The third-generation ultrasonic fingerprint scanner from Qualcomm is most likely to be seen in Samsung’s upcoming flagship smartphone line, the Galaxy S23.
According to SamMobile, it is still unknown if it will have the same 3D Sonic Max sensor Qualcomm introduced earlier this year or a whole other fingerprint scanner.
In comparison to the 3D Sonic Gen 2 (8 mm x 8 mm) scanner used in the Galaxy S21 Ultra and Galaxy S22 Ultra, the Qualcomm 3D Sonic Max (20 mm × 30 mm) scanner has a surface area that is roughly ten times larger.
According to earlier rumours, the Galaxy S23 series will have a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor, E6 LTPO 3.0 Super AMOLED display with a 2,200 nits maximum brightness, and satellite connection for emergency texting.
A rumour from earlier this month stated that the tech giant would probably introduce the Galaxy S23 series in early February of the following year.
The forthcoming series may debut in the first week of February, with a subsequent announcement regarding its market availability.
A debut event for the new products is anticipated to be held by the tech giant in San Francisco, California, in the US.
