Recently introduced to the consumer market, the inclusion of biometrics under the screen has gradually consolidated itself as an increasingly viable option among available devices, aiming to replace traditional readers and helping to expand more and more space available for screens, without you need to include this feature on your back.
However, until then this technology was only possible to incorporate in devices that have an OLED-based panel, making this more costly for manufacturers and consumers, something that begins to change with the recent announcement by the manufacturer BOE.
According to the Beijing-based Chinese company, it has been possible to successfully develop an LCD-based screen that allows the offering of biometrics under the screen, and it is planned to begin mass production by the end of this year.
It is worth remembering that until then, the technology was further away from this mode of display due to the thickness of the LCD panels, considerably thicker than those based on OLED, making it difficult to effectively read the digital.
This announcement is an important breakthrough for the industry (and consumers), since it will now be possible to make the feature more popular on “cheaper” devices, with special focus on intermediate devices.
Obviously, there is still no forecast of effective availability of devices with the new screen but it is expected that news about this will be seen between the end of this year and the beginning of 2020.
So, what do you think of the novelty? Tell us in the comments!
