To Use FaceID, Fingerprint Sensor on Android Will Be Outdated Technology?

The development of a successful fingerprint sensor concept is widely accepted by the smartphone industry and is popularly used for electronic payments as one of the user authentication steps. However, along with the advancement of the times and the increasingly advanced digital currents, this innovation will soon shift even regarded as obsolete technology, at least in premium devices.

A recent analysis was made by senior analysts from KGI Securities, Ming-Chi Kuo, who said that Android-based mobile phone vendors should pay more attention and more serious 3D sensing solutions for face recognition. As Apple did through FaceID.

Since the launch of iPhone X on September 12th, there have been many questions in the public mind about 3D sensing that are not only used for security applications but will also add new experiences for users in authenticating devices. Included in the utilization of augmented reality technology.
Related to this, Kuo said,

“3D sensing not only allows face recognition of security applications but allows users to create fun expressions like Apple’s Animoji, and even 3D sensing at a more important level, is a key factor in AR development.” Therefore, we believe that vendors Android smartphones are willing to spend more resources on components related to 3D sensing. ”

After Apple successfully introduced FaceID, Apple’s major rival Samsung Electronics is likely to retain optical fingerprint recognition as it can be customized with the company’s OLED displays. Moreover, avoiding the risk of lack of components is not an easy thing for device manufacturers who want to move to 3D sensing system. Then what about the Samsung Galaxy Note 9? Will it insert 3D sensing or other technology?

Kuo further mentioned that the fingerprint sensor pinned beneath the glass screen Samsung Galaxy Note 9 is quite sophisticated with a compact image sensor designed in such a way to fit with Samsung’s OLED panel.
