Spotted by SamMobile via XDA Developers, the feature isn't quite ready as yet but it's showing up in the settings of the Samsung Android Pie CRK3 release on the Galaxy Note 9.

Blass also notes that the Galaxy S10 will feature an in-display fingerprint scanner using ultrasonic technology, similar to the OnePlus 6T.

Although the Galaxy S9 launched with Android 8 Oreo, Samsung recently announced its next-generation software skin called One UI that will run over Android 9 Pie.

Like its predecessor, the next-generation Exynos boasts a security chip tasked with storing and managing personal and biometric data, including facial maps and fingerprint scans, in an isolated portion of the system.

The new chipset is capable of recording video at 8K at 30 frames per second. As is now customary in the smartphone business, gaming performance has been boosted thanks to a new ARM Mali G76 GPU.

Ireland coach Joe Schmidt believes the next two matches against the Pumas and New Zealand will see how far along the preparations are for the Rugby World Cup next year.

The company adds that the processor will go into mass production by the end of this year; that means it could find use in the company's upcoming Galaxy S10 flagship phone. When you unfold it, the device looks like a normal tablet, but if you prefer a smaller version of the display, you can simply fold the display's left side behind the rest.

Samsung quietly unveiled the Ice Blue Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus. Previous rumors have pointed to the Galaxy S10 (or maybe the S10 Plus) getting three rear cameras. The device will be supporting up to 22MP single sensors or 16MP + 16MP dual sensors.

These hints may tell us a lot about the Galaxy S10, but as always, they should be taken with a grain of salt until Samsung makes the phone official.

Evan Blass claims that the smartphone will have a "punch hole" near the top of its display which will house the front camera.

With the rumoured release still four months away, it's worth taking these details with a healthy pinch of salt.
