In a recent article on The Verge, the founder of Brother Scanner, a software development company that allows for the scanning of iPhone 7s and 7s Plus smartphones, said he has had several issues with his new brother scanner, which is set to launch on Monday.
The article reported that Brother Scanning is currently in beta testing with over 500,000 users.
The company claims the device scans the devices with “only a few hundred pixels per inch” and has “no fingerprint sensor, no cellular, no NFC, and no NFC tag.”
“The only fingerprint sensor that we have is the one on the back of the phone, which can be found on the iPhone 8 and 9,” the company wrote in its blog post.
“The screen on the device is very thin.
It’s not a very high resolution screen at the moment, but you can’t see any fingerprint or other biometric information, and the camera is fairly low-resolution.”
While the device can scan for the fingerprint and facial recognition technology in addition to scanning for the physical fingerprint of the device, Brother Scan’s app doesn’t offer any other functionality besides the ability to scan.
Brother Scanner did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
