It is widely expected that Samsung Galaxy S10 will come with many great improvements, which will make this device truly stand out amongst its competitors. Now, thanks to information that was leaked by a very reliable Samsung-related specialist webpage SamMobile, we learned about a new feature that could take this highly anticipated smartphone to yet another level.
In-display fingerprint reader to be introduced with Galaxy S10
According to a leak posted by SamMobile, Samsung is set to release three various models of Galaxy S10, all of which will have in-display fingerprint readers. This innovative feature is expected to be introduced even on a new budget handset belonging to Samsung’s S family. However, the source of this leak states that there will be some differences in sensors on these three smartphones.
Two different types of sensors on Galaxy S10
Going by the leaked information, Samsung will deploy two types of sensors on the upcoming Galaxy S10. Its premium models, Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10 plus, are set to be equipped with ultrasonic display-based sensors. On the other hand, the budget version of Galaxy S10 will use a less-advanced optical sensor. When it comes to the first sensor type, it is a truly innovative piece of technology, which takes advantage of an ultrasonic pulse in order to create a complicated and extremely secure 3D map of the phone owner’s fingerprint. The optical sensors that will make their appearance on the entry-level model can only take photos.
The first phone to use an ultrasonic sensor
As we already mentioned, Samsung Galaxy S10 is going to introduce many cool innovations to the smartphone market, with some of them, such as an ultrasonic sensor, making their debuts in the world of mobile devices. The addition of optical in-display readers is also expected to be well-received, as this technology seems to work well on the Vivo Nex.
