Samsung unveiled its flagship Galaxy S9 series at MWC 2018. It has been not even a month, and rumors about the Galaxy S10 have started surfacing. The Korea Herald reports that Samsung's 2019 flagship will come with a more advanced facial recognition technology. According to the publication, the smartphone could feature a 3D sensing camera module similar to that used by iPhone X.

Samsung has apparently approached an Israeli startup Mantis Vision to develop a 3D sensing camera module. Mantis Vision along with camera module firm Namuga, will create advanced hardware and software mix for the Galaxy S10. For those who are not aware, Namuga is already working with the South Korean tech giant to supply camera modules for its mid-range and entry-level handsets.

Unless you are living under a rock, you must know the rivalry between Samsung and Apple. The companies never let of a chance to mock each other. During the Galaxy S9/S9+ unveil event at MWC 2018, Samsung said that the fingerprint scanner is one of the most popular ways of unlocking our phones, and this is why it didn't get rid of the fingerprint scanner.

Well, Samsung very subtly mocked Apple for ditching the fingerprint scanner in favor of the Face ID.

It is too early to answer this question, but we don't think so. Even if Samsung manages to incorporate a highly advanced facial scanning feature into the Galaxy S10, it will probably still want to leave an alternative for the users to be on the safe side. Moreover, the company's statement at MWC 2018 also suggests that it won't ditch the fingerprint scanner anytime soon.

Galaxy S10 or Galaxy X?

Some reports suggest that Samsung will adopt a new naming scheme for the next-generation models. The Galaxy S10 series is expected to be announced with the moniker Samsung Galaxy X. It makes sense for Samsung to opt for this moniker as it will be an ideal answer to the iPhone X that Apple released last year as the company's tenth-anniversary edition.
