Samsung may ditch the iris scanner on the Galaxy S10

Samsung may ditch the iris scanner on the Galaxy S10

The Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+.

Samsung may be ditching the iris scanner on the Galaxy S10. 

According to Korean publication The Bell, Samsung will be equipping the Galaxy S10 with an in-display fingerprint reader which will be a first for the company's smartphone lineup. Reiterating an earlier report, The Bell added that Samsung is also working with Israeli firm Mantis Vision on a 3D face-scanning module similar to Face ID on the iPhone X. 

Samsung had previously attempted to bring in-display fingerprint sensors to its Galaxy flagship smartphones, but reportedly ran into technical issues and time constraints. Other Android phone makers such as Huawei and Vivo had rolled out smartphone models with in-display fingerprint sensors, and it would make sense for the leader of the pack to do so.
