Under Display Fingerprint Technology Suprema Joins Hands with Qualcomm

Suprema is a company engaged in making its proprietary under-display fingerprint sensor Biosign and their technology is already being used in the Samsung smartphones. Suprema has now joined hands with Qualcomm Technologies Inc, an arm of Qualcomm Incorporated, by licensing its product’s algorithm to the chipmaker. Under this agreement, wherever Qualcomm’s fingerprint sensors are used, Suprema’s algorithm will be deployed.

Samsung Galaxy S10 Models to Sport the Combination

As mentioned, Suprema has an ongoing arrangement with Samsung with the Samsung Galaxy J5 using the technology supplied by the company for the functioning of the fingerprint recognition software. The uniqueness of the Biosign algorithm is that it will read the shape of lines of the fingerprint of the user as appearing through the display screen and identify if that is of the user. So, you will now have the sensor supplied by Qualcomm and the algorithm by Suprema.

The sensors are made by Qualcomm and are more popularly known as ultrasonic sensors. You would have by this time heard this mentioned on many occasions in the recent past that the Samsung Galaxy S10 devices will be fitted with the ultrasonic under-display fingerprint sensors. These are nothing but the Qualcomm-Suprema Biosign sensors and algorithm mix.

But it is also being clarified that only the two top models will have this mechanism in place and not all three or four models under release on February 20.

Suprema Has the Touch Fingerprint Sensor Tech as Well

The previous version of Suprema, Biosign 2,  dealt with the fingerprint technology using the physical touch sensors fitted on most smartphones. The current under-display sensing technology is known by the version Biosign 3 and the current agreement with Qualcomm covers only this.

The trend to switch from the physical fingerprint sensor usually fitted on the rear panels or on the Home buttons of the smartphones as a security measure to unlock phones is now being replaced by the under-display variety. The sensor has a limited area within which the finger has to be placed and the sensor then does its work.

There are moves to explore further with the technology to expand the area on the display screen where the finger has to be placed for the sensor to read. Suprema is excited at this prospect of working with Qualcomm and is looking to expand its presence in the field by adding the face recognition technology as well as in addition to the fingerprint sensor.
