Synaptics has the fingerprint reader integrated in the display: you may return the Touch ID?
Synaptics today announced that it has begun mass production of the fingerprint sensor Clear ID FS9500 to implement under the display. The production involves a partnership with a manufacturer (whose name has not been revealed), thus suggesting that at least one brand leading the field of smartphone (Apple?) will support this technology in the future.
The sensors for reading fingerprints Clear ID-FS9500 have been specifically created for the smartphone without physical button Home and with the display occupying almost totally the front, like the iPhone X or the Galaxy S8 Samsung. Synaptics said that the sensors are “activated magically” in the display when it is necessary, and is convinced that this solution is “two times faster than the facial recognition 3D”.
The sensor is created by Synaptics works fine with fingers wet, cold or dry, and because this is positioned below the display is resistant to scratches and water. Unlike facial recognition, which can fail from certain angles, the company does note that his solution works even when the device is positioned on a table, from any angle”.
Synaptics has not specified with which smartphone manufacturer is working, so at the moment it is only possible to make some assumptions. Although the company is a known supplier of Apple having produced components for display in the past, it is more likely that he is working with a manufacturer of Android smartphone. Samsung, Oppo, Vivo and Huawei are all potential partners.
Hope that Apple will consider this technology for future iOS devices? Or the Face ID the second you replaced so well loved Touch ID so you don't regret? Have your say in the comments.
