    Description

    TECHNICAL FIELD



    [0001] The present invention relates to the field of electronic information technologies, and in particular, to application and picture display methods and apparatuses, and an electronic device.

    BACKGROUND



    [0002] Currently, as functions of electronic devices become increasingly powerful, more functional applications are installed in electronic devices. To help a user easily view a recently run application or a picture in an electronic device, the electronic device may display a screenshot of the recently run application or the picture in the electronic device according to an operation of the user. The application or picture is, for example, an album picture or a browser page.

    [0003] However, a screen capture of a recently run application or a picture in an electronic device usually includes private information of an owner user of the electronic device. When the electronic device is used by a user other than the owner user, the electronic device also displays a screenshot of a recently run application or a picture that includes the private information of the owner user of the electronic device, resulting in a leakage of the private information of the owner user, which increases an information security risk of the electronic device.

    DESCRIPTION OF EMBODIMENTS



    [0018] The following clearly and completely describes the technical solutions in the embodiment. The following clearly and completely describes the technical solutions in the embodiments of the present invention with reference to the accompanying drawings in the embodiments of the present invention. Apparently, the described embodiments are merely some but not all of the embodiments of the present invention. All other embodiments obtained by a person of ordinary skill in the art based on the embodiments of the present invention without creative efforts shall fall within the protection scope of the present invention.

    [0019] The technical solutions provided in the embodiments of the present invention are applied to an electronic device. In the embodiments of the present invention, the electronic device may be a device, such as a mobile telephone, a mobile computer, a tablet computer, a personal digital assistant (Personal Digital Assistant, PDA), a media player, a smart television, a smart watch, smart glasses, or a smart wristband. This is not limited herein. In a process in which the electronic device interacts with a user by means of an operation of the user, the electronic device may determine a permission of a touch operation of the user according to fingerprint information obtained from the touch operation of the user and preset fingerprint information, thereby protecting private information of an owner user. The fingerprint information may also be replaced with information, such as palm print information or iris information, that can be used to recognize a user.

    [0020] It should be noted that the terms used in the embodiments of the present invention are merely for the purpose of illustrating specific embodiments, and are not intended to limit the present invention. The terms "a", "said" and "the" of singular forms used in the embodiments and the appended claims of the present invention are also intended to include plural forms, unless otherwise specified in the context clearly. It should also be understood that, the term "and/or" used herein indicates and includes any or all possible combinations of one or more associated listed items.

    [0021] It should be understood that although the terms "first", "second", "third", and the like may be used in the embodiments of the present invention to describe various fingerprint information, applications, pictures, modules, and units, the fingerprint information, applications, pictures, modules, and units should not be limited to these terms. These terms are merely used to distinguish fingerprint information, applications, pictures, modules, and units from each other.

    [0022] An embodiment of the present invention provides an application display method, applied to an electronic device. First fingerprint information is stored in the electronic device, and a first application is installed in the electronic device. Verification against the first fingerprint information needs to be performed to run the first application. For example, when fingerprint information A used during verification is not the first fingerprint information, the fingerprint information A does not have a permission to run the first application. It should be noted that there may be one or more first applications. As shown in FIG. 1, the application display method in this embodiment of the present invention includes the following steps.

    [0023] 101: Receive a touch operation.

    [0024] The touch operation is used to request to display an application switch screen. The application switch screen includes a screen thumbnail of an application that is running in the electronic device within a preset period of time, or some basic information of an application that is running in the electronic device. The basic information is information such as a name, a developer, a previous start time, a previous exit time, a size of occupied memory, and used network traffic.

    [0025] In this embodiment of the present invention, the electronic device has a touch screen, and a fingerprint sensor is disposed on the electronic device, and can obtain fingerprint information from a touch operation of a user on the touch screen of the electronic device. The fingerprint sensor may be specifically a capacitive fingerprint sensor, an ultrasonic fingerprint sensor, an optical fingerprint sensor, a temperature fingerprint sensor, a swipe-type fingerprint sensor, a pressure-sensitive fingerprint sensor, or the like. It should be noted that, in this embodiment of the present invention, a specific manner and type of the touch operation are not limited. In different operating systems, the touch operation may be specifically different operations. For example, the electronic device displays a multi-task key icon, and the touch operation is an operation of tapping the multi-task key icon. Alternatively, the touch operation is an operation of pressing a HOME key twice. Alternatively, the touch operation is an operation of touching and holding a back key, and the like.

