According to Synaptics, Clear ID technology is faster and more secure than the traditional biometrics and will allow phones to have a true bezel-less displays with edge-to-edge screens. Under display fingerprint sensor is a technology that has been long expected to arrive as smartphone manufactures bring out edge-to-edge displays. It has its limitations, where it only work with the phones that use OLED displays as the sensor looks through the spaces between subpixels from under the panel.
Even though the world's first smartphone with a (virtually) invisible fingerprint scanner might need a few more months before actually reaching store shelves around the world, its most important party trick is already comparable to many commercial solutions in terms of speed. UBI Research predicted that bezel-less displays will grow in market share from 20% in 2017 to over 50% by 2020. "Today's showcase of a ready-to-produce in-display fingerprint scanning smartphone featuring an optical fingerprint sensor is a big leap forward in bringing consumers this long-awaited, futuristic mobile experience. We are very excited to make it available to consumers soon", he added.
