A three-dimensional sensor maker claims to have put together a pair of technologies to put biometric facial authentication completely behind the OLED display of a device running Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 reference design. No punch or notch is required.

Reverence designs are diagrams showing the placement of a component in a device that others can use or augment in their Android devices.

Germany-based sensor maker trinamiX says in a statement that its design sets “the highest biometric security standards for future smartphones.”

TrinamiX executives say they have combined technologies to make the integration possible. It was announced during Qualcomm’s Snapdragon Summit 2022.

The design includes a new liveness check and Qualcomm’s Trusted Runtime Environment, which securely collects and processes a user’s biometric data. Both help protect people from growing threats. A video accompanying the launch reveals the use of skin detection technology from BASF subsidiary trinamiX in the presentation attack detection solution.

The face authentication function is certified by the International Internet Finance Authentication Alliance, the FIDO Alliance and by Android.
