TAMPA BAY, Fla. – Feb. 21, 2019 – Madico, Inc. one of the world’s leading manufacturers of materials-based solutions, announced today that ProtectionPro® by Madico Ultra and Matte flexible screen protection film is compatible with the latest ultrasonic in-screen fingerprint sensor technology. This announcement was made in response to Samsung’s launch of its new smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy S10, on February 20. One of the hottest new features of the Galaxy S10 is the in-screen fingerprint ID used to unlock the device, eliminating the fingerprint sensor on the back. According to Android Central, while the in-screen fingerprint ID is an exciting upgrade to the Samsung Galaxy, it will not work with most tempered glass and rigid screen protectors but does work perfectly with flexible options such as ProtectionPro Ultra and Matte.
“Our retailers are thrilled that despite the many screen protectors in the market that are incompatible with this new generation of in-screen technology, ProtectionPro’s forward-looking technology will continue to be an incredible option for their millions of customers around the world,” said Brad Bacigalupi, Director of Global Business Development – ProtectionPro.
The new ultrasonic in-screen fingerprint sensor utilized on the Galaxy S10 devices was developed by Qualcomm. According to Qualcomm, the ultrasonic variant does not compare the print against a two-dimensional pattern like traditional sensors. Instead, Qualcomm’s all-new 3D Sonic Sensor creates a three-dimensional mold of the fingertip by bouncing soundwaves off the skin through the display. This makes it far more accurate than optical sensors that compare the pattern of the fingerprint.
ProtectionPro Ultra and Matte screen protection designs are now available to retailers on the ProtectionPro app for all three of the Samsung Galaxy S10 models as well as for the new Huawei Mate 20 Pro featuring similar in-screen fingerprint technology.
“As a company we are committed to keeping pace with the latest advances in mobile in-screen technology,” said Bob Smar, Director of Diversified Business Sales. “We are continually evaluating the effectiveness and relevancy of our screen and body protection products as well as maintaining the latest database of device patterns for our on-demand device protection cutting systems.”
