Samsung Galaxy S9 will have an improved 3MP Iris Scanning camera sensor

Share

Despite not identifying the manufacturer it is supplying the advanced sensors to, it's quite clear that it could no other be than Samsung because Synaptics said that the sensors are "designed for smartphones with infinity displays". And since Samsung is one of the leading players in tech, there is no doubt that there are plenty of expectations on the upcoming Galaxy S9.

That doesn't narrow it down to a Samsung device in and of itself, but the firm's press release went one further by saying "with the industry quickly shifting to bezel-free OLED infinity displays, the natural placement of the fingerprint sensor is in the display itself". However, that won't be the same in all markets, as Samsung has made it a habit of launching Qualcomm-based devices in the North American market only; everywhere else tends to get much the same phone, except the beating heart is replaced by its own Exynos processor desgins.

No more accessing the fingerprint reader from the back plate of smartphones. This will enable higher resolution scanning and allow for the phone to better recognize the user's facial features. Samsung will be using a 3-megapixel lens instead of 2 megapixels to achieve this.

This Tuesday, Synaptics issued a press release, announcing its stellar invention of a display-embedded fingerprint reader for mobile phones. The scanner is designed for devices with almost bezel-less display on the front. This will apparently increase the clarity of the iris scanner giving users better security even when they have glasses on or when they are in light or dark environments. Synaptics' high-performance Clear ID FS9500 optical solution excels with wet, dry and cold fingers, and since it's protected by glass, is durable, scratchproof and waterproof.

Marshall Faulk, More Suspended by NFL Network over Sexual Harassment Allegations
Taylor is accused of sending Cantor sexually inappropriate pictures of himself and video of himself masturbating in the shower. The amended complaint filed Monday detailed specific acts of harassment by several individuals who aren't named as defendants.

Synaptics optical fingerprint sensors are available with SentryPoint™ technology, offering OEMs a widerange of unique and highly secure authentication features including: Quantum Matcher™ for adaptive fingerprint template matching and authentication; PurePrint™ anti-spoof technology to examine fingerprint images using unique artificial intelligence technology to distinguish between spoofs and actual fingers; and SecureLink™ which combines support for TLS protocol with ECC authentication and AES encryption. Let us know in comments.

Since face recognition has been a new norm for the latest flagship smartphones and phones such as the new OnePlus 5T have done a good at implementing the feature, we can expect the S9 to have a more robust way of performing its facial recognition for security using a new iris scanner this time around.

Josh McCown to have surgery on broken left hand
Sunday was only the fourth game of the season where the Broncos have taken a lead into halftime thanks largely to turnovers. Upon returning, he threw an interception on his first pass. "It just sucks", an emotional McCown said after the game.

As to which smartphone maker will include the technology first, that remains mostly unknown.
