In-display fingerprint scanners seem to be the new rage, as all the relevant smartphone makers seem to be leaning in that direction. The reasons for its popularity are one that it’s cool and second, it brings back the fingerprint scanner to the front without having to compromise on the physical real estate that can be used to get a bigger screen. Samsung seems to be the newest company that wants to jump on this bandwagon according to reports. But it wants to do things a bit differently from what the other manufacturers are doing.

Samsung plans to use the new ultrasonic in-display fingerprint scanner technology that has been touted by the leading smartphone chip maker Qualcomm. And according to a previous report, Samsung plans to implement the new technology in its upcoming flagship smartphone the Galaxy S10.

According to tipster Ice Universe, Samsung also expects the fingerprint technology to be exclusive for at least six months in the year 2019. The new fingerprint sensor is all set to be faster than the presently available under display fingerprint sensor. The new technology will also be cover around 30 percent of the screen which is a larger area, making things easier for the user. This will help avoid the problem that is there with the present generation under display fingerprint sensors, which is that they cover too little of the screen and the user has to be pinpoint when using the fingerprint sensor.

Samsung has apparently already placed the orders for the new smartphone chips and expects the shipment to arrive late in 2018 or early 2019. This will incidentally allow Samsung to implement the new technology in its mid-ranged smartphones as well which will be released in 2019.

Reports from Phonearena claim that since the shipment of the chips will not be arriving until early 2019, it can be expected that the mid-ranged smartphones that will be getting the in-display fingerprint scanners will not be seen until the Mobile World Congress 2019.
