Now, a new report from Sammy’s countryside suggests all three of the upcoming Galaxy S10 will use the in-display sensor, however, the technology used will make for the difference. While the two top-end variants will reportedly use e an ultrasonic display-based fingerprint sensor from Qualcomm, the entry-level model will get an optical fingerprint sensor similar to the one currently adopted by Xiaomi for its Mi 8 explorer edition and Vivo for a couple of its smartphones.
In addition, Samsung is said to be blessing a variant of the upcoming Galaxy S10 phones with a triple camera setup which is fast becoming a flagship standard.
Samsung hasn’t said it will be unveiling 3 variant of the Galaxy S10, nor has it confirmed it will use an in-display fingerprint sensor. That, however, isn’t likely to happen soon, at least not until sometime in early 2019, so we only rely heavily on hearsay at the moment.
