Synaptics has revealed its fingerprint sensor that can be placed under the display of a smartphone. The firm also revealed that a full production handset with the technology will be shown off at CES.
According to a report by The Korea Herald, the fingerprint scanner on the Samsung Galaxy S8 was moved at the last minute as Synaptics, the company developing the integrated scanner, ran out of time.
