The company is now working on a foldable phone and reports suggest it could launch only next week. In China, there are reports that the company is set to unveil its flip phone. A lot is going on at Samsung and amidst all these a new report related to Galaxy S10 has come up.
There have been a few leaks of the Samsung Galaxy S10 but yet there is very little that we know about the phone. There were recent rumors that Samsung was planning to debut in-display fingerprint sensor with the Galaxy S10 but now it seems that the company has decided to go a notch-up with this technology.
According to the leakster Ice Universe, Samsung Galaxy S10 may pack an ultrasonic fingerprint scanner which could use up to 30 percent of the screen. It will replace the iris scanner that we’ve seen in previous Samsung phones. The technology is expected to be faster and more accurate than any other in-display scanner in the market.
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. Further, another report suggests that technology could be exclusive for Samsung for at least the first six months of 2019.
The Galaxy S10 will be the 2019 flagship phone from Samsung. The phone 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.
