Galaxy S10+ hands-on video points towards screen protector issues

With just seven days to go until Samsung’s highly-anticipated Unpacked event, the flagship Galaxy S10+ has just appeared in a new hands-on video courtesy of Mobile Fun.
Following a stream of leaked hands-on images and even official press renders, the video in question doesn’t reveal anything new about the premium smartphone’s design. However, it does confirm one rumored detail.
Around one month ago, a notable case maker determined through its own testing that the Samsung Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10+ wouldn’t be compatible with screen protectors. This was blamed on the ultrasonic in-display fingerprint scanner’s inability to work through extra layers on top of the display. And from the look of today’s video, it seems that, to some degree, this is indeed the case.
Despite this compatibility issue, it seems as though accessory makers have found a solution, albeit a rather odd-looking one. In addition to the usual sensor and camera cut-outs, the Galaxy S10 & S10+ screen protectors include huge holes that sit directly above the fingerprint sensor. This guarantees a working fingerprint scanner but does result in a rather ugly look.

- Camera 12 MP / 10 MP front
- Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 855, Octa-core, 2800 MHz

or it could be someone that doesn't like Samsung. Insulting Apple all of the time make you all look weak. Btw, when did Samsung offer you stock options ? You sure have no issues defending them when they don't care about you.

No big deal for me personally as there is zero chance I'm using a screen protector on any of my phones.

Maybe that actually is the pre-installed screen protector :)) I'm leaning towards the S10e anyway.

Don't use a front screen protector just use a flip case if you regularly drop your phone. I have never scratched a phone screen in 18 years even though I place in same pocket as all my coins.

Another garbage and fans gonna depend on not using a screen protector. Many will boast to say how beautiful their phones are but in reality they didn’t buy.
