The Galaxy S10's in-display fingerprint scanner won't work with screen protectors
In order to ensure early availability, Armadillotek has been hard at work preparing its Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10+ cases. But through its own testing, which has involved “real” Galaxy S10 phones, the case maker has determined that the new in-display fingerprint scanner doesn’t work well with screen protectors.
Because of this development, the company’s trademark Vanguard case won’t include a built-in screen protector as has been the case in the past.
For most people, the lack of screen protector compatibility is unlikely to be a deal-breaker, but for some who prefer to protect their phones entirely, the news may come as a bit of a disappointment.
Despite the bad news, consumers interested in the cheaper Galaxy S10E can rest assured that screen protectors won’t affect day-to-day use. After all, unlike its premium siblings, this model features a side-mounted fingerprint sensor.
