Samsung could do away with iris scanning in the Galaxy S10, only two years after debuting it with the Galaxy Note 7, the media reported.

According to a report in Korean publication The Bell, the tech giant is already developing parts for the upcoming Galaxy S10 smartphone but has no plans to include an iris scanning module like in previous Galaxy devices.

“The highlight of the Galaxy S10 will indeed be the biggest feature cut from the Galaxy Note 9 — an in-display fingerprint reader,” the report added.

The physical form sizes of both smartphones is expected to reduce slightly as the company would cut down its already slim top and bottom bezels.

Cupertino-headquartered Apple was recently lauded for the accuracy of Face ID but criticised for removing the Touch ID fingerprint sensor altogether.

If Samsung can match the former while delivering the in-display reader many wanted on the iPhone X, then the Galaxy S10 should be a big hit, according to Forbes. (IANS)

Samsung Display Co. maintained its dominant position in the global smartphone display market in the first quarter as more handset makers adopted OLED panels for their premium products, a market researcher has said.

The display making unit of Samsung Electronics shipped $3.4 billion worth of smartphone displays in the January-March period, accounting for 40.2 per cent of the total market share, according to the data by IHS Markit.

The Korean firm’s market share shed 6.6 percentage points from a year earlier in the first quarter, but it was able to hold over 40 per cent of the share for eight consecutive months, as per data, Yonhap news agency reported.

Japan Display Inc. was a distant second player with a 12.3 per cent share, and China’s BOE came in third with 11.9 per cent. The Chinese company nearly doubled its market share compared with a year ago on the back of increased investment in flexible OLED panels.
