Samsung Galaxy S10 in-display fingerprint sensor, OIS-enabled selfie camera, reverse wireless charging teased

“The Samsung Galaxy S10 teaser videos highlighting these features were shared by the company in Vietnam”

Samsung has started teasing its upcoming Galaxy S-series smartphones, which are slated to launch on February 20th in San Francisco. The first set of Galaxy S10 teasers are coming from Vietnam. Samsung’s marketing team in the country has shared three short videos for the handsets – each revealing different features that were already known to us through multiple leaks and rumours.


The first video reveals the Galaxy S10’s charging capability. Several batteries charged by a single battery icon in the middle could indicate the handset’s reverse wireless charging – the glimpse of which Huawei has given to us with Mate 20 Pro smartphone. Or the video could also be telling us about the faster wired charging of the phone itself.

The second video has the Galaxy S10 selfie camera in action. The six-second clip shows the handset’s selfie camera shooting non-hazy images even if the subject is in action. The device could be pulling that off with OIS or software tricks, for which we have to wait until the official launch. Samsung also reveals the Galaxy S10 with an almost bezel-less display with no notch or cut-out whatsoever. A screen-hole will house the front camera of the smartphone, while the sensors and earpiece are likely to be shifted under the panel.

In the last teaser video, the Galaxy S10 in-display fingerprint sensor can be seen. The handset is going to be the first device to come with an ultrasonic scanner embedded in the display for biometrics. Other than the standard Galaxy S10, its elder sibling Galaxy S10+ is also expected to boast of an in-display fingerprint sensor. The entry-level Galaxy S10e, however, is rumoured to have a side-mounted fingerprint sensor.

The launch event is just a week away, so we won’t have to wait too long to find out what more the upcoming Samsung flagship range will bring to the customers. We’ll continue bringing to you all the updates about the Galaxy S10 series as soon as they become available, so stay tuned!
