Samsung is working on a new technology that will make fingerprint login on smartphones significantly more secure than the fingerprint sensor technology used in smartphones today. Also Read – Apple’s new iOS update will make it easier to view old notifications
The current fingerprint sensor technology mainly uses a small fingerprint scanner that can read one fingerprint at a time. Now, according to a report by SamMobile, Samsung is working on a new technology that will turn the entire OLED display into a fingerprint scanner where users will be able to scan multiple fingerprints simultaneously. This will make fingerprint registrations 2.5 billion times more secure than the technology in use today. What’s Next? Samsung could start using this technology in its smartphones within two years.

Samsung Display announced, earlier this year, that it is developing an All-in-One fingerprint sensor solution for next-generation displays called OLED 2.0. According to reports, the Samsung OLED 2.0 display could include advanced fingerprint sensor technology that would enable smartphones to scan multiple fingerprints simultaneously.

At the heart of Samsung’s OLED 2.0 is OPD (Organic Photo Diode) multi-fingerprint sensing technology developed by a French company called ISORG that focuses on developing OPD modules. The technology includes an ultra-thin component sensor that can be laminated to an OLED display and allows multiple fingerprint sensing. According to reports, Samsung will use a version of the ISORG technology in its OLED 2.0 smartphone displays.
ISORG CEO Dieter Mai said in a recent interview that Samsung plans to use an in-cell version of the company’s technology. “Which means the approach and some of the proprietary materials may be identical, but you’ll get a result of trying to implement both the sensor and collimator inside the same OLED screen,” May said.
In the interview, the CEO of ISORG revealed that with a single fingerprint, the chance of a false positive is about one percent. “With OPD technology, you can either use four-finger authentication, upgrading security 2,500 million times on a single-finger version, or you can use ‘point of unlock’ security in specific applications,” he added.
As far as availability is concerned, ISORG technology is expected to go into mass production in 2023 and the company expects it to hit Samsung smartphones sometime in 2025.
