Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite: Fingerprint Sensor will be placed on the Side

Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite: The ever-dependable Ice Universe has again tweeted images of the 2019 editions of the Samsung Galaxy S10, this time, the S10 Lite variant. The images are quite clear and the discussion point is around the different physical buttons seen on the 2 sides of this phone and the rear panel with the dual camera setup confirms it is the Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite, the low priced 5.8 inch display variant of the Samsung Galaxy flagship smartphones to be released in February 2019.

Power Button to Act as Fingerprint Sensor?

The image shows the back panel and the side views of the phone. On the left side, you have a small button and a longer one than that. These can be concluded to be the Bixby button and the volume rocker. Now, on the other side is the power on/off button. But it does appear to be doubling as the fingerprint sensor as well since a close up of the image indicates that it has a separate round portion within the long button to do this job of fingerprint sensing. The round sensor you would get in the rear panel has been integrated into this side power button. This appears to be a very clever move by Samsung. This will mean that it has saved on costs as far as the S10 Lite is concerned, since the expensive 3D ultrasonic sensors will be featured only the higher end phones where pricing may not be a critical factor. The S10 Lite is a serious attempt to take on the Chinese brands like Huawei and Oppo gaining traction even in the developed markets, thanks to their lower pricing.

May Succeed Over Apple’s iPhone XR

Apple too has been eyeing this segment and had consciously released the iPhone XR variant last September, in a way keeping back its iPhone XE model. But the general consensus is that this Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite might score much better in the market than the iPhone XR especially if the South Korean major manages to get its pricing right.

Interesting developments.
