The Galaxy S10 Will Not Be Samsung's First Smartphone With In-Display Fingerprint Sensor, According To A New Leak

A Chinese leaker claims that Samsung is working on its first smartphone with an in-display fingerprint sensor, but it is not the Galaxy S10.

The Korean giant Samsung just launched the Galaxy A8s earlier this month as the first smartphone to feature an in-display selfie camera technology or also known as Infinity "O" display. While Samsung added a new way to accommodate the selfie camera, it still missed out another major tech, the on-screen fingerprint scanner. Most of the previous reports speculated that the upcoming Samsung flagship, the Galaxy S10, will be the first Samsung’s smartphone to have the technology.

However, a fresh leak suggests otherwise, claiming that the Galaxy A10, not the Galaxy S10, will be the first smartphone of Samsung to feature the on-screen fingerprint scanner. According to a leak from China, a new upper mid-range smartphone on the Galaxy A-series, dubbed Galaxy A10, are on the making and will have an on-screen fingerprint scanner.

Sadly, that is the only information revealed by the Chinese leaker’s tweet. The upcoming Galaxy A10 is already tipped to be a higher-end smartphone on the Galaxy A series. The same Chinese leaker was the first to claim that Samsung is working on a higher-end Galaxy A phone powered by the Snapdragon 845 SoC which is in line with this new information.

And if that is true, the upcoming Galaxy A10 would be an ideal phone with both flagship SoC of Qualcomm and the advanced on-screen fingerprint scanner. In comparison, the recently released Galaxy A8s is only packed with a Snapdragon 710 SoC.

DJ Koh, the CEO of Samsung's mobile division, had earlier said that the company would add premium features to its smartphones on the mid-range and budget segments. That might be due to Samsung wanting to compete with the likes of Xiaomi, OnePlus and Huawei with a mid-range smartphone being packed with a powerful SoC and an on-screen fingerprint scanner.
