Qualcomm, Synaptics to bring in-display fingerprint technology

Published on January 7, 2018

Numerous device manufacturers have attempted to bring the much-anticipated in-display fingerprint sensor into their products. However, they haven’t been able to achieve it for mass consumption. Technology giants such as Apple and Samsung have been able to develop Face ID and facial recognition technology but the in-display fingerprint sensor technology remains unaltered. Leading rumors and speculations have suggested that Samsung and Huawei are working on implementing the Face ID feature into their future products. However, there is no news about any developer working on the in-display fingerprint scanning technology.

According to a report published by Deccan Chronicle, Qualcomm and Synaptics are apparently working together to bring the in-display fingerprint scanning technology to live. Renowned leakster, Evan Blass took to his official Twitter account to publish a picture of the upcoming Doogee smartphone.

The handset is expected to come packed with the in-display fingerprint scanner. The image further goes on to suggest that the handset will share the looks with Apple’s iPhone X. Just like the iPhone X, the Doogee V smartphone will feature a curved front and rear. The report further notes that the companies faced several issues while testing the speed of the smartphone’s sensor and display performance.

Synaptics has already confirmed it is ready for mass production of the in-display fingerprint sensor and will be bringing it to major manufacturers this year,” the Deccan Chronicle report reads.

Apart from Synaptics and Qualcomm, even Vivo is expected to be one of those to incorporate this technology into their devices. The exact date for Vivo to bring in the under-the-display fingerprint scanning technology is not known as of yet. It remains to be seen how exactly the new technology will shape up in the near future. Nonetheless, it is exciting to see such technologies making their way into the mainstream market.
