Keeping up with the current trends like it almost always has, Samsung is planning to update its future Galaxy S10 flagship, to keep up with the times.
The phone is said to come with an in-display fingerprint scanner under the hood, rather than the traditional position on the back, where it was perhaps becoming too difficult to reach, and decidedly not outstanding enough.
Better Facial Recognition
The company is also making sure it advances its facial unlocking capabilities through better sensors. The new sensors will instead scan the whole face in three-dimensions rather than just the iris. The system would be similar to what Apple does with Face ID, and a year on, it could give Samsung enough time to catch up.
While the rumors above come from the Korean publication The Bell, Electronic Times is also out there claiming further upheavals at the back of the phone, on the larger Plus variant.
The new update could come with three camera sensors there, with the regular variant with two. However, there is also a possibility of an even more barebones model featuring only a single camera, which would be interesting as even low-end phones these days so often come with two cameras.
Not in Note 9
However, all of these improvements are still likely going to evade the Galaxy Note 9, which will be unveiled in a couple of months. That’s probably in a bid to bring more similarity between the two flagship unveilings of the year, as evident with the step to have uniform denominations across the board a couple of years ago.
With the Galaxy S10 being the tenth-anniversary edition of Samsung’s top phone, the Korean company probably thinks it best to come out with some major features, though, ones we’ve already seen before.
