The Qualcomm ultrasonic fingerprint reader, which can be integrated with displays, has already hit the market thanks to the Galaxy S10, Note 10, S20 and Note 20 models. After two years, the manufacturer released the second generation of its scanner.
Qualcomm 3D Sonic Sensor Gen 2 brings 4 key improvements
First – larger scanning area. The first reader had an area of 4 x 9 mm, and the new one is 8 x 8 mm. More than 77 percent increase surface area from 36 to 64 mm increases the area of the screen to which you can put your finger.
Po drugie – higher degree of security. The increased scanning area translates into an analogous increase in the amount of data recorded after placing the finger on it.
Thirdly – higher speed of action. Despite the larger amount of recorded data, these are to be processed faster. Qualcomm declares 50% increase scan speed.
Fourthly – compatibility with foldable screens. The thickness of the Qualcomm 3D Sonic Sensor Gen 2 reader has been reduced to suddenly 0,2 mmwhich is to enable its use in unusual constructions. Including folding.
The first smartphone with the Qualcomm 3D Sonic Sensor Gen 2 reader will probably be the Samsung Galaxy S21
Qualcomm only officially announces that the first smartphones with a new reader will appear at the beginning of 202. However, it was already said that the Galaxy S21 is to get a new generation scanner. Its presentation just before the premiere of the new flagship coincides with these reports.
I would like to remind you that the Samsung Galaxy S21 will see the light of day on January 14.
