Android Beat Apple To The Punch On This Amazing New Smartphone Techby

While Apple have arguably been at the forefront of technological innovation for considerable years now, they have been facing some pretty stiff competition – and while Android may have suffered in the wake of some of Apple’s more impressive interfaces and product enhancements, the platform is still very much holding its own, particularly as it is still widely adapted by the likes of worldwide names such as Sony, Samsung and HTC. Recently, it has emerged that a new piece of tech could be debuting on Android devices ahead of Apple’s – though the iPhone moguls could still develop a similar strategy in a short period of time to cut up the competition.

The innovators at Qualcomm have revealed an ID sensor that could revolutionize the way Android users open and operate their devices – as it is set to be implemented beneath device screens to allow for greater flexibility in how devices can be designed in future. Fingerprint sensors are still fairly new tech – while some Apple devices may have Touch ID built-in to allow device owners to easily open their smartphones and tablets, this new technology is set to integrate directly into the screen, meaning that there will no longer be a need for external buttons or widgets – potentially, at least.

This will likely excite Android fans as it may mean that manufacturers such as Huawei and Samsung can produce slimmer phones to rival those of Apple’s iPhone range – and Qualcomm appear to have gotten ahead of the pack by announcing the sensors at a relatively early stage. Fingerprint access is set to be the next big thing in personal tech, and while Apple users may already feel at home with Touch ID, sources say it may not be long before innovators at the firm could start to push through with their own under-screen fingerprinting. But will the news come too late for such tech to be implemented in the forthcoming iPhone 8 – or have Apple got yet another surprise up their sleeve?

Fingerprint technology is set to revolutionize personal security over the next few years, particularly as it is regarded as the foolproof standard for safeguarding access panels and more besides in wider industry – and it is about time, arguably, that someone brought the technology home for us to be able to enjoy more secure phones and tablets.