    [0026] 102: Obtain second fingerprint information from the touch operation.

    [0027] The second fingerprint information is obtained from the touch operation. The second fingerprint information may be one piece of fingerprint information, or may be multiple pieces of fingerprint information. Specific content of obtaining the second fingerprint information from the touch operation is described in subsequent embodiments.

    [0028] 103: Match the second fingerprint information and first fingerprint information.

    [0029] The electronic device matches the second fingerprint information obtained from the touch operation and the first fingerprint information prestored in the electronic device. When the second fingerprint information matches the first fingerprint information, it indicates that a fingerprint of a finger corresponding to the second fingerprint information is the same as a fingerprint of a finger corresponding to the first fingerprint information, and the second fingerprint information and the first fingerprint information have a same permission. When the second fingerprint information does not match the first fingerprint information, it indicates that a fingerprint of a finger corresponding to the second fingerprint information is different from a fingerprint of a finger corresponding to the first fingerprint information, and the second fingerprint information and the first fingerprint information have different permissions.

    [0030] It should be noted that, the first fingerprint information may be one piece of fingerprint information, or may include multiple pieces of fingerprint information. Verification against different first fingerprint information is performed to run different applications. One piece of first fingerprint information may correspond to one first application, or one piece of first fingerprint information may correspond to multiple first applications. For example, as shown in Table 1, verification against fingerprint information A needs to be performed to run an application a, verification against fingerprint information B needs to be performed to run an application b, verification against the fingerprint information B needs to be performed to run an application c, verification against fingerprint information C needs to be performed to run an application d.

    [0031] 104: When the second fingerprint information matches the first fingerprint information, display a first application in an application switch screen.

    [0032] When the second fingerprint information matches the first fingerprint information, the electronic device displays the first application in the application switch screen. Optionally, an application that can be directly run without needing to perform verification against the first fingerprint information may be further displayed at the same time. It should be noted that, a thumbnail of the first application, basic information of the first application, and/or the like may be displayed in the application switch screen. For example, an application A, an application B, an application C, and an application D are run in a mobile phone within a preset period of time, where the first application is the application A. When the first fingerprint information matches the second fingerprint information, the mobile phone displays a thumbnail of the application A and/or basic information of the application A in an application switch screen, or, the mobile phone displays the application A and applications other than the application A in the application switch screen, that is, displays the application A, the application B, the application C, and the application D in the application switch screen.

    [0033] For the application display method provided in this embodiment of the present invention, an electronic device can match second fingerprint information obtained from a touch operation and preset first fingerprint information of an owner user, where a first application can be run when verification against the first fingerprint information is performed, and the electronic device determines, according to a matching result, whether to display the first application; when the second fingerprint information matches the first fingerprint information, the electronic device determines that the touch operation has a permission to display the first application. In this way, a case in which an application that includes private information of an owner user of an electronic device may be displayed when the electronic device accepts a touch operation of any user is avoided, thereby avoiding a leakage of the private information of the owner user, and reducing an information security risk of the electronic device.

    [0034] Further, when the second fingerprint information matches the first fingerprint information, a manner for displaying the first application may be further detailed. On the basis of the solution shown in FIG. 1, this embodiment of the present invention further provides a specific solution of the application display method, to further detail a process of performing 104 shown in FIG. 1. 104 may be specifically implemented as 1041, and as shown in FIG. 2, includes:

    [0035] 1041: When the second fingerprint information matches the first fingerprint information, display a screen thumbnail of the first application and/or basic information of the first application in the application switch screen.

    [0036] When the second fingerprint information matches the first fingerprint information, the screen thumbnail of the first application and/or the basic information of the first application are/is displayed in the application switch screen. Specifically, the screen thumbnail of the first application may be a screen thumbnail of the first application at a previous exit, or a screen thumbnail of the first application at a preset moment. The basic information may specifically include information such as a name of the application, a developer of the application, a previous start time of the application, a previous exit time of the application, a size of memory occupied by the application, and network traffic used by the application.

    [0037] For the application display method provided in this embodiment of the present invention, an electronic device can match second fingerprint information obtained from a touch operation and preset first fingerprint information of an owner user, where a first application can be run when verification against the first fingerprint information is performed, and the electronic device determines, according to a matching result, whether to display the first application; when the second fingerprint information matches the first fingerprint information, the electronic device determines that the touch operation has a permission to display the first application. In this way, a case in which an application that includes private information of an owner user of an electronic device may be displayed when the electronic device accepts a touch operation of any user is avoided, thereby avoiding a leakage of the private information of the owner user, and reducing an information security risk of the electronic device.

