Samsung to ditch Iris scanner with the Galaxy S10

Published

on

The Korean smartphone giant is gearing up to launch its anniversary edition flagship i.e. the Samsung Galaxy S10 by Feb, next year, and we already have a lot of leaks and rumors circulating around the phone. Now, we have yet another report which indicates that the Samsung Galaxy 10 will skip the Iris Scanner and will rely on In-display fingerprint instead.

The Iris scanner biometric authentication technology was first seen in the Galaxy Note 7 in 2016 (the phone however went flop due to safety issues with battery), then was used in subsequent S & Note series flagships including the S8, S9, Note 8 and the recently launched Note 9. From now, the company will no more be using this tech in its upcoming flagships.

The main reason behind this could be for increasing the screen-to-body ratio or grab more space for putting a proper 3D face unlock tech. If in case you are not aware, Samsung is working hard on its new OLED technologies, including an in-screen fingerprint scanner, a display hole for front camera and sound via display, for ditching the use of regular sensors those require a bezel to be housed in. This clearly hints that we might see something like “all screen phone” in the coming time from the company. And yes, we already saw the A8s teased to come with a full-screen display.

Moreover, another report suggests that the Galaxy S10 will be using an In-display fingerprint scanner as its primary method for unlocking the device. Interestingly, it will bear an ultrasonic fingerprint scanner instead of regular optical scanner and that too from Qualcomm unlike the ones from Synapse optics used by Vivo, Oppo or OnePlus. This also means that the in-display FP scanner on the S10 will be much more secure, reliable and faster than most of the current implementations available in the market.

As of now, the S10 is reported to come with up a triple camera setup paired with variable aperture tech. There are also rumors of up to 12GB of RAM. Further, Qualcomm and Samsung have recently announced a ‘strategic relationship’ agreement, which specifically mentions the “transition to 5G” which hints that the phone may also ship with in-built 5G connectivity option. Lastly, it is also safe to assume the phone being powered by the upcoming Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 SoC or Exynos equivalent, depending upon the region intended for.

Samsung has always done remarkable job when it comes to the design of its flagships. Given that the launch is quite far, let’s wait for the upcoming leaks and reports. Stay tuned.
