While we wait for the arrival of Samsung Galaxy S23 in stores, set for the month of February 2023, we discover that the Suwon giant is working on a completely new technology for its fingerprint sensor, which could make it 2.5 billion times safer by 2025.
To reveal the news is a leak reported by Sammobilea website specializing in Samsung products, which has revealed that the Korean company is working on a system for improve the security of its scanners for fingerprints, to be implemented on smartphones in the coming years. However, work on the scanner would still be on the high seas, so it could take years before seeing it on a commercially available device.
What is special about the new scanner is that it could be up to 2.5 billion times safer compared to those currently mounted on the company’s smartphones. To achieve this incredible level of security, Samsung would be thinking about changing the area of the scanner itself, moving to one of larger dimensions and with the ability to record fingerprints from multiple fingers at the same time.
To make these devices should be the French ISORGwhose CEO Deiter May explained that he is working together with Samsung for embed sensors in OLED panels of the Korean manufacturer, probably targeting them for smartphones. On the other hand, we’ve known for months that Samsung is working on OLED 2.0 panels for its smartphones, which should have more advanced sensors than the current ones.
In mathematical terms, the possibility of scan three fingerprints instead of just one it is expected to provide 2.5 billion times more security than current-generation scanners. Also according to ISORG, then, only Samsung will implement this technology, at least initially: the company has in fact explained that it has spoken to Apple about a similar possibility, but the company said it wanted to continue using Face ID.
