Smart phone entity home key is about to disappear! In order to compete with the iPhone, Android mobile phone manufacturers that have cancelled the physical home key in the past and switched to touch or virtual keys have backed up and restarted the physical home key in order to integrate the fingerprint identification function in the home key, but the proportion of the screen to the body has to be sacrificed. However, through LG’s recent release of a touch screen solution, perhaps the “appearance” of iPhone and Android phones will be saved!
According to techradar, LG Innotek, a subsidiary of LG, has recently successfully embedded a 0.3mm thick fingerprint identification module into the touch screen. It is understood that the identification error rate of the fingerprint identification module embedded in the touch screen is only 0.002%, that is, there will be an error every 50000 identification, and the success rate is quite high.
In this way, mobile phone manufacturers looking forward to adding fingerprint identification function to smart phones can no longer succumb to the physical home key, but can achieve a high proportion of the screen to the body. In addition, because the fingerprint identification module is protected by the touch screen, the probability of accidental damage will be reduced. By embedding the fingerprint identification module into the screen, it will also facilitate the mobile phone factory to design waterproof and dustproof mobile equipment.
However, it is curious whether the fingerprint identification area of this solution can cover the whole touch screen; In addition, if the mobile phone accidentally falls and damages the screen, it is also worth paying attention to whether the fingerprint identification module will be damaged. It is quite exciting that according to the information disclosed by LG spokesman to etnews, the terminal equipment using the above solution is expected to come out within one year, and many questions about this technology are expected to be answered at that time.
