In the iPhone X phone, Apple encountered technical problems did not provide under the screen fingerprint recognition. But Samsung launched next year's Note 9 mobile phone, is expected to have this feature.
According to Taiwan's KGI investment adviser analyst Guo Ming said that the second half of next year, Samsung Electronics released Note 9 new phone, it may be configured under the screen optical fingerprint recognition. This means that consumers only need to put their fingers on the phone screen, you can verify the identity of unlock the phone.
According to the US media before the report, Apple had hoped in the iPhone X mobile phone screen under the fingerprint identification, but with the production deadline approaching, Apple was forced to cancel the design. The new iPhone X phone relies on a new three-dimensional identification sensor, introduced a brush face recognition function.
According to Guo Ming's research report, there are three suppliers to Samsung Electronics to provide under the fingerprint identification technology and parts.
Apple's fingerprint identification module supplier Synaptics may not be available to Samsung Electronics, because Samsung uses a completely different technology, the OLED screen as a sensor to identify the light source, which can improve cell phone battery life.
It is reported that the Korean company BeyondEyes and Samsung Group subsidiary Samsung LSI & rdquo; Samsung Electronics has provided a fingerprint identification module, is currently competing for orders. In addition to the current Samsung to provide traditional fingerprint identification module Egis company, may also be in the list of competitors.
In the past, Samsung Electronics launched a high-end flagship mobile phone face recognition (plane recognition technology, and Apple three-dimensional recognition is not the same), but Samsung's technology is not advanced, and Apple is more likely to be muddled through. In the previous report, Guo Ming has said that in the field of three-dimensional identification sensor, Apple may be ahead of the competition for 18 to 30 months.
Therefore, in the technical pursuit of Apple's three-dimensional face recognition at the same time, Samsung Electronics may first use the screen fingerprint recognition. Guo Ming also believes that facial recognition may be the future development trend of biometrics.
"The current analysis of the industry under the screen fingerprint identification industry shows that South Korean suppliers and Synaptics have some advantages," he said in a research note. "However, in the latest generation of biometrics, we prefer 3D recognition." & rdquo;
