It is impossible to cheat due to the new features
This week, Qualcomm introduced Podebrady ultrasonic fingerprint sensor 3D Sonic Max, which became the world’s largest fingerprint scanner for smartphones.
Its main features need to include a huge area of recognition, which was increased in 17 times in comparison with the model of the previous generation. In addition, the 3D Sonic Max can recognize two fingerprints at the same time, while doing it faster than previous generation sensors that recognize only a single fingerprint.
Vice-President of Qualcomm after the announcement gave a short interview in which he stated that all other fingerprint sensor (3D Sonic Max) is not as secure as a new solution of the company. He also cited a couple of facts about the new product.
Most fingerprint scanners perform two-dimensional scanning, this makes it quite easy to fool the sensor. Besides the fact that 3D Sonic Max performs three-dimensional scanning (in this respect he is not a pioneer), Qualcomm claims that the new sensor can monitor heart rate. This makes it impossible to use even the exact three-dimensional copy of a finger with a perfectly reproduced a fingerprint to bypass the security system.
It should be noted that this description seems pretty impressive, but Samsung Galaxy S10 used the first 3D-sensor Qualcomm, which turned out to be pretty easy to cheat. So it is necessary to wait for the test results of the first smartphones with 3D Sonic Max, and only then draw conclusions.
