In Barcelona, ??Spain, at an exhibition of mobile technologies MWC 2017, Goodix (China) presented an original development in the field of biometric identification – a fingerprint sensor directly on the smartphone’s display. In a press release, Chinese engineers claim that the in-display Fingerprint Sensor created is a unique development that implements the ability to install the sensor even in organic curved AMOLED displays.
Installation of the detector is carried out directly on the screen of the mobile device, in a certain zone. This innovation will change the architecture of smartphones, remove the home button and expand the active area of ??the screen.
Among the leaders in the smartphone market there is no consensus on the use of built-in fingerprint detectors in the active area of ??the screen. However, for many models of mobile devices from Huawei, OPPO, Xiaomi, LG and Nokia, such sensors are already installed and are being tested for popularity among consumers. Apple and Samsung keep their developments secret, but according to information, the first tend to use the face recognition model instead of the fingerprint detector, and the second will transfer the detector to the back panel.
