Samsung Display (a Samsung company) has unveiled a new generation of... OLED screens Which is the first of its kind in the world that comes with a built-in fingerprint along with revolutionary and unprecedented health features, in a move that would help the Korean giant dominate the global screen market and give its phones a competitive advantage in front of IPhone and other Android phones.
New Samsung screen
Samsung said that its new OLED screen is capable of reading and recognizing fingerprints anywhere on the screen, and that it has more than wonderful health features, and this includes the ability to check heart rate, measure blood pressure, and levels of anxiety and stress in the body using multiple finger readings. At the same time.
Typically, fingerprint sensors in smartphones are attached to the bottom of the display panel as a separate unit, and are only sensitive to fingerprint data on a limited part of the screen.
But for the new Samsung screen, the matter is completely different, because it is working to expand this sensitivity to include the entire screen by including an organic light-emitting diode in the panel itself.
In addition, this new revolutionary screen will bring many great features to smartphones, and this includes multi-finger authentication (the ability to place four fingers on the screen), which can enhance protection and secure smartphones and various transactions instead of using a single finger. Also, one of the possible features that could appear due to the new Samsung screen is the authentication of individual applications on the main screen of the phone, and it is intended to replace a passcode or facial recognition to be replaced by individual authentication by placing a finger on the application icon to open it.
As for the health features, the Korean giant claims that its new screen can check the heart rate, blood vessels, and measure blood pressure accurately, as the screen can sense the fingers of both hands at the same time, providing more accurate health information than what is provided by the wearable devices that exist today.
The company explains the method of measuring blood pressure in the body, as it says that the light of the OLED screen is reflected differently depending on the contraction and relaxation of blood vessels inside the finger, and when it returns to the plate it can be recognized and converted into a blood pressure reading.
Although Samsung did not provide any information about the resolution rate or speed of its screen, nor did it clarify whether it could take authentication and biometric readings at the same time, but it is confident in its new technology, and aims to integrate it into its smart phones in the near future to give it an advantage. Additional in front of Apple and iPhone.
What about Apple
Can something similar appear one day in your iPhone? It's no secret that Apple has been working on Touch ID technology designed to be placed under the screen since 2013 and has even been awarded several patents. Most recently earlier this year, the company was granted a patent related to the under-display fingerprint, which combines short-wave infrared technology with an optical imaging system that can have multiple functions. The latest version aims to not only read a user's fingerprint when they touch the screen, but can also identify vein pattern, blood oxygen, measure pulse, detect presence of gloves, and sense wetness.
Finally, will Apple put the fingerprint technology under the iPhone screen, or will it be integrated into the side button of the iPhone? No one knows what Apple thinks, but according to screen expert Ross Young, it is unlikely that we will see fingerprint technology under the iPhone screen. iPhone anytime soon, as Apple is focusing strongly on putting a face print and front camera at the bottom of the screen by 2027.
