Samsung Galaxy S10 may use ultrasonic fingerprint sensor

Instead of having prototypes and concepts, however, LG may indeed have some ready for market devices on show at CES 2019. In China, there are reports that the company is set to unveil its flip phone.

First off, we need to mention that we have no way of knowing if this picture represents the final version of Galaxy S10. What this new UI will be called is not known at the moment; however, it has been tipped to us that the phone is now being tested with firmware version F900USQU0ARJ5 in the United States. The starting variant of OnePlus 6T, which carries 6GB RAM and 128 GB of storage under the hood, is price tagged with Rs. 37,999/- in India. The dual displays also make the battery drain faster. Rumour also has it that Samsung might ditch the 3.5mm headphone jack on its upcoming flagship. The report adds that there is a slim chance the new Galaxy F smartphone may in fact be a gaming smartphone that Samsung is rumoured to be developing. The risk of screen damage from drops would also be lower, given that the phone would not have a screen on the outside when folded.

According to earlier leaks, closed users will be available in 4 inches display, which is enough to perform basic functions without opening the smartphone, such as mail and messaging. It is expected to be unveiled in February next year. Samsung is going to test the market before entering into big volume production.

The Samsung Developer Conference takes place on November 7-8, 2018, in Moscone West, San Francisco.

Reportedly, the ultrasonic scanner was developed by Qualcomm years ago but has not been used by any company yet.

The prevailing trend in the smartphone industry is to achieve a high screen-to-body ratio by reducing as many components on the front as possible. Bloomberg recently reported, "Samsung Electronics is preparing to launch a premium smartphone that supports 5G for the first time in the industry". Company's spokesperson said the phone will be revealed towards the end of 2018, but won't go on sale until 2019. Similarly, Samsung Mobile's DJ Koh said in September that fans should expect a "very significant" redesign for the S10.
