It’s LG the less known South Korean Manufacturer in the Indian Mobile Market. They so make durable and innovative stuff. Talking about innovation, LG has just reinvented the fingerprint the reader. More details are given below.
LG announced the new fingerprint reader last night, stating that this new sensor “gives the freedom of the smartphone design and even enhances the user-friendly function.” What they are saying is that this isn’t the typical “button type” design, which should allow manufacturers to focus on additional features, like water resistance and a sleeker design. LG also said that the fingerprint recognition area “can be indicated by various patterns up to design of the complete product.”
In order to implement this new under-glass fingerprint sensor, LG says they are creating a furrow of 0.3mm thick under the bottom portion of a phone’s glass panel before using a proprietary adhesive to get it to stick. You can see a sample of it above, where we have a display panel and a fingerprint sensor that can’t be seen, outside of the connector for it, which would be embedded within a phone anyway.
LG says that this new fingerprint sensor has a 0.002% false acceptance rate (FAR), the rate at which it incorrectly recognizes someone else’s biometric information as that of the user.
