Recently, Huawei published a new twisted fingerprint method patent suitable for devices with larger displays, which is not a touch-sensitive screen. Aside from the thumbprints, plan prints, Iris, and facial expressions, this is something new in biometric lock technology.
As per the information, this new patent – “a touch method and electronic device based on twisted fingerprint” of Huawei released with the publication number CN113204308A has been applied back on 31st January 2020.
At work, this method is a bit complicated for the device without a touch screen. But the patent abstract describes the method in the following terms-
- The inbuild fingerprint sensor collects the fingerprint image
- Then the electronic device recognized the image and the first fingerprint indicated matching with the first twisted fingerprint from the first image
- Afterward, the device determines the twisting direction for the electronic device analysis first twisting direction
- Thus a user can successfully access the device even when it’s not a touch screen through the twisted fingerprint collected by the fingerprint sensor
Huawei’s Fingerprint Technology:
To date, Huawei owns handy of patents for different use cases that include fingerprint anti-counterfeiting technology to reduce fack fingerprint attempts, and fingerprint recovery technology using the fingerprint count.
Besides, this tech giant also registers under-screen patent technology and all screen fingerprint patent technology. The company is developing this technology to improve accuracy and reducing efforts, power consumption, and external threats.
