The South Korea based company has recently discovered a flaw in its topmost phone which is named as Samsung Galaxy S10 in its fingerprint system. As per the company, the fingerprint scanner is allowing the Samsung Galaxy S10 to be operated by a third party. However, the company has announced that they are working hard to fix this issue on Thursday. This ultrasonic in-screen fingerprint scanner can literally be unlocked by any user as long as there is a screen protector contained in it or various other objects such as a piece of paper between the sensor as well as the plastic. A report says that a Samsung user from Britain has originally discovered this issue she saw that she could easily unlock her husband’s phone by simply adding a screen protector which was purchased from an online store. After reporting this issue to the Samsung the users said, “admitted it looked like a security breach”. When a reporter asked a spokesman of Samsung, he said, “We are investigating this internally. We recommend all customers to use Samsung authorized accessories, specifically designed for Samsung products.”
They further said, “We encourage any customers with questions or who need support downloading the latest software to contact us directly at 1-800-SAMSUNG.” We all know that biometric scanning has earned lots of popularity for a few years as it offers more security as compared to the traditional passcodes. The new option for the Samsung Galaxy S10 as well as Note 10 which allows people in scanning their finger that is embedded in their screen rather than just placing them on a hardware sensor. We will have a more detailed look at the features of the Samsung Galaxy S10.
When a user places his or her thumb on the screen of the phone, it sends the ultrasonic pulses which help in detecting the 3D ridges as well as valleys of the unique fingerprint to accurately as well as quickly recognize the person. The issue is so serious that one of the internet-only banks of South Korea has asked its all customers who are the Samsung users in using the pattern locks as well as passwords while using the mobile banking or internet banking services until and unless the issue is being fixed. We hope you know that Samsung is the flagship subsidiary of the well known Samsung Group from South Korea. This tech group is the biggest conglomerated which control business in the world’s 11th largest economy. And the company is very important for the economic health of South Korea. But do you know it has a record where it has been humiliating the setbacks along with the well-known products which includes Samsung Galaxy Note 7 which was launched in 2016 and it was in the news for it’s over exploding batteries? Apart from this, the second issue of the Samsung is its Samsung Galaxy Fold which was launched in the month of September this year and soon after its release it was found with the faulty screens which forced the brand to dealy of the release of this handset.
Well coming back to the recent news again, when BBC news asked about this issue to Samsung, the brand said, “aware of the case of S10’s malfunctioning fingerprint recognition and will soon issue a software patch.” Now let us have a look at the features of the Samsung Galaxy S10.
We all know about the screen quality as well as the display of Samsung Galaxy S10. It is featured with 6.1 inches 19:9 Super AMOLED display panel.

Samsung has worked quite a lot to amp up the brightmess to get better visibility in outdoor as well as HDR10+ support for getting amazing colour as well as contrast. It is further featured with a QHD+ resolution which helps in creating a pixel density of 550ppi that make sure that each and everything on the screen looks in a detailed manner. Having said that, you can also get it in Full HD+ in the default mode that also looks great.

There is a noticeable work on the design. It comes with the aluminium frame which is further enhanced with the smooth glass. It comes with a various colour variation which includes Flamingo Pink, Prism Blue, Prism Black, Canary Yellow, Prism Green, Prism White. There is also a smaller camera bump on the backside of the phone which houses a triple-lens setup. However, there are no such signs on the invisible reverse wireless charging module of Samsung.

Not only this but also there is no such difficulty on using Samsung Galaxy S10 one-handed as it comes with the curved edges on the rear as well as the front which immensely helps in giving the effect which the smartphone is narrower. Having said that the metal, as well as the glass body, does not offer huge grip. The ultrasonic fingerprint sensor of the phone is quite different from the optical sensors situated on the One Plus 6T as well as Huawei Mate 20 Pro. The phone comes with Qualcomm backed tech to provide more secure as well as better which makes sure to do a 3D scan of your print but now the phone is facing the issue on its fingerprint sensor. But apart from that, the phone is working quite well. Qualcomm also said, “detect blood flow within the finger and actually prevent hackers from spoofing the device with a photo or a mould.”
