The debate over whether the fingerprint sensor should be on the front, the back or one of the sides still does not have a clear winner, but what is certain is that the new mobile without frames require manufacturers to place them In the back.
That may not be necessary in the next editions of these mobiles, because Synaptics has introduced its new fingerprint sensors and among them stands out the FS4600 model, which can be placed on the front like a virtual software button.
A mobile solution without frames with sensor on the front
We already talked about Synaptics developments in this sense a few months ago, and now come to the market sensors that could be one of the striking features of mobile devices of the future.
The new sensors not only record that fingerprint, but are able to react to different pressure forces, accept gestures and even give the option of also serve as navigation buttons for the interface of these mobiles.
However the most remarkable of this type of sensor that ability to display a fingerprint sensor through a software button. That would have solved for example the paper to Samsung in its new S8 and S8 +, that for the first time have relegated this sensor to a debatable position (next to the camera) in the back part.
We'll see if the future S9 Synaptics advantage of this development, which will hopefully arrive before even other models on the market ... as the potential Galaxy Note 8 if the firm announces this fall.
