Samsung recently unveiled the Galaxy Z Fold4 and Galaxy Z Flip4 foldable phones, and the next high-end smartphones the Korean conglomerate will unveil are the Galaxy S23 devices, expected to arrive in January or February. The Galaxy S23 series will include an Ultra model, which, according to a new rumor, will feature Qualcomm’s 3D Sonic Max fingerprint scanning sensor.
This is not a new sensor, though. We’ve already seen it on the iQOO 9 Pro and vivo X80 Pro, meaning the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra will come with a faster fingerprint reader having a larger scanning area. We’ve used both the vivo X80 Pro and iQOO 9 Pro, and we were quite impressed with the accuracy and speed of the fingerprint scanner.

That said, it’s unclear if Samsung will use this new fingerprint scanner on all the Galaxy S23 smartphones or if it will only be the Galaxy S23 Ultra that will get an upgrade. We’ll hopefully find that out in the coming months.
