I’ve come across 2 articles now that screen protectors will not work on S10 series. Last week a case maker brand tested their screen protector on actual S10 phones, it doesn't work due to ultrasonic fingerprint sensor. I wonder that how other leading brands like GadgetShieldz, Dbrand, Rhinoshield are gonna make screen protectors that works on S10 series. Eagerly waiting for the launch event to see that if Samsung has any solution for this.
Has any brand come up with any solutions? How is Samsung going to solve this??

***************Edit**************

It seems, as of now, only wet application screen protectors like Gadgetshieldz and UV tempered glass like whitestone dome would work with the S10 and S10+. I have also seen Tempered Glass with holes and thin films around the fingerprint area which looks insanely horrible.

With the whitestone costing a whooping 70US$ for the 2 pack and not available until 3/22 (in fact not available for shipping outside US at all), I have ordered the Gadgetshieldz screen + body protector combo for like 10$ from here https://www.gadgetshieldz.com/galaxy-screen-protectors-guards-covers and now looking for a cheap bumper.

That would complete my protection needs for now and will see how performance of other screen protectors pan out mean while.

Some brand said they use a different glue that will not interfere with the ultrasonic fingerprint sensor.

They tried that too, but it doesn't work it seems. It's like other brands are drastically looking for a solution to work on it.

We can expect that on the launch date of S10, Maybe some brands will also launch their screen protectors for s10.

Yes when the device is official out we can see what Samsung has really done with the S10 series.

I haven't heard it will have a hole in it? I saw a picture of one with a hole in it and it was ugly and I think not true. I know we have to wait and see but I just called this Zagg Kiosk at the mall and she said she has the Invisisheild one for the S 10 plus already no glass ones yet I said oh so it's going to work with the Ultra Sonic Sensor and she said I guess so. So I don't know but if It didn't work they would give you a refund. Everyone is saying Whitestone will be the only one to have a tempered glass one that will work so we will have to wait and see.

Apparently the whitestone dome will work with the onscreen fingerprint reader.

Theres no air gap with it like the usual screen protectors on curved screens
