Samsung at this point is expected to do all it can to catch up with the competition. The Korean giant after having ignored all the major industry trend of 2018 is finally set to bring some of the trendy features to a number of its smartphones. Case in point; the Galaxy M series is set to hit the market adopting the water-drop notch, while the Galaxy S10 will be getting the on-screen fingerprint scanner.
With the S10 set to arrive in a couple of weeks, reports from Korea suggest the Under Display Fingerprint Scanner (UDFS) might not be limited to the Galaxy S10, as the Korean giant is reportedly working on extending the feature to the Galaxy A SERIES 2019.
As per a report in ETNews, the Korean giant could in the course of the year launch three Galaxy A-series phones with under-display fingerprint scanners. Dubbed the Galaxy A90, Galaxy A70, and the Galaxy A50, the three devices are expected to arrive later in the second quarter with optical in-display fingerprint sensors rather than the ultrasonic sensors. The Korean publication has it that the display sensors will be supplied by the Taiwanese company Aegis Technology.
In addition to the Galaxy A90, Galaxy A70, and the Galaxy A50, the source has it that Samsung has three other Galaxy A smartphones in the offing, but would rather settle for side-mounted and rear-mounted fingerprint scanners in addition to other features including multiple rear cameras with some having Time of Flight (ToF) 3D sensors.
