The in-display fingerprint scanner showing up on a Samsung device has now been a rumor for years and although it isn't nearly as old as the famous foldable smartphone rumors, they share a similarity in the fact that they both seem to take Samsung forever to release. While the foldable smartphone has been confirmed by the President of Samsung Mobiles, the in-display fingerprint scanner has so far only been a thing of speculations. However, some reports from South Korea are claiming that it is not a rumor or an expected feature anymore, but a confirmed feature that the Galaxy S10 will sport. To top things off, reports also indicate that Qualcomm is going to be the company that will supply Samsung with this elusive piece of tech.


If the ultrasonic fingerprint scanner is indeed supplied by Qualcomm, it would lead to the question as to how the Exynos versions of the Galaxy S10 will support the tech ? Will Samsung release only future Qualcomm chip-powered versions of the Galaxy S10 ? Or will Samsung be making their own ultrasonic fingerprint scanners as well? We will let you know more on this as we find out ourselves.

The Galaxy Note 9 has finally been launched and while the memories are still fresh, it is already time to look forward to the Galaxy S10, because it might have a bunch of impressive features that the Galaxy Note 9 didn't. Make no mistake, the Note 9 is a very capable device, but it's nothing ground breaking in terms of design or functionality really. You can check out the full spec, price and feature list here. Having said that, could it be that some of the more impressive features, including the in-display fingerprint scanner would make their way onto the Galaxy S10? We certainly hope so, especially since it is predicted that most smartphones will have it in 2019.



It's a bit disappointing really that the huge 6.4-inch display of the Note 9 didn't have the Fingerprint on Display technology, aka FOD, given that both Huawei and Vivo have managed to incorporate it quite effectively in some of their high-end smartphones for months now. We are also expecting 3D cameras and 5G compatibility on the Galaxy S10, but it's still too early to tell for sure.
