Samsung has decided to not feature the iris scanner on the Galaxy S10 devices. which was first introduced in Galaxy Note 7 and proceeded to new flagship phones.
Instead, the company will include an in-display fingerprint sensor and a new security sensor module on the Galaxy S10, South Korean outlet The Bell reports.
Samsung is already developing parts for the Galaxy S10 lineup, but there's no sign of development about iris scanner module, says the report.
It may be because Samsung has found a superior authentication solution as ultrasonic in display fingerprint and better sensing front camera with 3D security authentication.
The source also mentioned a previous report about the Galaxy S10 smartphones being in the works and featuring similar display sizes as their predecessors, the Galaxy S10 is said to be 5.8 inches, while the Galaxy S10 Plus is said to be 6.3 inches, and the device will be codenamed “Beyond”.
The company said to have already started asking its suppliers to prepare component that would allow it to start mass-producing its Galaxy S10 in late 2018 — it is supposed to be unveiled at CES 2019, which is scheduled to take place in Las Vegas in early January – and release it by the end of February, a month following its official announcement.
