Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus leaked video shows in-display fingerprint scanner

A new video of the upcoming Galaxy S10 Plus has surfaced online, providing us with the clearest view of the phone we have had so far, including screen of the phone turning on and off. Not surprisingly, the video also seems to confirm some aspects that were being rumored for some time already.

Among those is the presence of the in-screen fingerprint sensor as signified by a circular cut-out along the bottom end of the phone on the front screen protector.

In any case, it is the S10 and S10 Plus that are rumored to benefit from the in-screen fingerprint sensor while the base S10E might just have a power key mounted biometric sensor along the side.

Also, with the S10 almost confirmed to come powered by a Snapdragon 855 chipset, what can perhaps be a safe bet is that the phone will feature an ultrasonic fingerprint sensor instead of an optical one.

Qualcomm has already been harping on the Snapdragon 855 being able to support the ultrasonic fingerprint sensor and the S10, in all likelihood will be the first to feature one.

Also evident is the slightly elongated cut-out in the top right corner for the front cam. The S10 Plus is expected to come with a front flash enabled 4K-ready selfie cam while there is another triple camera setup arranged at the rear. The array of three cameras is again slightly protruded from the rear surface and is arranged in a horizontal line. The video, however, has on display only the front of the phone.

The display size will also be another differentiating factor between the three models, with the base S10 E coming with a 5.8-inch QHD display while the S10 and S10 Plus having 6.1-inch and 6.3-inch displays. Also, while the SD855 chipset or Exynos 9820 for models sold outside the US, will be common across the range, the phone will come with memory and storage configurations of 6 GB/ 128 GB and 8 GB/ 512 GB. Then there also are rumors of a top-end limited edition model being in the offing, one that will have 12 gigs of memory and 1 TB of storage.

These apart, the S10 will be 5G ready beside being compliant with Wi-Fi 6 communication technology, The S10E is touted to be powered by a 3,100mAh battery while the S10 and S10 Plus will benefit from a 3,400mAh and 4,100mAh battery respectively. Besides, the phones are likely to be capable of reverse charging as well, a feature that will be called Powershare.

Samsung has already announced an event on Feb. 20, where the company is expected to launch the new S10 series. With less than a week left for that, the hype surrounding the phone is already aiming for the sky.
