Qualcomm is not just dedicated to developing chipsets. That said, it also manufactures sensors that analyze fingerprints. For example, the ultrasonic fingerprint reader integrated in the Galaxy S10 was developed by Qualcomm. Meanwhile, new information that reached the Internet reveals that this company is working on a new sensor. It stands out for its larger area and above all for its higher performance with regard to the unlocking speed.
Qualcomm has a new fingerprint sensor on the screen
The information was revealed on Weibo by the leakster Digital Chat Station. In practice, it will be a new 20 mm x 30 mm ultrasonic sensor.
The new sensor has a larger scanning area and the recognition speed is also faster. The post on Weibo says the new sensor is likely to work with the Snapdragon 875 chipset to be launched next year. This means a debut in the top 2021.
However, Qualcomm also has another sensor that has not yet appeared on the devices. I speak of a 2nd generation 3D Sonic Max biometric sensor that is capable of analyzing two fingerprints at the same time. This means that you can have both thumbs on the screen to unlock your smartphone. The sensor is expected to appear in the next Galaxy Note 20 range to be launched in August.
As a result, the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra passed the Bluetooth SIG certification. This smartphone has the number SM-N986U and its existence calls into question the words of an expert who stated that this year’s Note 20 Ultra would not exist.
This is not the first appearance of this smartphone. This equipment had previously appeared on the Geekbench. At that time, the well-known Ice Universe leakster revealed that he would arrive with the Snapdragon 865+ chipset. However, we will also have a 25W charger in the box.
According to a recent certification, equipment with model number EB-BN980ABY (allegedly the Samsung Note 20) is expected to include a battery rated at 4170mAh. Which in turn should be equivalent to a 4300mAh battery! At the end of the cable, the Galaxy Note 10+ also had a battery rated at 4170mAh but came to market announcing 4300mAh.
That said, if these 4300mAh are really true, the device is much more attractive! However, new rumors suggest a 60Hz LTPO screen in this model, instead of the expected 120Hz OLED QHD + screen that should reach the Note 20+, which should result in greater energy efficiency on the screen. (Which is undeniably one of the biggest contributors to battery consumption in today’s smartphones.)
