The fingerprint sensor integrated under the display of the Samsung Galaxy S10 / S10+, according to the latest rumors emerged, should not work properly with the presence of screen protectors.
Samsung Galaxy S10, along with its Lite and Plus variants, is undoubtedly the most talked about smartphone of the moment and as we approach the 20 February, the date of Samsung Galaxy UNPACKED 2019 event, the rumors are multiplying. Just a few hours ago we saw the new flagships of the South Korean giant in new images and now we return to speak about its fingerprint sensor integrated under the display.
After using traditional fingerprint scanners for the last five years, Samsung is finally ready to turn the page on its flagship smartphones: Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10+ (but not the Lite version) should in fact boast ultrasonic fingerprint sensors integrated into the display. While this change was highly anticipated, on the other hand, according to some manufacturers of accessories, it may not be without side effects.
In order to ensure early availability, Armadillotek has been hard at work preparing its Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10+ cases. But through its own testing, which has involved “real” Galaxy S10 phones, the case maker has determined that the new in-display fingerprint scanner doesn’t work well with screen protectors.
Because of this development, the company’s trademark Vanguard case won’t include a built-in screen protector as has been the case in the past.
This news could be a small disappointment for potential buyers of Samsung Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10+. No problem, however, for the cheaper model “Galaxy S10 Lite”, which should have the fingerprint sensor integrated in the side power button and therefore no risk of incompatibility with screen protectors.
