Built-in screen fingerprint scanners have become very popular among manufacturers. To replace the optical ultrasonic sensors have already come, one of the suppliers of which was Qualcomm.
As reported 4PDA, the first generation of sensors 3D Sonic debuted on the market in the flagship Samsung Galaxy Galaxy S10 and S10+, and the company soon announced the release of even more advanced biometric solutions.
Characteristics. Qualcomm announced that the ultrasonic fingerprint scanner of the second generation will differ from its predecessor in a larger area of the working surface. Its size will be 8×8 mm, while the linear dimensions of the sensor first revision – 9×4 mm.

The thickness of the module will remain unchanged – at the level of 200 microns (compared to 3-mm optical solutions). Due to their compact design, the new product is suitable for installation even in the most subtle models of gadgets.
Features. Key features ultrasonic technology – high accuracy. The system recognizes even a wet or dirty finger of the owner in most cases. In addition, such a detector cannot be fooled, attaching a photo of the skin pattern. According to the company, the new version of Sonic 3D will also get the function of a heart rate monitor.
The first news from the new scanner will present in the second half of 2019
Company spokesman Gordon Thomas noted that the design of the new scanner will consist of three elements: ASIC (specialized integrated circuit), the connecting cable and the sensor itself. In the main layer of the sensor incorporates a glass layer, which also serves as a lining for the chip. In addition, the new module does not use silicon, which makes it cheaper and easier to manufacture.
