Samsung Galaxy S10 to skip the iris scanner

This gives Samsung plenty of time to build enough sensors for the Galaxy S10, although we do not yet have confirmation of what the camera setup will be. The iris scanner may also have been removed to realize Samsung's vision of a notch-less full-screen smartphone. These include under-the-screen fingerprint scanners, as well as under-the-screen cameras and face sensors for FaceID security systems.

Iris recognition is a technology for identifying user irises using an infrared camera and used to unlock the smartphone.


An in-display fingerprint feature will be added to the lager two S10 models, while the third model, the smaller one, is likely to have fingerprint sensor on the back. One of the premium S10 models is speculated to carry S10+ moniker. Bloomberg also said that Samsung has been working closely with Google on developing an Android version for foldable handsets, which is great news.

Samsung spends a ton of money on R&D, and this tweet shows how ahead they usually are of the competition.


While Samsung is expecting price declines for NAND memory chips, it's also expecting an increase in demand from the growing cloud market and bigger mobile storage offerings.

Another tweet confirms that this ultrasonic tech will be exclusive to Samsung devices, this means rest of the devices coming in 2019 with an in-display fingerprint sensor will have to stick with the inferior optical ones. Perhaps soon he will tell us more about folding smartphone LG.


Reliable leaker Ice Universe tweeted some rumors about the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S10. Priced at 3,499 yuan ($502.1), the Samsung Galaxy A9s, which is fitted with a super AMOLED of 6.3-inches, is the world's first smartphone to feature four rear-mounted cameras. The new Nubia X isn't a phone you'll ever see on the streets in the United States, but I'm sort of obsessed with it. Why?
