Qualcomm demonstrates that the fingerprint sensor can be on the screen


As expected, Qualcomm (and Vivo) have shown the world a technology that allows the fingerprint sensor to be integrated into the touchscreen of a smartphone . In this way, the company brings a halo of hope to the launch of the iPhone 8 .
In several leaks we have seen how the iPhone 10th anniversary could come with Touch ID functionality positioned at the back of the terminal, and this is something that consumers have not yet convinced.

The idea of ​​integrating fingerprint reader technology under the display of a device has been the cause of the headaches of smartphone manufacturers. Without going any further, a few months ago leaked the fact that Apple was having problems with the implementation of the Touch ID on the iPhone 8.

Using the fingerprint reader on a screen is more than possible

The Qualcomm sensor for fingerprint reading on a device's screen runs under 800 micrometers of glass, twice as thick as the previous generation used in the Xiaomi Mi 5s .
Engadget tested the sensor on a prototype Vivo smartphone, reporting a series of problems.
"THE SPEED OF THE READER'S FINGERPRINT RECOGNITION IS QUITE SLOW. IT HAS ALSO BEEN DISAPPOINTING HOW SMALL THE RECONNAISSANCE AREA IS. "

Since Vivo have stated that the problems have been caused more by a financial question than by technical issues . Apparently, in the future it will be possible to apply fingerprint reading along the entire touch screen of a smartphone. But this, obviously, would be much more expensive to develop and manufacture.
Apple could be the first company to incorporate a fingerprint sensor under the screen of a smartphone , with the arrival of the 10th anniversary iPhone. Although the technology could also be present in the iPhone 7s and in the iPhone 7s Plus.
