Samsung’s next–generation Galaxy S10 will feature an in–screen fingerprint scanner made by chipset giant Qualcomm, with sources claiming it will be more advanced than others already available.
The scanner will use ultrasonic tech, which is said to feature gesture recognition, the ability to detect a user’s heartbeat and even work underwater.
Samsung is thought to be prepping a more basic, optical in–screen scanner for its cheaper Galaxy A series. Last week it was revealed the Korean company is also working on a bringing the tech to its as–yet–unreleased Galaxy P.
Huawei’s forthcoming Mate 20 Pro is likely to utilise the same Qualcomm tech, meaning Samsung will have to come up with creative ways to show its offering is superior to that from the major Chinese mobile-maker.
The Galaxy S10 is not due to launch until February 2019, when Samsung will show it off at the annual Mobile World Congress event in Barcelona.
The phone will come just weeks after the folding Galaxy X is due to get its official unveiling at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.
