Small biometric security patch update for Galaxy S10 and S10+ fixes fingerprint sensor issues

S10 Galaxy Store update

Earlier today, we reported that Samsung is seeding out an update which brings along improvements for the camera as well as the performance of fingerprint sensor for the unlocked Galaxy S10 and S10 Plus devices in the US.

That’s not all Samsung got for the S10 sets, though. The South Korean tech major is also releasing a software patch for the global Galaxy S10 handsets too.

Samsung Android mobile giant is now rolling out an update for global variants of the Galaxy S10 handsets via the Galaxy Store. This isn’t any major update; however, the update brings along an improvement for the fingerprint sensor on the S10 and S10+.

This update weighs in at just 6.9 MB and if you own an S10 or S10 outside the US, then you should be receiving the notification anytime now. The update should enhance the performance of the in-display fingerprint sensor, making the unlocking process a bit faster than earlier.

Update: The update is also available in the US, where the S10 sets are powered by Snapdragon 855 processor. The update size for the US edition of the S10 sets is around 10.0MB. Here’a screenshot of that.

The biometrics security patch would be a relief to those users who’ve been facing issues while using the in-display ultra-sonic fingerprint scanner on the S10 handsets hence we’d suggest installing the small update right away.

How to update?

To do this, simply tap on Update once you receive the update notification. The update would then automatically begin downloading on your device. Apart from the improvements for the fingerprint sensor, this update brings along no other fixes or improvements.
