The fingerprint reader embedded in the screen, which has been trying to develop since a couple of years ago but cannot be improved due to the lack of technology, was first shown to work at CES 2018.
In the future, phones will have different looks. It grows in size, its thickness is examined, and its frames are disappearing. With top-notch OLED screens, we can present spectacular colors and take photos similar to the photographs taken by professional photographers with dual cameras placed behind them. Despite all this innovation, there was no fingerprint reader embedded in the screen on these phones. Until today.
At full speed, CES 2018 introduced a phone with an embedded fingerprint scanner on the screen. The new sensor, which appears at Synaptics yesterday at CES 2018, is now ready to go out of the way. Because it is an independent component, the fingerprint scanner embedded in the screen does not look any different from other similar sensors that all manufacturers, including Samsung and Apple, can add to their phones. Companies can place this sensor anywhere on the OLED screen.
The sensor, which works only with OLED screens, illuminates the overlapping pixels with your finger and allows the light to make your fingerprint recognizable. If you have turned off the display and you have looked at the phone at a certain angle, you can see the sensor, but when the display is on, the sensor disappears completely.
Synaptics promises a 0.7-second scan time for authentication. You might think that the normal fingerprint reader is a little slower when you think it’s 0.2 seconds, but it does not seem to be a problem because the technology is new and the 0.7 second is too short.
Vivo says the phone is a device that can be driven to the market, but there is no explanation as to when the phone will come out and what the name will be. Well, do you think we can see this sensor on other phones soon?
