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.

Published

Motorola launched the Moto Z3 flagship last year in August with an old 2017’s SD 835 chipset instead of the then latest SD 845. Due to this, reason the company is back soon with an upgrade. The Lenovo owned company is reportedly working on its successor- Moto Z4 which will house a Snapdragon 855 and now the press images has surfaced online revealing its design aspects.

The image reveals that the Moto Z4 will have sleek bezels with a waterdrop notch on top. At the back, it has the pogo pins confirming Moto Mod support. There is a single camera at the rear which is surprising for the smartphone in 2019. However, rumours point that the sensor is a 48MP one sourced from Sony.

There is no visible fingerprint sensor on the Moto Z4, which means it will likely sport a under display one. Other things that we can ascertain from the leaked image are the placement of power button and volume rocker on right and a 3.5 mm headphone jack at the bottom. The display mentions April 3 date on the lockscreen which might be its launch date.

Now, a similar looking phone that was referred to as the Moto Z4 Play was leaked in January but the source of the current leak says Motorola has no plans to launch a Play variant in the Z series in 2019. It means that either the render is fake or the project was scrapped. Other details about the Moto Z4 isn’t available right now but if Motorola plans to launch it on April 4, we can expect the teasers to arrive soon.

The Xiaomi Redmi Y2 featured a tall 5.99-inch HD+ display with a resolution of 1440 × 720 pixels and 18:9 aspect ratio powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor. We expect a chipset upgrade in this year’s version. The rumors state that it may come with Snapdragon 632 which powers the Redmi 7.

Google Pixel 4 XL Leaked. Will Feature Dual Rear Cameras & Punch-hole Display!

Published

It’s the time of the year when we slowly start getting leaks from multiple sources regarding the upcoming Pixel devices. The rumor mill has started churning out leaks of the most anticipated smartphone of the year, the Google Pixel 4 XL.

The last generation Pixel devices indeed got leaked multiple times that the brand itself made a teaser video regarding the leaks. While everyone was expecting a Pixel 3 Ultra which apparently didn’t happen, the design language of the Pixel 3 XL didn’t really attract the masses with its gigantic notch.

If the leaked images are to be believed, the Pixel 4 XL will be featuring the punch-hole display which quite resembles the Samsung Galaxy S10+. The bezels are comparatively thinner this time which improves the overall look and feel of the device. We hope the brand does not skip on the stereo speakers for minimizing the bezels.

On the rear, it appears like there will be dual horizontally stacked rear cameras which are quite surprising considering the history of the brand which managed to achieve portrait mode with a single lens. This second lens could also be a wide-angle lens. The LED flash is mounted to the right of the dual rear cameras.

There is no physical fingerprint scanner on the device. In fact, the handset will feature an in-display fingerprint sensor. The unknown factor is the nature of the scanner (optical or ultrasonic). It is also possible for the fingerprint sensor to be embedded into the power button.

As of now, further information regarding Pixel 4 is not known. There is no verified information if the leaked image is legitimate or not yet. If the device actually turns out to be like the one on the leaked image, we expect it to actually get positive feedback. More leaks will be unfolding in the upcoming days. Stay tuned for updates.
