No matter how the three cameras are arranged, such as a square with a flash or horizontally as leaks, the first iPhone 3 camera is likely to become a reality. Because Samsung is also expected to participate in AI games with the Galaxy S10, it is possible to see 2019 as the best year to take photos on mobile devices, and not know what Google’s next Pixel will bring. Ultrasonic fingerprint scanner under the screen Galaxy S10 phone will make fingerprint scanning technology below the screen become more superior than today. It can operate through thicker glass than current solutions, which are slower and bulky than the fingerprint scanner that is not integrated in the screen.
