As technology progresses, smartphone manufacturers try their best to equip smartphones with improved hardware that offers more capabilities and utilizes less space physically to make these phones thinner than ever before. It’s tough and it seems that smartphone design has almost reached to its limits to become thin and near to bezel-less. The display cut-off camera holds on Galaxy S10 and the ultra-sonic fingerprint sensor incorporated beneath the display are few examples that would help to make the display ever bigger on smartphones.
Previously, tech companies tried their best to make in-display fingerprint sensor a success though due to various hiccups, its implementation isn’t widely seen apart from few test cases like the recently launched Vivo X21s. Likewise, another technology underworks for achieving a similar purpose is the ultra-sonic under-display fingerprint sensor that Qualcomm has been working on since long and the company aims to aims to launch it in 2019. Using optical scanning technology, such a sensor is incorporated within the display of the smartphone. Qualcomm has also been working hard to make 5G a reality and recently launched Snapdragon 855 SoC offering 5G support.
The ultrasonics scan fingerprints on the sensors much effectively while helps save space that the physical fingerprint sensor would otherwise hold. Chances are that we see this technology in the upcoming flagships like Galaxy S10 or smartphones from other companies like Xiaomi, Motorola, and Google as well. Are you excited for this technology?
