Samsung’s Ultrasonic fingerprint scanner is a revolutionary biometric authentication feature first launched in the Galaxy S10 series phones. This in-display fingerprint sensor attached to the Infinity-O display provides invisible but vault-like security that keeps your data safe.
Adding to this, biometric authentication is an important capability in smartphones today, especially for regulated industries and government agencies as well as your personal documents and photos.
The use of unique biometric identifiers to authenticate users provides a high level of protection for sensitive data, while mobile users enjoy a convenient unlock and sign-in experience.
Here’s why users prefer Samsung Ultrasonic fingerprint!
The adoption of in-display fingerprint ID technology on newer Galaxy devices was driven by customer research. Samsung data shows that fingerprinting is the most commonly used biometric method to unlock Samsung phones. And the company also knows that most users prefer a fingerprint sensor centered on the front of the device so that they can easily reach it with their thumb.
But there is a catch! Consumers also want a bigger display with thinner bezels than most. The development of an in-display fingerprint sensor, which does not take up screen real estate – presents a significant technology and design challenge. The solution is highly secure and it is important to meet the strict requirements of the users.
Samsung Ultrasonic Innovation Fingerprint
Without the use of an optical fingerprint sensor, Samsung applied Ultrasonic technology. The Ultrasonic wave is transmitted through the display and the ultrasonic pulse captures the uniqueness of the fingerprint. Samsung’s ultrasonic method for biometric verification has several advantages:
- In the optical method, the sensor has a visibility problem, resulting in a lower detection rate in bright sunlight. The ultrasonic method has an externally high detection rate and works well in low-temperature conditions.
- Counters spoofing attempts by using 2D replicas of a person’s fingerprint using an ultrasonic fingerprint ID. Each ridge and notch in User Print is mapped in 3D.
- To further enhance security, Samsung uses machine learning algorithms to help distinguish between real fingerprints and duplicate 3D replicas.
Today, many Galaxy users are using biometrics as a method to unlock their phones at will. Keeping security at your fingertips is the best way to quickly access essential and important information for businesses and their customers.

One UI 6.0 vs. 5.1: Uncovering the Striking Transformation in Notification and Quick Panel
Samsung’s latest One UI skin brings a redesigned Quick Panel. Compared to the One UI 5.1, the Notification and Quick Panel of One UI 6.0 look way better and clean. And some minor user interface tweaks offer an intuitive user experience and easier access.
Since both screenshots are taken in Light mode setting, anyone can easily spot the difference. At first, the bright color of the Notification Panel got dim, resulting in a clean and vibrant interface.
Rather than the section, UI elements got bright to better showcase the section. In One UI 5.1, the clock can be seen at the top left corner, which is aligned before the Day, and Date in One UI 6.0.

Talking about the Quick Panel, the differences are huge. One UI 5.1 version has quick settings toggles in the basic manner. However, the elements are well-organized in the new One UI 6.0 software.
The first row consists of two large tiles for Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. After that, there’s a large square section, which has a total of 12 toggles, with users can access more toggles through the pagination function.
Next to the second section, the third row has a large rectangular space, which consists of the Brightness slider as well as the Eye comfort shield and Light/Dark mode toggles. At last, two large tiles are aligned to incorporate:
- Smart View
- Device control.
