The South Korean company, Samsung Electronics, is preparing to integrate fingerprint scanner on the screen for all the three variants of the Galaxy S10, according to an industry source.
“The two high-end Galaxy S models will come fitted with an ultrasonic in-screen fingerprint scanner while the other one will house an optical fingerprint sensor beneath the screen,” an official from the display industry told to the South Korean news outlet The Investor.
The ultrasonic fingerprint sensor will be exclusively supplied by the Qualcomm. In another report, Market research firm IHS Markit forecast shipments of smartphones featuring an on-screen fingerprint sensor will hit 100 million next year.
Samsung is planning to launch three variants of the Galaxy S10 next year, including a premium large-screen Galaxy S10+ whose project name is Beyond 2, a basic Galaxy S10 or Beyond 1 and a cheaper S10 version or Beyond 0.
In the past, multiple reports have indicated that Samsung is planning to launch its flagship Galaxy S smartphone early next year. One report indicates Samsung is planning to launch Galaxy S10 during MWC 2019 in February. It is also rumored to be preparing a foldable smartphone for CES launch in January next year.
