The new features of the unveiled fingerprint sensors will leave many breathless. These features include sensors for display, glass and metal, detection of directional gestures, and underwater fingerprint match and device wake-up. It is dubbed the first commercially announced integrated ultrasonic-based mobile solution to detect heartbeat and blood flow for improved mobile authentication experiences.
“We are excited to announce Qualcomm Fingerprint Sensors because they can be designed to support sleeker, cutting-edge form factors, unique mobile authentication experiences, and enhanced security authentication,” said Seshu Madhavapeddy, vice president of product management at Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. “This provides OEMs and operators with the ability to offer truly distinct, differentiated devices with added value on truly groundbreaking new devices.”
Additionally, Qualcomm Fingerprint Sensor for Display is the mobile industry’s first commercially announced multi-functional ultrasonic solution able to scan through OLED display stacks of up to 1200um, along with enrolling and matching.
Finally, Qualcomm Fingerprint Sensors for Glass and Metal are the first commercially announced sensors to scan through up to 800 µm of cover glass and up to 650 µm of aluminum. Qualcomm is partnering with Vivo Communication Technology Co. Ltd. to demonstrate Qualcomm Fingerprint Sensors for Display and Metal using modified versions of the VIVO XPlay 6.
