Samsung she was going to come this year with her revolutionary technology which allows you to recognize the touchscreen simply by touching the display without the need for a fingerprint sensor on the back of your phone.
This technology would have to be implemented in the future Galaxy Note 9 what will be launched this year. We would also like to introduce it Galaxy S9, but the South Korean company encountered technical difficulties in its location fingerprint sensor below the screen.
Ready for launch in the third quarter of this year, it seems that this technology will have to wait until it can be implemented. It exists, but there are many protechnical problems. First of all, this feature will be canceled because the solutions offered by Qualcomm do not correspond to the technical requirements of those from Samsung. At the moment there is no possibility to place a fingerprint sensor under the screen that meets the requirements of Samsung. OLED screens could provide this biometric function, but they could become dysfunctional in some environments, involving high power consumption and scanning difficulties when a foil is installed on the display. proTector.
However, the solution may come to the end of 2019 when these technical difficulties are removed. Until then, Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus were launched with sensors on the back, and Samsung Galaxy Note 9 will follow the same course.
Not too long Apple had this idea for the iPhone X, but gave up trying to place a fingerprint sensor under the screen via Touch ID in favor of Face ID. A revolutionary technology developed by Apple and implemented through the TrueDepth system on iPhone X. Dan Riccio, head of the technology department of Apple took into account that in the future aproto completely abandon Touch ID, and to take the place of the new biometric facial scanning function.
