The majority of fingerprint scanners on smartphones are placed under a button like the home button and now LG has developed a new fingerprint scanner for smartphones that is located under the handsets display.
According to LG this will allow manufacturers to enhance the design of their device as they are not restricted to have the fingerprint scanner with a home button or other button.
LG Innotek (CEO Jongseok Park) today announced an under glass fingerprint sensor module. It means you just placed your finger on the cover glass of the phone and then it identifies your fingerprint.
This module gives the freedom of the smartphone design and even enhances the user-friendly function, for example, waterproof or protection from scratches.
Previous ‘button type’ modules required you to press a finger on a raised square or circular button for your fingerprint to be read exactly, so the sensor was usually mounted on the front, rear or side buttons of a smartphone.
LG Innotek cut a shallow furrow of 0.01inches (0.3mm) thick on the lower backside of the cover glass and installed the fingerprint sensor inside of it with using their supreme precision and combination technology.
