Samsung rolls out new update dedicated to tricky ultrasonic fingerprint reader

Galaxy S10 and S10 Plus' latest update brings improves fingerprint scanner

The Galaxy S10 series come with a bunch of features in its Samsung One UI, but this one is our favorite: did you know that you can create animated GIFs without downloading any additional software, just by using the stock camera application?

There's a firmware patch rolling out to Samsung Galaxy S10 devices at the moment, and it appears to be updating the biometrics firmware on devices. The Galaxy Fold launches on April 26th, and should be available at select AT&T, T-Mobile, Best Buy and Samsung Experience stores for $1,980.

The update comes with a file size of 6.9 MB, and Sammobile says that it is a server-side release so users won't be able to manually update it.

Reports from users who've received the updates are positive, but because it's hard to measure the performance, we agree with Android Police's assessment that the placebo effect could be in play here. It's unclear if the sensor is actually any better, but at least Samsung is trying. It clocks in north of 500MB and includes March security patches.

Even in Russian Federation where the update is released, not all eligible devices may get the OTA update at once as the company typically rolls it out it in stages.

Whether we're talking about facial recognition or fingerprint sensor technology, the thing smartphone users care about most when unlocking their devices is speed.
