Synaptics Perfects In-Display Fingerprint Sensors For Next Gen Smartphones

Samsung Galaxy Note 8

Otherwise, LG might have to settle for the Snapdragon 835 to rush release dates, which could mean that LG is planning to launch it ahead of its competitor Samsung, so the phone might arrive earlier than Samsung's flagship next year.

Synaptics also downplayed Apple's Face ID technology, which the Cupertino giant introduced with the iPhone X, when it stated, "Clear ID is faster than alternative biometrics such as 3D facial, highly-secure with SentryPoint technology, and very convenient with one-touch/one-step biometric authentication directly in the touchscreen display area of smartphones". Synaptics announced that it has perfected an under-the-display fingerprint scanner with what it calls Clear ID Optical Sensors.

One would think that there are going to be more features for the Galaxy S9 Plus besides the camera, and we hope this will be the case for this model, or else just better quality pictures isn't motivating enough.

Synaptics Inc, a company that is well-known for manufacturing touchpads and fingerprint sensors has officially announced Clear ID FS9500 optical in-display fingerprint scanner for smartphones. Specifically, the company claims its fingerprint sensor is able to accurately read a user's fingerprint in 0.7 seconds versus 1.4 seconds for a facial recognition camera biometrics sensor. This was the next level of user authentication after Touch ID using fingerprints.

Since the Clear ID remains well-protected under the durable glass of the screen, it is a water-resistant and scratch-resistant technology. Considering the widespread speculation and the plethora of rumours, we might not be able to see the new-age fingerprint sensor after all.

Gigi Hadid Sports Armpit Hair in Her 'Love' Advent Calendar Clip
Others said that it wasn't hair at all, instead just fluff from the jumper she wears at the start at the video. She continued: "If you don't feel strong every day, that's okay, and it's normal".

There's also this gem, which mentions OLED Infinity Displays. In the past, similar technologies including ultrasonic fingerprint recognition have been demoed at CES. If true, then the Clear ID sensors could guarantee users with protection from spoofers.

"Iris scanner is the safest biometric authentication (among iris, fingerprint and face recognition) and we will continue to improve the system for upcoming smartphones for safer banking transactions", a Samsung spokesperson told The Korean Herald.

While it's now obvious that in-screen fingerprint-scanning technology would become a big thing in the smartphone industry next year, Samsung could be the first one to take advantage of this invention.

So far, the rumors have suggested that the Samsung Galaxy S9 is expected to ship with a 5.8-inch QHD+ Super AMOLED, 4 or 6GB of RAM, and 64 or 128GB of internal storage.
