Synaptics honored for its Clear ID optical-based in-display fingerprint sensor
Synaptics announced that its Clear ID optical-based in-display fingerprint sensor technology has been named “Component of the Year” at the 2018 Display Industry Awards.
Presented by the Society for Information Display, the 2018 Display Industry Awards recognize innovative display products, components, and applications that hold the most promise for shaping the future of the global display industry.
“We are delighted to award Synaptics a Display Component of the Year award for its Clear ID optical in-display fingerprint sensor,” said Wei Chen, SID’s Display Industry Awards committee chairman. “The Display Industry Awards are SID’s highest honor, presented to recognize the best display products or applications introduced to the market during the previous calendar year.”
“It is truly an honor to accept this prestigious award for Clear ID on behalf of the highly talented Synaptics team,” said Kevin Barber, senior vice president and general manager, Mobile Division, Synaptics. “We believe consumers prefer fingerprint authentication on the front of the phone, and with the industry moving towards bezel-free OLED infinity displays, the natural placement of the fingerprint sensor is in the display itself.”
Clear ID is now available on Vivo X20 Plus UD and Vivo X21 UD smartphones.
