Realme GT2: under screen fingerprint scanner will be more than a conventional sensor
From fingerprint scanners on the physical home button and then the fingerprint scanners on the back of the device, and finally side-mounted fingerprint scanners to optical fingerprint scanners that are under-screen and the most recent ultrasonic fingerprint scanners you could think that we’ve attained the top in “fingerprint scanners”. However, Realme insists on a different approach with its new fingerprint scanners that are under the screen in the upcoming Realme GT2 series.Chase Xu Qi on Weibo
