At the ongoing Mobile World Congress Shanghai 2017, Chinese smartphone manufacturer Vivo along with Qualcomm has unveiled the next-generation ultrasonic fingerprint solution which brings new and enhanced features to the previous generation Sense ID fingerprint technology.
Vivo and Qualcomm Technologies have demonstrated the new Fingerprint Sensors for display and metal using modified versions of the Vivo XPlay 6 smartphone. The modified smartphone was fitted with Qualcomm’s under-display fingerprint scanner and the company also mentioned that the solution doesn’t require a physical button for the scanner.
In Vivo’s R&D plan, fingerprint scanning will not be carried out by an independent button or region. It will be realized more subtly under the screen, behind the metal shell, or even in the frame,” the company said.
Talking about how the technology works? Well, the new sensor which is based on Qualcomm’s Fingerprint Sensors technology will generate ultrasonic sound waves which then passes through the OLED screen. These sound waves will now capture an accurate and precise 3D image of a fingerprint. Then the sensor will match the fingerprint and unlock the device instantly.
