LG Unveils Under Glass Fingerprint Sensor Module Without Button

LG today unveiled an under glass fingerprint sensor module which lets smartphone users simply place their finger on the cover glass of their device for identification.Previous ‘button type’ modules required you to press a finger on a raised square or circular button for your fingerprint to be read exactly, so the sensor was usually mounted on the front, rear or side buttons of a smartphone. For example, Apple uses its round home button as the fingerprint sensor. LG 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 this design, the sensor is not exposed to the outside of the device. High-strength cover glass protects the sensor and prevents it from coming in direct contact with water or damage from scratches.Share Article:Facebook,   Twitter,   LinkedIn,   Google Plus,   Email,   Reddit,   Digg,   Delicious,   StumbleUponFollow iClarified:Facebook,   Twitter,   LinkedIn,   Google Plus,   Newsletter,   App Store,   YouTubeAdvertise Here
