There are more and more details and information piling up regarding the Galaxy S10 and just recently there have been voices talking about how it will feature an in-display fingerprint sensor, which will make it the first mass-market smartphone to carry one.
Details and rumors
Samsung doesn’t seem to want to force money out of its users’ pockets. We say that because this advanced sensor won’t be restricted to the higher-end product, the Galaxy S10 Plus which is the most expensive device. Instead, the South Korean company will include this biometric feature in all three of its upcoming products, the standard Galaxy S10, the Galaxy S10 Plus phablet and the entry-level S10 Mini.
The Investor managed to come across some details, which are very specific. You will be able to scan your fingerprints on the screen of all three of these upcoming smartphones. The two more expensive Samsung devices will come with an ultrasonic fingerprint scanner embedded in the screen, while the budget-friendly option will feature an optical fingerprint sensor placed beneath the screen.
The recent patent publication filed by Samsung ties in with the ultrasonic feature of the scanner, which is a technique able of reading the user’s biometric data with more accuracy. Another thing we have noticed is how Samsung diverts its path from the one Apple seems to take. The American company is moving inches closer to FaceID as a way of measuring the user’s biometrics.
Samsung, on the other hand, continues to develop the ease of use of the fingerprint sensor. In fact, there aren’t many differences between the two companies’ choices so we don’t think that potential buyers will be swept in one direction or the other just by judging these sensors. However, it is always nice to see companies struggling to innovate.
