After witnessing much hype for the notch feature, smartphones might be embracing another trend–the in-display fingerprint sensor.
Following the Vivo X21, said to be the world’s first smartphone to have in-display fingerprint sensor, Korea’s Samsung is reportedly adopting the new innovation.
Korean media The Bell unveiled some key points while the industry is waiting for Samsung’s next flagships, Galaxy S10 and S10 Plus. The company is expected to ditch the iris scanner and save a ton of money to invest in a 3D facial recognition technology. It also unveiled the name of its potential technology partner, the Israeli firm Mantis Vision.
For an alternative, Samsung might opt to equip the devices with in-display fingerprint reader for security feature. Another thing it revealed was Samsung might look at upgrading this feature, allowing end-users to check blood pressure and heart rate.
The smartphone brand is expected to release the S10 and S10 Plus in the market by the first quarter of 2019.
