From the first under-display ultrasonic fingerprint scanner smartphone Galaxy S10 to the latest Galaxy S22, the fingerprint reader performance of Samsung smartphones is constantly improving. Now a report suggets that upcoming Samsung Galaxy S23 series phones will have an even better fingerprint sensor.
According to a new information via tipster @RGcloudS, all three Samsung Galaxy S23 series smartphones will come with Qualcomm’s third-generation ultrasonic fingerprint sensor. It’s reportedly the 3D Sonic Max sensor that Qualcomm launched earlier this year.
Qualcomm’s 3D Sonic Max is the world’s biggest and most advanced fingerprint scanner that has a surface area of 20mm x 30mm – a scanning area of two fingers. This is around 10x the size of the 3D Sonic Gen 2 scanner used in the Galaxy S21 Ultra and the Galaxy S22 Ultra.
The new Qualcomm scanner further offers five times better accuracy than the predecessor 3D Sonic Gen 2. In fact, it can enroll fingerprints in a single tap, making the fingerprint enrollment process significantly shorter.
It delivers high performance across a wide range of operating conditions including dry, wet, and even contaminated exposures, and is faster than legacy solutions when fingers get wet. Meanwhile, with built-in anti-spoofing, 3D Sonic meets the highest security standards for mobile devices, rejecting fake photos and fake molds of your finger
Well, the Galaxy S23 series is not the first to use the Qualcomm 3D Sonic Max fingerprint scanner, iQOO 9 Pro and Vivo X80 Pro have already installed it.
