"LG Innotek cut a shallow furrow of 0.01inches (0.3mm) thick on the lower backside of the cover glass and installed the fingerprint sensor inside of it with using their supreme precision and combination technology. With this module, the sensor is not exposed to the outside of the device, so manufacturer can produce a sleek designed smartphone. Fingerprint recognition area also can be indicated by various patterns up to design of complete product."The new design definitely looks way cooler, taking us one step closer to the kind of future Hollywood has promised us for decades. In terms of utility, getting rid of a physical sensor button would not only help make the phone more appealing but add more merit to design and water tightness. Although the scanner is equipped with the panel itself, LG’s new display is merely 0.3mm thicker that regular display screens. However, fingerprint scanning on smartphones is not as secure and foolproof as we think, since bypassing it with lifted fingerprints is not only possible but proven as well. Nonetheless, LG has definitely built a better alternative to the regular, and frankly odd looking fingerprint readers. Will you be looking forward to a futuristic touchscreen fingerprint scanner smartphone from LG? Let us know what you think about this innovative piece of technology below.
