There is still a few weeks left in the launch of Samsung Galaxy Note 9 but we are already hearing rumors about the next generation Samsung flagships. While this is not the first time we are telling you about the in-display fingerprint scanner in Samsung Galaxy S10, a recent report suggests that the company is going to include ultrasonic in-display fingerprint sensors on its high-end devices next year.

While the S10 won’t be the first phone to feature an in-display fingerprint sensor but it definitely would be first one to have an ultrasonic in-display fingerprint sensor. Ultrasonic fingerprint sensors use ultrasonic sound to produce a 3D image of the fingerprint. Basically, a transmitter sends out an ultrasonic pulse through the display and onto the finger, and the waves that bounce back are picked up by a sensor which can identify the unique details of the fingerprint. Sounds interesting, right?

Recently, the brands like Vivo, Oppo,Huawei and Xiaomi have launched phones that have in-display fingerprint sensors use optical sensors. DJ Koh, CEO Samsung Mobile said that if Samsung wanted to use the less precise, but cheaper to produce optical version, it could have released an embedded fingerprint reader two years ago.
According to the analyst, Ming-Chi Kuo who is known for his calls on Apple devices, the ultrasonic sensors will appear on the two high-end versions of the Galaxy S10, the most high-end version of the Galaxy A series and the Galaxy Note 10. In a statement he said that the S10 will come in three different sizes: 5.8 inches, 6.1 inches, and 6.4 inches. The 6.1-inch and 6.4-inch versions of the Galaxy S10 will be equipped with the ultrasonic fingerprint-in-display feature. The third model, with a 5.8-inch screen, will have a regular fingerprint scanner on the sideways of the phone just like how we have seen in Moto Z3 Play.
