Samsung to improve S10's fingerprint sensor

Samsung has promised to improve the fingerprint sensor on the Galaxy S10 and S10 Plus.

The South Korean firm released their latest smartphone in the series last month, and noted that the ultrasonic scanner which has been playing up for some owners will see improvements in the updates.

Speaking to the Korea Herald, they said:

"The accuracy has been improved through the first update of the software recently just in one week since the launch.

"We will continue providing updates to make the scanner work better."

Qualcomm, who make the sensor, added that "it needs time for improvement."

The mobile editor of the publication, Julian Chokkattu, said that the sensor takes a while to get used to and could be "quicker".

He said: "It takes some getting used to, but it's the best in-display fingerprint sensor I've tested. I'd love if all phones switched to this design. It's not the quickest, but it's more convenient," in his review of the Galaxy S10 Plus.

Meanwhile, Samsung recently unveiled their Galaxy Fold.

Their first ever foldable device will be bendable in two places.

The head of the mobile division, DJ Koh, said: "Today, Samsung is writing the next chapter in mobile innovation history by changing what's possible in a smartphone.

"We created Galaxy Fold for those that want to experience what a premium foldable device can do, beyond the limitations of a traditional smartphone."

The Fold is essentially two devices in one as when folded it acts as a normal smartphone - but once opened out it is just like a tablet.

The Galaxy Fold will be available from May 3 in Europe, with the US getting hold of it first on April 26.
