<div _ngcontent-c14 = "" innerhtml = "

There are many reasons why everyone is excited about the 10th anniversary of the Samsung Galaxy S10. Most notably the casting triple rear cameras, Ultrasonic in-display reader, New color schemes gradients and Option 5G. Even Samsung is bragging of the Galaxy S10. But now there is news that will come as an unpleasant surprise to many … & nbsp;

"Great Secret Features" and "Nasty Surprises" are my regular columns investigating the best features / biggest issues hidden behind the headlines.

Drained by Ice Universe, arguably the industry's leading insider at the moment, we've learned that the Galaxy S10 will no longer try to compete with the popular iPhone Face ID system. In fact, Samsung seems to give up completely facial recognition.

"S10 cancels the iris sensor" States Ice Universe. Because? Because Samsung believes that "the ultrasonic fingerprint [sensor] is enough to replace it.

Justifying this movement, Ice Universe explains that the ultrasonic fingerprint sensor on the Galaxy S10 is different from any fingerprint reader on display we saw earlier. It is "faster and has a larger recognition area," with up to 30% of the screen responding to a user's fingerprint.

That is indeed significant. Because the viewers on display do not have physical borders, they can not be opened with a combination of muscle memory and feeling. But being able to tap anywhere on the bottom third of the Galaxy S10 screen to unlock the phone would change that.

Still, this does not completely replace an iris scanner.

Much like Apple's decision to drop the Touch ID on the iPhone and iPad tracks, which makes users more comfortable when using fingerprint unlocking (for example, getting to your phone in a meeting or wearing sunglasses) causes problems (such as wearing gloves).

In addition, Samsung's decision to support both technologies was a distinct selling point for Galaxy phones on iPhones. And with reports suggesting earlier Samsung was on the verge of a technological breakthrough who would have seen the quality of Face ID, it's a shame to see the company giving less choice to the owners.

So why is Samsung doing it?

The decision is believed to be based on the company's desire to provide the Galaxy S10 with a virtually seamless display. Chinese manufacturers such as Oppo, Vivo, Xiaomi and Lenovo have achieved this through various design innovations. And with Samsung's latest financial results showing losing to Chinese rivals, in particular, the company must compete head-on.

This is not the only commitment of the Galaxy S10.

Samsung is also widely expected to remove the headset of the Galaxy S10 to accommodate all of its technological innovations. Most rivals have already done this, but Samsung has been praised for its stubbornness and even used it as a marketing point.

So, yes, the Galaxy S10 looks like the most radical update of Samsung's smartphone history. But this 10th anniversary flagship will also come with some controversial compromises as part of the deal … & nbsp;
