The possibility’s been around for several years, but it seems like a Galaxy-branded device should finally include next-generation technology for biometric authentication.
Samsung will ship its 2019 flagship with an in-display fingerprint scanner, according to ETNews. In a new report, the media outlet says Samsung figured out a method for the technology to make its global debut early next year.
While the report doesn’t go into too much detail, it gives an idea of how the South Korean company plans on tackling this achievement.
Based on Qualcomm’s Snapdragon Sense ID, the ‘ultrasonic fingerprint sensor’ for the Galaxy S10 will be fast and accurate. The chipmaker’s been developing its technology for a few years, and Samsung reportedly wants the third-generation version. Snapdragon Sense ID can pick up on touch through glass, metal, and moisture.
The Galaxy S10, however, won’t be the first mobile device in the world to have this groundbreaking feature. In Asia, various hardware manufacturers have implemented in-display fingerprint scanners. OnePlus also confirmed it for the OnePlus 6T this fall.
As for its launch date, Samsung should make an announcement in late February or sometime in March. It all depends on the foldable phone’s entrance to the market.
Samsung would like to push boundaries across the mobile industry in an effort to boost sales. Between the Galaxy S10’s in-display fingerprint scanner and the foldable phone’s futuristic design, maybe that’s likely. But Samsung needs to prove that these features are not only well-executed but also useful.
