Samsung has vowed to continue improving the ultrasonic fingerprint sensor on the Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10 Plus smartphones, following the device’s launch with the new technology in February.
If you’re still having problems with the new sensor, this will be welcome news.
Fingerprint sensors are common on smartphones today, but Samsung opted to include Qualcomm’s new ultrasonic sensor on the S10, rather than one of the more common capacitive or photographic sensors.
It is set underneath the display on the front of the phone, and not on the rear panel.
New technology often brings new problems, and some have found the fingerprint sensor less reliable than alternative systems, or had negative experiences.
Samsung has been listening to the complaints and already sent out a software update to address some of the problems, but won’t be stopping there.
