The chip-maker also claims that the new sensor is fast and fairly easy to use, but we'll have to check that out for ourselves when phones with the sensor launch, which they're expected to in 2020. GIS would cooperate with Qualcomm to supply necessary components.

There are now two types of under-display fingerprint sensors, including optical and ultrasonic. Apple's Face ID offers the same accuracy rate. This makes the 3D Sonic Max the world's largest fingerprint sensor and also the first in the world to enable two-finger authentication.

In a closed-door briefing on the sidelines of the 2019 Mobile World Congress conference in Barcelona, Qualcomm director Gordon Thomas reportedly disclosed that the company plans to create even larger under-display fingerprint sensors than the one used in Samsung's latest smartphones, with an eventual goal of developing a sensor that works across virtually the entire display.

Unlike the last 3D Sonic model, the updated 3D Sonic Max sensor identifies what it's sensing with ultrasonic waves on its own hardware and not via algorithms and processing somewhere else on the device.

Qualcomm was the first company to introduce an under-display ultrasonic fingerprint scanner, the 3D Sonic Sensor, the same piece of technology that's now embedded under Samsung Galaxy S10's stunning display.
