The South Korean electronics giant Samsung is developing a technique that will make fingerprint authentication 2.5 billion times more secure by 2025.
According to SamMobile, the new innovation will enable the whole OLED screen to scan numerous fingerprints at once, as instead of using a tiny scanner that can read just one fingerprint at a time.
The tech giant also revealed in August that it was working on an integrated fingerprint scanning solution for OLED 2.0 panels, the next generation of OLED technology. There will be no need for users of future Galaxy smartphones to worry about precisely positioning their fingerprints on the screen.
With OLED 2.0 and a future all-in-one fingerprint scanning technology, the whole screen may function as a fingerprint scanner. According to the research, Samsung was expected to be the industry pioneer in offering multi-fingerprint scanning.
Meanwhile, it was revealed last week that the IT giant was developing a smartphone application for DIY (do-it-yourself) lovers titled “Self Repair Assistant.” The company’s most recent trademark filing revealed its aspirations for its Self-Repair initiative.
