The new sensor company gives you the opportunity to remove fingerprints through the screen of the phone works under water and allows you to bring the device from sleep mode.
Qualcomm claim that the new fingerprint scanner as biometric modules on modern smartphones. In Engadget has tested the technology on the smartphone Vivo and came to the conclusion that the sensor still works not as fast as wanted.
“My feeling is that the speed of fingerprint recognition is much lower than on modern smartphones. Takes about one second between touching the screen and the appearance of the desktop. Also was disappointed that the scanning area was very small,” – said journalists.
At the same time, the new Qualcomm scanner can work even under water, where the capacitive sensors are useless.

Commercial Android smartphones with built-in display fingerprint scanners appear on the market until the first half of next year. Therefore, the iPhone 8 could be the first large smartphone with this function.
