Huawei Is Working On An All-Screen Fingerprint Unlock Feature

In-display fingerprint scanners are the most popular unlocking method in 2020. Now, its time for advancement in unlocking technology. Huawei has applied for an all-screen fingerprint unlock patent. The Huawei All-Screen Fingerprint patent is awaiting approval in China, Europe, the United States, Japan, South Korea, and India.

Huawei Is Working On All-Screen Fingerprint Unlock Feature

As you may know, the current in-display fingerprint scanner is useable in a specific small area only. Out of the bounds, it will not work. Hence, Huawei has come up with the 2nd generation of in-display fingerprint scanners. The all-screen in-display fingerprint unlocks technology will allow you to tap anywhere on the display to unlock the phone.

Not only it will be easy to use but it will make multiple tasks faster. For example, Huawei claims that you can go to the text message app to view and reply to text messages without unlocking the device. Meaning you will not have to tap the icon, then verify your identity to access the app rather it’s just one tap away.

If you are a curious one, then you must have thought that this new technology will eat much more battery. It makes sense that if the sensor is turned on for all the display, it will eat more rather then just a specific area. For saving battery, Huawei allows you to “activate sensors in a chosen area on the screen while deactivating the rest on the screen space.” This means you can choose your favorite area where you usually unlock the device from, be it the bottom third or middle of the display.
