Huawei to patent smartphones with an all-screen fingerprint unlock technology
Leading Chinese smartphone maker Huawei has filed a patent for smartphones with an all-screen fingerprint unlock technology.
The users will still have the option to “activate sensors in a chosen area on the screen while deactivating the rest on the screen space.”
The company has outlined a few potential applications for the technology, such as fingerprint verification for individual applications, through their icons. Huawei recently filed a patent for smartphones with an under-display selfie camera.
Huawei confirmed that it filed patents in China, Europe, the US, Japan, Korea as well as India.
The Chinese smartphone maker said that it had filed 2 patents in the month of April last year and that the patent has been finally published by CNIPA.
