New Qualcomm Sonic Max 3D Ultrasonic Sensor
The 3D Sonic Max brings improvements over the 3D Sonic that Samsung used in the Galaxy S10. The new sensor measures 20 mm x 30 mm compared to the 4 mm x 9 mm of its predecessor. According to Qualcomm, the largest area to allow the scanner capture a clearer and more complete image of the fingerprint, avoiding problems with screen protectors.
