South Korean manufacturing giant, Samsung, has favoured the use of iris scanner in recent times. Right from the Galaxy Note 7, Samsung has always adopted the iris scanner as its biometric identification method besides fingerprints. On the Galaxy S9 series, the company integrated iris and face recognition features, hoping to increase the success rate and speed of unlocking the smartphone. However, current report from South Korea suggests that Samsung has not yet purchased any iris sensor samples for the new Galaxy S10 flagship smartphone. This has raised the speculation that the Galaxy S10 may abandon the iris recognition technology for an on-screen fingerprint sensor and 3D facial recognition.

According to recent reports, the Galaxy S10 is codenamed “Beyond” and while the S10 will have a 5.8 inches display, its counterpart, Galaxy S10 Plus will sport a 6.3 inches screen. In other words, the screen size of the Galaxy S10 and S9 is the same, but the S10 Plus will be 0.1 inches larger than the S9 Plus.
Samsung Galaxy S10 series is expected to be released at the beginning of 2019 and the company has at least six months to work out the modalities of this series thus anything can happen. The Samsung Galaxy S9 series was heavily criticized for its lack of innovation and close resemblance to the Galaxy S8 series. Samsung’s design plan for the S10 series is not entirely clear for now but it is expected that the company will do something spectacular especially after the criticisms it got for the S9 series.
