The Samsung Galaxy S10 series is rumoured to sport in-display fingerprint scanners. Recent developments indicate that the Galaxy A series might also feature in-display fingerprint scanners. The leak comes from IceUniverse who took to Weibo in order to reveal this information.
The Galaxy A series is Samsung phones with cosmetic appeal of a flagship and specs of a mid-range phone at a price more than a mid-range phone. The Galaxy A (2019) will apparently sport an in-display fingerprint scanner. The A series of 2018 came equipped with infinity displays like the flagships. So an in-display fingerprint scanner does not seem like a distant dream. But that might come with hefty price tag thanks to “semi-premium” status.
The Samsung Galaxy S10 series is supposed to arrive in three variants, with screen sizes as follows, 5.8-inch, 6.1-inch, and 6.4-inch. Out of the three, the 6.1-inch and 6.4-inch models will sport in-display fingerprint scanner while the 5.8-inch variant is rumoured to sport a side-mounted fingerprint scanner. The in-display fingerprint scanners will make use of Qualcomm’s Ultrasonic fingerprint identification tech. The company is apparently gearing up to launch 60 million smartphones with an in-display fingerprint scanner. The Samsung Galaxy X is another piece of tech that Samsung is expected to unveil very soon.
