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.

Samsung is gearing up for the launch of its flagship devices – the Samsung Galaxy S10 and the S10+. Surprisingly, we have got information regarding the existence of another model in the Galaxy S10 which is named the Galaxy S10E.

Popular tipster Evleaks has come up with renders which claim to be the final design of these upcoming flagship devices. The renders are with a protective case applied on them. Take a look at the tweet:

According to the renders, it is clear that the punch-hole camera design, also known as the Infinity-O display will be seen on all the three devices. The rear cameras are horizontally stacked on all the three devices, just like the ones that we have seen earlier on the Note9.

It appears like the Galaxy S10E will be the cheapest of the three devices judging by the placement of dual rear cameras instead of triple cameras. There will be triple rear cameras on the Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10+. If a closer look is taken, we can notice the presence of dual front cameras in the S10+ which were revealed by the handset’s public appearance a few days back.

An in-display fingerprint scanner and 3D facial scanning are expected to be equipped on these upcoming flagships.

A reverse charging technology named Powershare, similar to the Huawei Mate 20 Pro is rumoured to be present on both the devices.

The Redmi Note 7 was launched earlier this month with a 48MP and SD 660 chipset. The Note 7 Pro will also sport a 48MP camera but with a Sony’s IMX 586 sensor. Under the hood, it is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 chipset.

The SD 675 is placed between the SD 660 and SD 710 and will be slightly powerful than the SD 710. However, to keep the price in check, Qualcomm embedded it will a slower GPU, less capable ISP and 11nm cost effective manufacturing process. Yet to officially launched, the  handset will probably cost between Rs 14,500 – Rs 15,000 in the Indian market.

The Redmi Note 7 was available in 3/32GB, 4/64GB and 6/64GB configuration. The Pro version might go with the 6/128GB and 8/256GB configuration. It may be backed by the same 4,000 mAh battery with Qualcomm Quick Charge 4. It sports a  6.3-inch FHD+ LTPS display and a 13MP selfie camera.
