A photo of a protective glass created for the Samsung Galaxy S10 and S10 + appeared in the network, which suggests that the Korean giant has prepared quite a challenge for manufacturers of mobile accessories – glass will have to have one more cut-out?
Over the last few weeks, we've carefully studied all the details of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S10 smartphones, including a bunch of new technologies that they will be equipped with.
One of them will be an ultrasonic fingerprint reader mounted in the Super AMOLED screen, which is the first of its kind in the world – competitors usually use optical readers, which, using a special lens and screen backlight, collect data about our finger and record it in the database.Koreans did not go this way and decided to use ultrasounds, which are designed to allow faster and more accurate unlocking of the phone. According to previous announcements, the reader would cover up to 30 percent of the screen surface , which would solve the problem of having to put your finger to a specific place.
Need one more cut-out?
Everything sounds beautiful, while the producers of accessories , and more specifically protective glasses approach the whole topic less optimistically . The latest photo uploaded by one of the creators is visible Galaxy S10 + shielded by a coating with cut-outs for a selfie camera and … a biometric reader.This indicates the lack of cooperation between Samsung technology and glass, although it is worth adding that ultrasounds are capable of penetrating surfaces of this type and in theory should not cause problems. In practice, however, it turned out differently, and similar sentences about problems appeared in January, when the next creator of accessories encountered complications and withdrew from the production of protective glass for the Galaxy S10 and S10 +.
Official accessories the only salvation?
Samsung did not address the whole situation and it is very possible that he would propose complete and efficient glass without any detriment to the central part – otherwise the implementation of a modern reader may cause a wave of harsh criticism. Negative voices may appear anyway, due to the limited range of the sensor, which despite promising announcements is promoted in a rather symbolic way on the official advertisement. https://youtu.be/rKUkNcwySkA In the face of these situations , standard optical readers are coming out , although they also have a limited range, but they cope well with safety glasses and read more or less efficiently the data passing through them. For the opponents of both innovations, I also have good news – the cheapest Galaxy S10e will receive a classic biometric sensor, which is likely to be the fastest and most accurate.
