much of the battery. Sine, there would not be home button breaking up your screen space, and no scrabbling your finger on the back of phone it going to be in high demand.
