While major brands like OnePlus and Huawei have launched their flagships like OnePlus 6t and Huawei Mate 20 Pro with an in-screen fingerprint sensor. Samsung is planning to come with Under-Screen Ultrasonic Fingerprint Scanner for Samsung’s Galaxy S10 family for better speed and reliability.
Samsung Galaxy S10 with Under-Screen Ultrasonic Fingerprint Scanner
According to Twitter tipster Ice Universe, the device will pack an Ultrasonic Fingerprint reader, which could utilize up to 30% of the display to read user digits. Beyond that, the Samsung-exclusive technology will be faster than any other in-display reader already available on other devices.
Compared to optical fingerprint sensors, the S10 ultrasonic fingerprint sensor is faster and has a larger recognition area, and 30% of the screens may be recognized.
It’s not yet known if this ultrasonic scanner will be used as the only form of biometric security or Samsung will include its iris scanner as well.
Further, another report suggests that technology could be exclusive for the Samsung for at least the first six months of 2019. While it is hard to make out what exactly this means, we are guessing the rumored pierced display is being hinted at.
Reportedly, the ultrasonic scanner was developed by Qualcomm years ago but has not been used by any company yet. Samsung Galaxy S10 could be the first phone to come with an ultrasonic fingerprint reader.
The Galaxy S10 could launch at MWC 2019. Apart from a triple camera system in the phone, it is also speculated that Samsung is working on a dedicated Neural Processing Unit for its Exynos 9820 which most probably will be powering the upcoming Galaxy S10. A dedicated NPU unit will allow faster advanced AI tasks along with faster voice-based actions.
