The screen is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 6 which is scratch-resistant and durable. This phone display comes with HDR10+ support and has the always-on feature. If you notice, the fingerprint sensor is not on the back like it’s predecessor because it has been moved under the display. It is the ultrasonic in-display fingerprint sensor that Samsung used.
