Rumor: Samsung testing a Galaxy S10 with a rear fingerprint scanner. Does that mean no in-display scanner?
The latest word on the street is that Samsung has been testing a Galaxy S10 device with a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner, just like the ones on the S9 and S8 before it. This might, of course, come as a disappointment as the tech-loving community is eagerly expecting in-display fingerprint scanners, mounted on the front, under the glass, to be one of the S10's eatures. After all, Chinese manufacturers have been building such phones for a while now and we are all eagerly waiting for the tech to hit the mainstream.
@UniverseIce There are new sources that Samsung testing a S10 device with rear fingerprint scanner. Samsung wants to commit suicide?— Smartphone Tips (@SmartphoneTips2) September 11, 2018
According to speculations, the two higher-priced ones will have an in-glass fingerprint scanner on the front, while the 3rd one is still a mystery since we're hearing conflicting information about it every other week. If this latest rumor that we are reporting on now is true at all, it's probably regarding the "cheapest" Galaxy S10, which will have a more orthodox design and some corners cut in order to sell for less. And by "less" we still mean "around $650-$700", just to be clear. Of course, we will be keeping an ear to the ground for any additional information!
