New Fingerprint Sensors can sense you underwater

Posted on Posted in Tech-'o'-Mania

Hey, fellas!! It’s pleasure meeting you all after such a long time. How’re you all doing?? Just checking out my phone this morning, saw some cool and exciting technologies on the web which made me shellshocked for a while. As in the past years, we have to press that power button to get into our smartphone but now it can be done in a more smarter way i.e by fingerprint sensors. It feels so amazing to have these new and innovative things in our life just because of some daily technology advancements. This techno world gives birth to such cool things that make our life far better than the days before.

As it is wisely said by Mr. Sukant Ratnakar,”Innovation is the outcome of a habit, not a random act.” Technology has reached such heights of advancements just because of some smart brains working all day and night. Their this habit of continuous experimentation gives rise to some great technologies. In today’s world, smartphones are equipped with so many latest features such as ultra-fast processors, better sound quality, sensors, great battery backup that will blow your minds away.So today we are talking about the one that’ll be coming to you in the future to blaze you all.



Here we are talking about the one that’ll be coming to you in the future to blaze you all. Mobile technology major Qualcomm has unveiled its next-gen fingerprint sensors for smartphones at Mobile World Congress Shanghai 2017. These next-generation sensors can be used underwater which makes this technology distinct and above all. The sensors can be fitted under displays, glass, and metal. These can also detect heartbeat and blood flow whether the screen is on or off. These next-generation fingerprint sensors can be designed to support sleeker, cutting-edge form factors, unique mobile authentication experiences, and enhanced security authentication. These sensors are expected to be launched in the first half of the year 2018.

How are these fingerprint sensors different?

Qualcomm Fingerprint Sensor for Display is the mobile industry’s first commercially announced multi-functional ultrasonic solution capable of scanning through OLED display stacks of up to 1200um, along with enrolling and matching, and Qualcomm Fingerprint Sensors for Glass and Metal are the first commercially announced to scan through up to 800 µm of cover glass and up to 650 µm of aluminum, an improvement over the previous generation’s 400 µm capability for glass or metal.

Qualcomm Fingerprint Sensors are designed as both an integrated solution with Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ Mobile Platforms, and as standalone sensors that can be used with other non-Snapdragon Platforms. Qualcomm Fingerprint Sensors for Glass and Metal are designed to be compatible with the recently announced Snapdragon 660 and 630 Mobile Platforms, and Qualcomm Fingerprint Sensors for Display, Glass and Metal are designed to be compatible with future Snapdragon Mobile Platforms and non-Snapdragon platforms.

These new features as compared to the previous generation, support more design flexibility for operators and original equipment manufacturers (OEM) by making it easier to differentiate products with unique form factors and advanced features and designs.

Where will you find these fingerprint sensors?

With Vivo Communication Technology Co. Ltd., Qualcomm Technologies will be demonstrating Qualcomm Fingerprint Sensors for Display and Metal using modified versions of the VIVO XPlay 6. Qualcomm Technologies will also be demonstrating Qualcomm Fingerprint Sensors for Glass using a modified device designed for demo purposes only. All demonstrations can be found at Qualcomm Technologies’ booth W5.E90 (Hall W5) at MWC Shanghai.
