17x larger area and 2 fingerprints simultaneously: Qualcomm 3D Sonic Max Ultrasonic Fingerprint Scanner introduced

Published

on

Qualcomm has unveiled the next generation of the 3D Sonic Max ultrasonic fingerprint scanner ahead of CES 2022 in Las Vegas, which has many improvements over the previous generation.

Now 3D Sonic Max covers a larger area, supports dual fingerprint recognition at the same time, provides faster operation and is more secure. Thanks to this, smartphones will soon appear with more efficient under-screen fingerprint scanners and faster responses.

This sensor uses advanced ultrasonic technology to read 3D lines on the user’s fingers. The sensor will generate more accurate fingerprint images even if the finger is wet.

Qualcomm guarantees that the new technology featured in 3D Sonic Max can penetrate the surface of objects such as glass and metal for accurate fingerprint scanning. In addition, the company’s ultrasonic sensors currently cover only a small portion of the screen, but the new model covers 17 times the area, and the scanner can handle the job in just 0.2 seconds. Now you don’t need to touch a specific point at the bottom of the screen. The smartphone should still quickly recognize the fingerprint.

Another novelty that Qualcomm has unveiled is that the new sensor also supports simultaneous reading of two fingerprints. This will enhance the security of mobile payments and other applications.

For example, parents will be able to set up certain apps to unlock with two fingerprints (theirs and their child’s), so kids will only be able to unlock the phone with the help of their parents. On the other hand, the new 3D Sonic Max adopts a more compact and ultra-thin design (only 0.2mm), so it can be used in thinner smartphones.

The first domestic mission to the Moon in 46 years

Director General of Roscosmos Dmitry Rogozin outlined the launch date for the Luna-25 spacecraft, which is to be launched from the Vostochny cosmodrome.

“Until the end of September, we plan to launch this device from the Vostochny cosmodrome,” said Dmitry Rogozin, speaking at the New Horizons marathon of the Knowledge society. Earlier, he said that the launch date will be determined based on the results of the tests.

Alexander Mitkin, deputy general designer for electrical systems at NPO Lavochkin, said earlier that the launch of the first domestic mission to the moon in 46 years from the Vostochny cosmodrome is scheduled for August 22. Even earlier it was planned that the automatic station “Luna-25” will go to the Earth’s natural satellite in July. Rogozin later clarified that the launch is scheduled for the third quarter of 2022.

The main task of the mission will be to develop the basic technologies for soft landing in the circumpolar region and conduct contact studies of a given area of ​​the south pole of the moon.

iPhone 13 and 13 Pro Max became the best-selling phones in the world

iPhone 13 and 13 Pro Max became the best selling phones

Analyst Francisco Geronimo of IDC reports that Apple’s iPhone 13 was the world’s best-selling smartphone in the first quarter of this year despite major supply issues.

IDC does not disclose the total number of devices sold, as well as the market share of phones. The company recalls that the iPhone 12 and iPhone 11 were the top-selling phones of 2021 and 2020, respectively, so the iPhone 13 was expected to perform similarly. The iPhone 13 retails for $800 in the US, offering an Apple A15 Bionic SoC, a dual camera setup, a 6.1-inch notched display, and iOS 15.

iPhone 13 and 13 Pro Max became the best-selling phones in the world

The 6.7-inch iPhone 13 Pro Max took second place in the first quarter of 2022, indicating that people are more than willing to pay more for a bigger screen, better camera, and longer battery life.

The 6.1-inch iPhone 13 Pro took a respectable fourth place, while the tiny 5.4-inch iPhone 13 mini failed to make the top five. The latter further explains the rumors about Apple’s decision to phase out the iPhone mini. Combined, the iPhone 13 family accounts for 84% of total iPhone revenue in the first three months of 2022. The rest of the revenue comes from the iPhone SE (2022) and older iPhone 12 and iPhone 11 models. Analysts believe that the iPhone 14 could be even more successful.

Two 6.1-inch iPhones from Apple made the top five last quarter. But perhaps more important is the fact that the 6.7-inch Apple Pro model is outselling the 6.1-inch version. So the next generation 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Max could be an extremely profitable model for Apple. It will offer everything consumers love about Apple’s regular bestseller, but in a larger form factor that will be much more affordable than the Pro line.

The entry-level Samsung Galaxy A12 ranked third in the first quarter, while the mid-range Galaxy A32 ranked fifth.
