Galaxy S10 to ditch iris scanner for Apple like Face ID

With each passing day, rumors are accumulating around the flagships from Samsung, Galaxy S10 and Note 9. Earlier the Note was rumored to come with a revolutionary S Pen with tons of features. This time, it is S10 that is the target of the latest rumors.

As the rumors suggest, the phone will come without an iris scanner. A South Korean website, The Bell has reported that the Galaxy S10 will come without the iris scanner and instead the company will equip the phone with 3D sensing front-facing cameras for Face recognition. So the device will ditch the iris scanner in favor of iPhone like Face ID.

This rumor holds some weight only because earlier it was reported that Samsung is working with an Israeli startup Mantis Vision, to develop a camera module for the Galaxy S10 that will allow the 3D facial recognition on the device with the help of infrared rays.

The bell also reported that the Galaxy S10 will have a screen size of 5.8-inch and the S10 Plus will have a 6.2-inch display which is already in line with the current flagships, S9 and S9 Plus respectively.

The report goes on to add that the iris scanner will not be the only form of authentication on the device, and the phone will also come equipped with the much-hyped in-display fingerprint scanner, a feature that was sadly cut down from the Note 9. The scanner will be designed by Qualcomm.

Other specs of the phone include a Snapdragon 855 which will be capable of 5G connectivity, along with an LPDDR 5 RAM and a UFS 3.0 storage. The Galaxy S10 is considered to be a substantial upgrade over the current S9.
