Samsung Galaxy S10 in-display fingerprint scanner, ceramic back

 

 

Samsung is all-set to launch their latest flagship smartphones in the market. This time Samsung will be launching not two, but three models in the Samsung Galaxy S10 lineup. The features are still not confirmed, but one feature has stood out quite well in a lot of rumours and leaks – the in-display fingerprint sensor. There have been a lot of Galaxy S10 rumours and leaks, and now the code used in the Samsung Pay app has confirmed the development, possibly. Other details about Samsung’s upcoming flagship range have also been spotted which reveal that the Samsung Galaxy S10+ ceramic variant will come in only two colours – black and white. Also, the Galaxy S10 will get a 5G variant as well which will launch with 256GB in the base variant, and will reportedly go up until around 1TB native memory welded to 12GB of RAM.

The upcoming Samsung Galaxy S10 has been slated to host an ultrasonic in-display fingerprint sensor, based on a number of leaks and rumours floating around the internet. However, the Samsung Pay App’s code has now almost confirmed the feature. In a teardown of the Samsung Pay App’s internal code by XDA Developers, there are present a number of references towards making UI adjustments for what seems to be an in-display fingerprint sensor which was spotted alongside the “Beyond” codename which has been associated with the Galaxy S10 series range of smartphones.

The internal code on the Samsung Pay App suggests that the Pay app will identify whether the smartphone has an in-display fingerprint sensor or not, which means the layout of the payment flow window can be adjusted accordingly to make room for the area where the sensor is located. Also, another feature which is tipped to arrive is that the Galaxy S10 smartphones will get a gesture input which will allow users to touch the front camera physically to launch the camera app. This feature is already live on the Galaxy A8s and is reportedly tipped to arrive on the Galaxy S10 lineup too. Noted tipster Ice Universe had revealed in a video that the area above the camera sensor on the Infinity-O display will be a touch-sensitive and be tapped or swiped to launch the camera app. The feature will be mainly found on Samsung smartphones with the Infinity-O displays which include the Galaxy S10 as well.

Ice Universe also tweeted that the top-spec model of the Galaxy S10+ will get a ceramic back made using a special process and will be resistant to scratches and drops. The ceramic panel will possibly have a metallic lustre with the material adding to the weight of the device. A report from SamMobile states the Galaxy S10+ model will arrive in black and white shades and will reportedly get the model number SM-G975FC.
