The Qualcomm 3D Sonic Sensor has been announced by the technology brand as a new biometric security solution that will likely start showing up in devices starting in 2019 to offer users an enhanced level of convenience.
The solution works by using ultrasonic technology to scan the user's fingerprint through the touchscreen display on a smartphone to eliminate the need for a separate section to be integrated. This makes more room for other essential components to be packed inside and ushers in a new level of convenient biometric security.
The Qualcomm 3D Sonic Sensor works to scan the images of your fingerprint in a 3D manner and is also capable of seeing through contaminants that might be on the screen (oil, debris, water etc.).
