Samsung won't be the first company to announce an in-display fingerprint scanner on a smartphone, but it is expected to lead that charge in the UK, US and Europe. The Galaxy S10, due in February 2019, was expected to be the phone to pedal the change; sadly, we're now hearing that only the premium models will get the fancy new feature.
The latest rumours suggest Samsung will announce three Galaxy S10 models: the standard 5.8in S10, plus two larger 'Plus' models with 6.2- and 6.44in screens. Only the latter two will get an in-display fingerprint sensor, with the standard Galaxy S10 adopting a side-mounted alternative that still allows for a bezel-less Infinity Display.
It comes as disappointing news for the phone that was said to bring revolutionary changes, but there's still a lot to get excited about over the upcoming Samsung flagship. We're expecting to see triple rear cameras, Face ID-style 3D sensing, the aforementioned bezel-less display - potentially up to 4K in resolution - and a processor bump that boosts performance and adds 5G support.
