Qualcomm is certainly making some news this week at Mobile World Congress. With a new 820 chip, a collaboration with Cyanogen, and now a new fingerprint sensor that promises to be better than Apple’s Touch ID.
Based on Snapdragon Sense ID, this new fingerprint sensor verifies your fingerprint in 3D using ultrasonic waves. This ultrasonic technology is now being used in biometric security applications. It can “penetrate the outer layers of skin, detecting three-dimensional details and unique fingerprint characteristics, including fingerprint ridges and sweat pores.” What that means is that others won’t be able to use a copy of your fingerprint to break into your phone. Apple’s Touch ID is based on a 2D image scan.
