Report: Apple is developing ultrasonic in-display fingerprint scanner
Samsung, as you've read right here on PhoneArena, has apparently decided to scrap the idea of using an in-display fingerprint scanner for this year's Samsung Galaxy Note 9. Instead, the new goal is to include the feature on the tenth anniversary Samsung Galaxy S10. Unlike the other manufacturers who are sourcing components for their in-display scanners, Samsung is keeping all of the technology in-house. That's because the company sees the ultrasonic biometric reader being used on many more products than just the smartphone. Samsung expects to see the scanner used in the future on cars and home appliances. Imagine starting your car with a touch of your finger.
KTB Investment & Securities expects 100 million in-display fingerprint sensors to be shipped next year, rising to 210 million units delivered during the following year. As far as Apple is concerned, we probably won't see an iPhone carry a fingerprint scanner under its display until next year at the earliest.
