The recently released Samsung Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10+ can do a lot of great things, however it appears that they do tend to have a problem with third-party screen protectors. Due to the method the ultrasonic in-display fingerprint scanner works, any extra layer over the screen might cause problems or non-readings. To repair this, Samsung has revealed that the retail systems of the Samsung Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10+ will be shipping with a pre-applied screen protector – one with a cutout in location of the finger print scanner.
The screen protector has been produced by Samsung and according to its notification, the protector will be pre-applied on all “global subsidiaries and for all versions of Galaxy S10.” Though it was earlier reported that the screen guard will come with a three-month service warranty, Samsung has updated it’s post to explicitly point out that it’s not covered under guarantee.
Other bundled accessories nevertheless, including the Travel Adapter, USB Adapter, and AKG headset are safeguarded under the 1-year service warranty that includes the purchase of the phone. Interestingly our evaluation system didn’t have the screen protector pre-applied, or perhaps a separate one in package, which is plainly apparent in our Samsung Galaxy S10+ unboxing video below. However, this is most likely to alter by the time the systems go on sale at retail.
What makes this pre-applied screen guard so unique is that it comes with a circular cut-out right at the position where you utilize the finger print scanner. This is to ensure that there’s no disturbance with the ultrasonic sensing unit put in the phone for biometric scanning.
Samsung likewise pointed out that it’s offering replacement screen protectors throughout all Galaxy S10 variations at an MSRP of $29.99.
