Does Lumia 650 supports fingerprint?

Hi,
I am just curious to know whether L650 supports sensors at the back? There is some provision provided at the back panel (I believe) which will connect to two mystery terminals when back panel is attached to the phone. Help me.

Obviously not, it's a middle terminal. All phones of all brands use extra antennas on back covers, for combined Wifi/BT and GPS chipsets.

If I'm not mistaken, that square "thing" on back cover of L650 is a NFC chip.

UPDATE: I can confirm that after testing - without back cover NFC isn't working. GPS/WiFi don't seem to be affected.

NFC and Qi are typically stuck on the back cover and connected to the phone using pins. Sorry but no fingerprint for you!
