Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus Latest Leaks About Its Display, Camera and Processor

Better yet, it said that it's now starting mass production on the technology with a "top five OEM". Other rumors claimed that only next year's Samsung flagship may feature screens with built-in fingerprint sensors, and newer stories said that we'd have to wait for the Galaxy Note 9.

"Clear ID" is Synaptics new under-display fingerprint sensor which is set to enter mass production for the first time next year. Meanwhile, VentureBeat suggests that the fingerprint sensor will now be located underneath the camera array, instead of awkwardly next to it.

Many of you would be asking when will be see devices with this technology.

Samsung is one of the most important tech giants on the market and it works hard in order to maintain its position. The improved iris scanner could be Samsung's response to Apple's Face ID facial recognition system. However, Synaptics' press release also states that its technology can be used in all devices with Infinity Display. For instance, if the smartphone is placed on a table, users are required to lift the phone to reach out to the rear-facing fingerprint scanner or the bring the phone near to scan the face.

India's Nov retail inflation breaches central bank's 4% target
Carney's letter, which will be published in February, will be his first since October 2016 when inflation was a below-target 0.9%. The Bank of England is not expected to raise rates again at its meeting this week despite the rise in inflation.

"Consumers prefer fingerprint authentication on the front of the phone, and with the industry quickly shifting to bezel-free OLED infinity displays, the natural placement of the fingerprint sensor is in the display itself", writes Kevin Barber, Synaptics's mobile division senior vice president and general manager.

Samsung already offers facial recognition on its flagship smartphones, but the technology is not secure enough for financial transactions.

Synaptics said that its sensor can be completely covered in glass and will be able to determine a fingerprint from wet, dry, and cold fingers. The sensor can deliver one-touch high-resolution scanning through the full cover glass and enables a sleek, button free and bezel-free display without having to move the fingerprint scanner to the back or side of a smartphone.

According to Synaptics, its Clear ID uses optical in-display fingerprint-sensing technology and only activates when it's needed.
