Qualcomm says that its 3D Sonic Sensor Gen 2 is now around 50 percent faster than before and is also 77 percent bigger, meaning it will be easier find on the screen.
The bigger sensor provides a larger region for you to place your finger and allows Qualcomm 3D Sonic Sensor to capture 1.7x more biometric data which should make it far more accurate.
Along being larger and quicker the new sensor continues to work even while wet so you shouldn’t have any issues accessing your screen in the rain. Qualcomm says its 3D Sonic Sensor Gen 2 is expected to debut in mobile devices in early 2021. That could mean one of the first to get this tech might be the new Galaxy S21.
As we mentioned earlier, Samsung already uses Qualcomm’s current technology on some of its most popular flagships so it would make sense for them to include this new scanner on all upcoming devices.
