Samsung Galaxy S10 to skip on Iris sensor for an in-display ultrasonic fingerprint sensor

Samsung Galaxy S10

Samsung is known to be working on their 10th-anniversary flagship; the Galaxy S10 line-up. The company is also rumored to be going full-on with the device by including features like in-display ultrasonic fingerprint sensor, triple rear cameras and more. In the latest development, we hear that the company said to have canceled the iris sensor as an ultrasonic fingerprint is enough to replace it.

Compared to the optical fingerprint sensors, the S10 ultrasonic fingerprint sensor is faster and has a larger recognition area, and 30% of the screens may be recognized. This accounts for something to stay excited about what’s coming from Samsung. Furthermore, 2019 is likely to see demand for S10’s ultrasound and new screen technology. This technology will remain Samsung’s exclusive.

The company is working on three Galaxy S10 variants; 5.8-inch, 6.1-inch and 6.4-inch models with triple rear cameras, in-display fingerprint scanner. The rear lens will include the same 12-megapixel wide-angle lens and 12-megapixel telephoto lens as the Galaxy S9+, plus an all-new 16-megapixel 120º ultra-wide-angle lens. All these models are likely to launch at the MWC 2019 event in February.  Reports also suggest that Galaxy S10 line-up will have a cheaper variant that will better compete with the rumored 6.1-inch iPhone.
