Synaptics has stated that its sensors are fully capable in both wet or dry conditions. These sensors are fitted with anti-spoof technology and AES encryption. This new technology will provide physical protection to smartphone screens against scratches and damage.
The fingerprint scanner would be stored above the touch sensor and beneath the cover glass. Samsung also plans to implement up to twelve pressure points spread in different areas, so that users can touch multiple areas on the display rather than just the bottom to have a fingerprint read. By using different areas of the screen to read the fingerprint will eventually result in different actions and unlocked areas of the device.
The Galaxy S9 is expected to be unveiled in January 2018. It would be the world’s first in-display fingerprint scanner for a mobile device. Which will definitely rock the world of smartphones next year.
