Samsung is studying the possibility of including once for all the FOD Fingertip On Display recognition technology.
The tech FOD sensor is developed by Qualcomm, Synaptics and Taiwanese Institute of Technology , but Qualcomm`s is the closest to commercialization.
The FOD technology will mean innovation, cost reduction and less weight for the Samsung Galaxy S10/S10+ smartphones.
In addition to FOD, Samsung is considering a Galaxy S10/S10+ with a Face ID function using a 3D sensing camera. Mantis Vision of Israel and Samsung Electronics Institute of Technology are conducting the algorithm development tasks required for the 3D sensing module.
If Samsung includes the TWO options, finger and face ID recognition, there is no reason to keep the iris authentication technology, which is two years old from Samsung Electronics. It is relatively unfit for the Galaxy S10, which has to be given 'innovation' in commemoration of its 10th anniversary.
Samsung Electronics has given the development code name 'Beyond' to Galaxy S10 in early May of this year and has been developing samples with partner companies in earnest. In the case of display, the number of inches was confirmed as follows: Samsung Galaxy S10 5.8 inch and Galaxy S10+ 6.3 inch.
