The screen will be used in cellphones and will add touchscreen and biometric sensor functions to them.

As demonstrated in Samsung SCH – V960 Joystick phone, the fingerprint reading ability also gives Sharp the possibility to implement touchscreen scrolling function similar to that on Apple iPhone, in a way that is not covered by multiple Apple patents.
