  1. „… Samsung and Apple and other companies trying to integrate exactly that tech…“

    Well, first of all, these were all just rumors and nothing official.

    „… they haven‘t succeeded yet …“.

    Well, if they even researched on that, they wouldn‘t just come and tell us about it. And keep in mind, one thing is to implement something like that on a prototype. Another thing is to bring it into a final product, into mass production and produce dozens of millions of devices in weeks.

    Apple for example spends hundreds of millions of dollars in research, but they don‘t tell us about their prototypes, working technologies and all the progress they‘re making. They bring technologies out to the world into final products. And even the prototypes and working technologies do not mean that they bring it to the market right away or even at all. Many smaller companies tend to show prototypes, some things they managed to implement, which is great and important, but not comparable to huge phone releases.

    All that said, it‘s great to see that phone with some great technology. Definitely credits to them for being able to show it working. Now I‘m interested in how the future is going to look when it comes to authentication methods.

  2. It is cool but this implementation definitely possess some issues as fingerprint readers did in the past and honestly a few more. Long term I think facial recognition makes the most sense along with scanners on the lock/side buttons. You'd really have to have an always on display to highlight the sensor area and you'd need to see the display to place your finger as their is no specific grooves how a home button or side button might have to know where to place a finger.
