As you might know, the fingerprint recognition is the fastest way to unlock your smartphone and also the most reliable among biometric methods. So far, the fingerprint scanners are either located on the front in the home buttons (Samsung and Apple) or at the side such as Sony, or at the back as in LG and HTC phones. However, due to the growing trend of bigger displays which occupy a much larger proportion of the front side, there is no more space for the home button.

Now, the Chinese tech company and leading provider of fingerprint authentication solutions, Goodix, has unveiled its new in-display fingerprint sensor at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2017 in Barcelona (Spain). It is the first fingerprint sensor integrated into an AMOLED display of a mobile device. If the user wants to unlock his smartphone, he only has to place his finger on the display under which the new component is hidden. Is this groundbreaking invention the future of smartphones?
