New 3M film system brings the look and security of premium smartphone to LCD smartphones

Thanks to 3M science, makers of LCD smartphones can now offer consumers the same security and full-screen performance as premium OLED (organic light emitting diode) smartphones at a fraction of the cost with the new 3M™ Near Infrared Transmission System (NITS).

3M NITS uses advanced, micro-thin 3M optical display films to allow fingerprint-reading optical sensors to be placed behind an LCD screen. This new-to-the-world technology unlocks better security with a full screen for mobile phones and other devices featuring LCD display systems.

This system can be used in tablets, notebook computers and other LCD devices to bring both biometric security and a full screen. Imagine forgetting your alpha-numeric password and relying only on your fingerprint or eye scan to log into your bank, your work and other applications that should be accessible only to you.
