“Samsung has been trying to keep pace with its in-display fingerprint options in the past few months, and has pushed the technology into a few new devices…”
The Samsung Galaxy A50 is one of the more powerful smartphones in its price range, but the device has had problems with its in-display fingerprint sensor since it launched in India in February. Customers have reported that the sensor is unreliable, and often need to go through multiple impressions in order to unlock their phones.
Thankfully, Samsung is aware of the problem and is responding with a software update that should improve the phone’s fingerprint recognition capabilities. The 438 MB server-side update is now available for download, and suggests that the problem was with the device’s software rather than the fingerprint sensor itself.
This is the second major update for the A50 phone, and comes only a couple of weeks after a March 2019 security patch. The update also includes some basic stability and security improvements.
Samsung has been trying to keep pace with its in-display fingerprint options in the past few months, and has pushed the technology into a few new devices. The recently released Galaxy S10 features an ultrasonic in-display fingerprint sensor from Qualcomm, and indicates that the company will continue to highlight the tech in its future offerings.
