Samsung Likely to Ditch Fingerprint Scanner on the Galaxy M10

Samsung is all set to launch the first M series smartphone in India on January 28. There’s still no surety whether the company will be launching two M series phones or just one. Samsung is reportedly working on three M series phones to launch soon including the Galaxy M10, Galaxy M20 and Galaxy M30. On the launch day, we expect Samsung could launch the M10. The company, however, is yet to reveal official details about the smartphone. A lot has already been talked about the Galaxy M10 and also the M20. A new leak reveals some of the key specifications of the Samsung Galaxy M10. In addition to the leaked specs sheet, a couple of renders of the Galaxy M10 have also surfaced online which suggest that it is going to be a good looking phone. Amazon India is already out with the dedicated page for the upcoming Galaxy M series phone. The Amazon listing doesn’t reveal the name of the phone though. A user manual leak suggests that Samsung will not include fingerprint scanner on the Galaxy M10.

Samsung Galaxy M10 May Not Feature Fingerprint Scanner

As noted, another leak reveals some renders of the Samsung Galaxy M10. The renders which are basically sketches reveal the overall design of the Samsung Galaxy M10. They suggest that the Samsung Galaxy M10 will not include a fingerprint sensor on the back panel like most Samsung phones, does this possibly hint at in-display sensor? Well, considering it is going to be an affordable phone Samsung Galaxy M10 might not come with the in-display sensor. This means that Samsung might ditch the fingerprint sensor completely. Additionally, the sketches further reveal that the Samsung Galaxy M10 will come with Infinity V display.
