The Galaxy S10 and S10 Plus arrive with screen protector installed


The Galaxy S10 has a fingerprint reader built into the screen.


The new flagship phones of Samsung, Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10 Plus, will come with preinstalled screen protectors, as confirmed by the company. This represents a change compared to the releases of previous Galaxy S line phones, which do not come with screen protectors. And, because the initial prices of Galaxy S10 and S10 Plus are US $ 900 and US $ 1,000, respectively, having an extra layer of screen protection is a useful factor.

The company also said it has added a screen protector to ensure the "full functionality of the ultrasonic fingerprint sensor" on the phones. The fingerprint sensors of the S10 and S10 Plus are integrated into the screens and using a screen protector from an external company could make the sensors not work well, according to Samsung. The screen protectors that come preinstalled on the phones are made by Samsung itself.

The screen protectors are not protected by the warranty year that applies to the other accessories that come in the box (the charger, the USB connector, etc.) and are sold for US $ 29.99 if you want to buy a replacement protector. Samsung is not the only company that does this. OnePlus has screen protectors preinstalled on your phones, such as the OnePlus 6T, for years.

The pre-sale of the Galaxy S10 began on February 21. The phones will officially go on sale on March 8.
