This is how you enable and configure it.

In search of the truly full screen display, companies have been trying to figure out what to do with the front-facing camera. We’ve seen notches, pop-out cameras, and phones that just completely dismiss the front facing camera but put a secondary screen on the back of the phone so you can still take those perfect selfies.

The Galaxy S10 is the first Samsung phone with an in-display fingerprint sensor, and unlike the optical modules we’ve seen before, Samsung went with Qualcomm’s ultrasonic sensor. In theory, the ultrasonic sensor is meant to be faster and more secure than an optical module as it relies on ultrasonic waves to create a 3D map of your fingerprint, but that has proved otherwise.  [Read More…]
