A month ago, HMD Global introduced three new budget phones, the Nokia 2.1, the Nokia 3.1 and the Nokia 5.1. In addition, the company has a new high-end smartphone in development; insiders believe this is the Nokia 9. According to the latest speculations, this is the first smartphone from the Finnish manufacturer with a fingerprint scanner in the screen.
Nokia smartphone with an in-display fingerprint sensor
WinFuture last week released details about the alleged Nokia 9. The German news medium has received documents showing that a device is under development with code name A1 Plus (A1P / AOP). For comparison, the current top model, the Nokia 8 Sirocco, was internally designated as A1N.
For this device, HMD Global would have sought cooperation with FIH Mobile, a subsidiary of Foxconn. One of the highlights of the Nokia 9 is an integrated fingerprint scanner. At first, there were problems with the development; there would be a delay in the system.
But now HMD Global has got a grip on the case by using a thinner glass cover for the screen. The in-display fingerprint scanner will be similar to that of the Vivo X21 UD and the Huawei Mate RS. This is one of the reasons why an OLED display is used, LG Display becomes the supplier of the screen.
It is not the first time that there are rumors about an in-display fingerprint sensor. In March this year, we already published an article that the Nokia 9 would probably have a fingerprint scanner in the display. Click to continue on forum
