These sensors can be fitted under displays, glass and metal, and can scan through OLED displays up to 1200 um. These sensors will launch in the first half of 2018. Not only this, these sensors can detect heart beat and blood flow whether the screen is on or off.
Qualcomm has also unveiled Snapdragon 450 for mid range and entry level phones. The new chipset will likely replace its predecessor Snapdragon 435. Qualcomm highlighted for major improvements in 450 over the previous generations.
Not only this, Qualcomm also introduced a new Qualcomm Smart Audio Platform to help manufacturers accelerate the development and commercialization of smart and networked speakers.
