Galaxy S10 Is Codenamed ‘Beyond’ – Could Offer Significant Features Compared to Galaxy S9 & Galaxy S9 Plus
The next-gen Samsung Galaxy S10 has reportedly been codenamed ‘Beyond’. To freshen up your memory, the name ‘Star’ was used for the predecessor Galaxy S9, while the codename ‘Dream’ was applied for the Galaxy S8 lineup. We have also received word that the Galaxy S10 is going to be available in two variants; just like its predecessors.
Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10 Plus to Offer in-Screen Fingerprint Reader Tech – 3D Camera for Advanced Facial Recognition Also Reported to Be a Part of the Feature Set
The same report from The Bell has also alleged that Samsung has informed suppliers that the Galaxy S10 flagships will have an in-screen fingerprint scanner as well. The in-display fingerprint reader has been jointly made by Synaptics, Ezestek, and Qualcomm. However, the South Korean giant still has to pick a supplier who will supply a big enough fingerprint sensor to fit beneath the display of the upcoming handsets.
In-display scanners have been tricky and have so far only been seen on Huawei and Vivo phones, and that too in limited numbers. Samsung could opt for multiple suppliers to reduce the risk of manufacturing problems due to yield rate drops.
Even though Galaxy S10 will not be the first phone to ship with such a technology, it is likely to be a leader in this category initially and expected to break sales records. Even though it was expected that Samsung will radically change the design of the Galaxy S10 flagships, it doesn’t seem likely and the phones are expected to look similar to the Galaxy S9 flagships.
The upcoming Galaxy S10 family may even come with a 3D camera; however, it will most probably not be housed inside a notch. However, Samsung is still mulling over this decision and might not introduce the 3D camera after all as it will increase the cost of manufacturing the Galaxy S10, and thereby increase its price by as much as $50. These devices are also going to be the first to feature a 5G modem.
