The network has new details about the upcoming flagship smartphone Samsung Galaxy S10, which has not yet been officially announced by the manufacturer. Information shared resource SamMobile with reference to Korean sources. According to the source, the fingerprint scanner integrated under the screen will become the only biometric method of user authentication on the Samsung Galaxy S10, and the model will lose the iris scanner. It is noted that the iris scanner will disappear in all three models of the Galaxy S10.
The younger Galaxy S10 will be equipped with an optical screen scanner, there is also the possibility of placing the scanner on the side face, like the Galaxy A7. Two older models will receive a Qualcomm ultrasound screen scanner. Samsung has positioned the iris scanner as one of the key features of its flagship smartphones since the infamous Galaxy Note 7 in 2016.
The refusal of the scanner may be caused by the desire of Samsung to realize a display without wide cuts, covering the entire front panel.
