Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 with new double-sided in-display fingerprint sensor

The Galaxy Z Fold 4 is scheduled for launch in March next year, but the first information about the new folding Samsung is already circulating.

The patent registration dates back to March 31, 2021, but it is only now that the World Intellectual Property Office has officially released the information. In the 51-page documentation, it is possible to detect the new double-sided fingerprint sensor on the screen. And by all indications, this feature may already be available on Samsung’s next fold, the Galaxy Z Fold 4.

But let’s get to the details. Folding devices integrate flexible screens that can sometimes have a kind of “folds” precisely because they are flexible. This can make fingerprint recognition difficult.

Apparently, the South Korean giant has found the solution to such a problem with the new double-sided fingerprint sensor. Said documentation indicates the patent registration of a digital sensor that can be used, both on the outer screen and the inner screen, that is, double-sided.

Thanks to a small PCB that connects to the main PCB, the new sensor can be used on the outer display when the device is closed, as well as on the inner display when the device is fully open.

Although the patent registration of the new sensor does not offer much detail, it seems that it will be equipped with optical and ultrasonic technologies for fingerprint recognition.
