#SurfacePhone #Mobiles – Microsoft Surface Phone News and Updates: Microsoft Files Patent for New Fingerprint Scanning Technology : Microsoft is set to phase out its Lumia smartphone lineup and replace it with its own Surface brand. However, it’s not only the name that will be changing as new technologies are set to appear in the upcoming smartphone range.
New Patent for Fingerprint Technology
Microsoft has reportedly filed a new patent for the Surface Phone’s fingerprint scanner. This feature has been a staple for flagship devices since its mainstream introduction in 2014. However, the tech giant is expected to incorporate a new fingerprint technology for its next smartphone lineup.
The patent was titled “Fingerprint Detection with Transparent Cover”. It was submitted by Microsoft in February last year and was just published last month. Along with its rumored release, this puts the Surface Phone as the device sporting new scanning technology.
The Surface Phone’s fingerprint sensor would be different though. As most devices nowadays place the scanner at the rear of the device or incorporated on the home button, Microsoft will be integrating the scanner on the Surface Phone’s display.
How Does It Work?
The patent shows that the tech company would be using a filter and wave guide below the screen’s glass to scan for fingerprints. This would basically mean that whenever the users would key in their fingerprints to the Surface Phone’s screen, the sensors on the glass side would then be able to scan the different ridges of the unique fingerprint.
The patent then states that the Surface Phone will be equipped with a transparent cover and a light source at its edge. The light source would be configured to actually inject light into the transparent cover. This would then guide the light to interact with the fingerprint ridges.
