iPhone 12 might be the first to feature in-display fingerprint sensor

“Apple has reportedly started talking with suppliers about bring ultrasonic fingerprint sensor technology from Qualcomm to at least one iPhone for release as early as next year or possible 2021” writes Zach Epstein for An iPhone next year might be able to utilize an even more advanced variant of this kind of ultrasonic fingerprint sensor technology which Qualcomm is already supplying to Samsung phones like the Galaxy S10.If this iPhone rumor does pan out, the expectation is that the technology would definitely come to the top-of-the-line iPhone models, since it’s limited to OLED screens.Speaking of the technology, ultrasonic sensors are distinguished from optical versions in that the latter need light from a smartphone to produce an image of a fingerprint.
