Qualcomm launched its first 3D ultrasonic fingerprint sensor two years back. The company has today launched its second-generation ultrasonic fingerprint sensor.
While the first-generation provided reliability and security over traditional optical in-display sensors. It also had issues such as security flaws and slow speed.
Meanwhile, with the second-generation, the fingerprint sensor comes in two sizes. Both of which are 50% and 77% larger compared to the first-generation sensors. With this larger surface area for biometric, now the sensors will be capable of collecting over 1.7 times more of the data. Qualcomm’s first-generation has a surface area of 36mm²while the second-generation sensor has a surface area of 64mm².
Not only this, but the second-generation also comes with a 50% faster processing rate. This allows users to unlock their handset “quicker than ever.”
Qualcomm’s 3D Sonic Sensor Gen 2 will be launching this year. We will get to see this new generation sensor on the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S21 trio. The launch event is rite around the corner, so we will know soon enough whats this new sensor will be about
