The Galaxy S series will be completing a decade in the markets next year. With its tenth anniversary around the corner, the company is looking to introduce premium features like 3D sensing integration and under-display fingerprint sensors.
With Face ID quickly becoming a standard feature for smartphones, Samsung S10 is also expected to come with facial recognition technology.
After Apple launched its iPhone X with Face ID, Android devices have worked harder on providing a better experience.
Samsung is collaborating with Israeli camera expert Mantis and module manufacturer from Japan Namuga to introduce its facial recognition technology.
In the Apple iPhone X, the facial recognition technology is supported by its TrueDepth camera system, which uses 30,000 infrared dots to map the 3D model of the user’s face. This makes the technology highly secure for mobile payments and enables the user to have fun with ‘Animoji’ on iPhone X.
In the Samsung phones, the 3D camera tech might also improve the features that use Augmented Reality for functioning. As more smartphones come with AR features, the need for better hardware to support it on mobile applications also rises.
The company has clearly mentioned, that the technology will be incorporated even if some of the requirements are not met by the time the phone comes to the market. This will likely be the USP of the new phone, in its marketing highlights.
Samsung is also trying to build on the under-display fingerprint sensor feature in its upcoming phones. Such a feature is also expected on the Vivo X21. Samsung is collaborating with big names like Synaptics, Qualcomm and Aegis Technologies to incorporate new image sensors in the upcoming Galaxy S10.
There is no information on the price and availability of Galaxy S10 yet.
