Samsung Galaxy S10 is finally out and it somehow managed to launch with several controversies. Just before the launch, a rumour broke out which claimed that the Galaxy S10’s fingerprint scanner doesn’t work over screen protectors. Samsung is not the first company to launch a device with an in-display fingerprint sensor and we have seen Chinese companies make it work so it was weird that Samsung couldn’t make the sensor work over screen protectors.
The good thing is, it turned out to be just a rumour and Samsung’s in-display fingerprint scanner does work over the screen protector. The bad news is that the fingerprint scanner is visible in certain lights. A lot of media outlets have shared images of Galaxy S10 where you could clearly see a rectangle box in the bottom half of the display which is supposedly the fingerprint sensor. The silver lining though is that it’s not visible all the time and is visible in certain lights.
There’s a chance that this issue is only present in the media units and is fixed in the retail units. If not, we certainly do hope that Samsung fixes the issue soon.
