Samsung Galaxy Note 20 with huge in-display fingerprint sensor?
The Galaxy Note 20 series is to be equipped with a large fingerprint sensor under the display. This recognizes two fingers at the same time and covers almost the entire lower half of the screen. This means that users no longer have to catch a specific point on the display.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 20 and the Note 20 Plus should make it easier for users to unlock the device. Qualcomm's "3D Sonic Max", the "world's largest fingerprint sensor" as the manufacturer calls it, serves this purpose. It is likely to be found on the two Note 20 phones in the lower half of the screen and it recognizes two fingers at the same time. What this is good for is currently unclear, but the large area that will make unlocking easier will be an advantage.
Galaxy Note 20 and Note 20 Plus with 4,000 to 5,000 mAh battery
In any case, Ross Young, CEO of Display Chain Consultants, believes that Samsung will use this technology. Unusual: he revealed his assessment on the GregglesTV YouTube channel. Analysts and industry insiders tend to go public less aggressively because they typically work for suppliers and investors. Leaks from these circles are sometimes self-promotion for such professional target groups and sometimes just coincidence.

The "3D Sonic Max" fingerprint sensor makes unlocking your mobile phone easier.
Ross Young also revealed that the Galaxy Note 20 and the Note 20 Plus are expected to each have a 4,000 to 5,000 mAh battery. The larger model gets the larger battery, Ross could not give more precise information. Both pen phones are supposed to have 16 GB of RAM as standard – even the cheapest models.
Release is due in September
Also interesting: According to Young, Huawei is working on a foldable smartphone that will resemble the Galaxy Z Flip . Young believes that the Galaxy Note 20, 20 Plus and Galaxy Fold 2 will be presented in August and will be launched in September.
One thought on “Samsung Galaxy Note 20 with huge in-display fingerprint sensor?”
Hello, Thank you for reading my comment/remark.
I have a Note 20 Ultra since Sep 1, 2020. Before putting on the screen protector, I activated the Finger Sensor software to input two fingers (a thumb and a middle finger ) . The software indicated 100% input accuracy.
Once the screen protector (from ESRGEAR) installed the Finger Sensor issued a NO MATCH every time with both fingers.
I have the following comments:
1. Even for my small thumb , I consider that the surface area of the finger circle is SMALL and each time it asked me to reposition my finger. An increase of the Finger hole by 25% would well cover the whole finger and also avoid the repositioning requested by the software.
2. Increase the sensitivity of the sensor to compensate for the thin thickness of the screen protector.
One suggestion: a software App. to increase the sensitivity .
With a finger over the sensitive area, over the screen protector display the % of recognition of the finger and allow user to increase the sensitivity until there is a match.
Inform the users that some brand(s) of screen protector is not accepted by the 3D Sonic Max.
3. Inform the users that installing the PIN code first before the Finger Sensor function otherwise if the sensor cannot detect the finger print there will be a problem.
Is there a reset of the Finger sensor function? There should be one using the PIN code to access the phone.
4. On the top left corner I have a ghost image of time and day-date from my Note 9 data transfer. In the Setting..Lock screen..Clock Style….Type , the Time-Day-Date shows an image of “21:45 Mon Nov 18 from my Note 9 ” , a data not resetted by software everytime the new data is refreshed.
Currently on my phone (top left corner) there two images
of the time and day-date, one over the other.
Samsung Android 10 should consider an erase of previous data if new data is generated and screen is refreshed.
Thank you. I would be willing to send an image of the screen .
Is there a reset function somewhere in Android 10.
Thank you for your help
