Although Samsung Galaxy S10 and S10 Plus are still long to be released, but some leaks about the design and features are very interesting for us to know. As revealed by The Bell, one of the media in South Korea mentioned that Samsung will no longer load the iris scanner into the smartphone.
Most likely, this biometric security feature for the last time will only be loaded on the Galaxy Note9 which will be released in the second half of this year. As we know, the new Galaxy S10 and S10 Plus will be launched by Samsung at the beginning of next year.
A number of sources close to the electronics giant from South Korea is also justify it. Not without reason Samsung eventually had to throw the iris scanner from its premium Galaxy smartphone. Allegedly this feature is not the most efficient way to unlock the smartphone.
Arguably, Apple’s Face ID is much more accurate and faster. Meanwhile, not a few users who still love the fingerprint scanner. Even some people also argue that features face unlock slightly more comfortable than the iris scanner.
If the prediction is true, it also brings benefits to Samsung. At least they no longer spend the money to research the iris scanner is more optimal or they can divert the investment into 3D face recognition technology that is currently starting to be widely adopted.
Associated with 3D face recognition technology, Samsung is currently also reportedly intimate with one of Israel’s startup, namely Mantis Vision to develop the technology. So there is a possibility if the Galaxy S10 and S10 Plus will have a 3D face recognition feature.
No less interesting, Galaxy S10 and S10 Plus also mentioned will offer a fingerprint scanner on the screen as an alternative biometric security feature. For this, Samsung’s rumor works by itself to develop a more robust fingerprint scanner inside the screen.
There are also other possibilities, the embedded fingerprint scanner will double as a sensor for blood pressure and heart rate. Obviously this takes time to develop it and it feels like Samsung will find it difficult to implement it on time.
