Qualcomm announced a data security information related to Android phones at the Snapdragon Technology Summit. It is expected that Android phones will replace ID cards and driver’s licenses as soon as 2020, which is worth looking forward to.
Qualcomm senior director of product security management Jesse Seed and Google Android platform security leader Sudhi Herie revealed at the Snapdragon 865 processor launch that the new processor will support mobile phone driver’s licenses and electronic ID cards. The next-generation system Android R will have the Android Identity Credential API, which supports various forms of identity authentication.
According to the first push of the Android Q Beta in March this year, Google will launch the Android R (Android 11) Beta at the same time as soon as 2020. More information will be announced at that time.
It is worth noting that even if Android R is ready to replace identity cards, driver’s licenses, and other documents at the software and hardware levels, it depends on whether the relevant departments will promote the relevant digital authentication mechanism, so it is temporarily uncertain what time it will take to completely Farewell to go out without a document.
