In-Display Fingerprint for Galaxy S10 and S10+, side-mounted for Galaxy S10 SE
Late last month, reports surfaced from the country South Korea claiming that Samsung has three variants of the Galaxy S10 in the works. The standard and the Plus variant, are what going to be expected, but it appears there is a third that will slide in below the standard S10, offering a blend of premium and midrange features, whose tentative name is the Galaxy S10 SE (Special Edition?).
According to a report, the two top variants in the Galaxy S10 lineup will ship with an in-display fingerprint scanner. You might remember that this was expected first on the Galaxy Note 8 and later on the Galaxy S9, but none came with it. At least we know it won’t be showing up on the Galaxy Note 9.
The Bell says that the entry-level smartphone that is Galaxy S10 SE, which has codename Beyond 0, which will have a side-mounted fingerprint scanner, which makes for an interesting choice. Even so, Samsung won’t be the first to use this kind of technology. Sony has been using it for a while and after moving to rear-mounted scanners, Motorola has recently taken over the mantle with the Moto Z3 Play. As is, Samsung will be joining the party in early 2019.
Samsung is working on a smartphone Galaxy S10 SE is the expected hike in prices of the Galaxy S10 and S10+. Moreover, the in-display fingerprint scanning module costs around $15 which is roughly Rs 1000, which is way costlier than the $2 which is roughly Rs 150 the standard scanner costs.
It’s worth noting that we have quite a long way to go before the Galaxy S10 family comes to life. With this in mind, don’t be surprised if more changes come in with respect to the design, specs, and features of the 10th-gen Galaxy S flagship smartphone.