    [0038] In addition, when the second fingerprint information does not match the first fingerprint information, the electronic device does not display the first application, or displays the first application on which special processing is performed, for example, the first application on which blurring processing is performed. On the basis of the solution shown in FIG. 1, this embodiment of the present invention further provides a specific solution of the application display method. As shown in FIG. 3, the method further includes:

    [0039] 105: When the first fingerprint information does not match the second fingerprint information, display, in the application switch screen, a second application and/or the first application on which blurring processing is performed.

    [0040] Verification against the first fingerprint information does not need to be performed for the electronic device to run the second application. That is, when receiving an instruction for instructing to run the second application, the electronic device may directly run the second application without needing to perform verification against the first fingerprint information. Whether the second application can be run is not related to the first fingerprint information.

    [0041] When the second fingerprint information does not match the first fingerprint information, the electronic device independently displays the second application in the application switch screen; or displays the second application and the first application on which blurring processing is performed, and specifically, displays the screen thumbnail and/or the basic information of the first application on which blurring processing is performed, so that a user currently using the electronic device cannot obtain, from content displayed by the electronic device in the application switch, information involving privacy of an owner user. For example, within a preset period of time, an application A, an application B, an application C, and an application D are run in a mobile phone, where the first application is the application A, and the second application is the application B, the application C or the application D. When the second fingerprint information does not match the first fingerprint information, the mobile phone displays thumbnails of the application B, the application C, and the application D and/or basic information of the application B, the application C, and the application D in the application switch screen, or the mobile phone displays, in the application switch screen, the application B, the application C, the application D, and the application A on which blurring processing is performed. Specifically, some sensitive information in the first application may be blurred, to obtain a blurred first application. For example, a sender of a short message service message and content of the short message service message that are displayed in a short message application are blurred, while a time when the short message service message is received may not be blurred; or the first application on which blurring processing is performed is displayed independently.

    [0042] For the application display method provided in this embodiment of the present invention, an electronic device can match second fingerprint information obtained from a touch operation and preset first fingerprint information of an owner user, where a first application can be run when verification against the first fingerprint information is performed, and the electronic device determines, according to a matching result, whether to display the first application; when the second fingerprint information matches the first fingerprint information, the electronic device determines that the touch operation has a permission to display the first application; and when the second fingerprint information does not match the first fingerprint information, the electronic device determines that the touch operation does not have a permission to display the first application, or that the touch operation does not have a permission to display the first application clearly. In this way, a case in which an application that includes private information of an owner user of an electronic device may be displayed when the electronic device accepts a touch operation of any user is avoided, thereby avoiding a leakage of the private information of the owner user, and reducing an information security risk of the electronic device.

    [0043] Further, on the basis of the solution shown in FIG. 3, when the electronic device obtains at least two pieces of fingerprint information from one touch operation, regarding how to determine the second fingerprint fingerprint information in the obtained at least two pieces of fingerprint information, this embodiment of the present invention further provides a specific solution of the application display method. This solution further details a process of performing 102 in the solution shown in FIG. 1. 102 may be specifically implemented as any one of 1021 to 1026, or 1027a and 1027b. 1021 to 1026 and 1027a and 1027b are specifically described below separately.

    [0044] As shown in FIG. 4a, 102 is specifically implemented as 1021:

    [0045] 1021: Use, as the second fingerprint information, both the at least two pieces of fingerprint information obtained from the touch operation.

    [0046] The electronic device may obtain one piece of fingerprint information or multiple pieces of fingerprint information in the touch operation. The electronic device can obtain the one or more pieces of fingerprint information from the touch operation by using a sensor. The electronic device may use all the one or more pieces of fingerprint information in the touch operation as the second fingerprint information. In a subsequent process of matching the first fingerprint information and the second fingerprint information, matching is performed between the first fingerprint information and each piece of second fingerprint information sequentially. When one piece of second fingerprint information matches the first fingerprint information, the electronic device determines that the first fingerprint information matches the second fingerprint information successfully.

    [0047] As shown in FIG. 4b, 102 is specifically implemented as 1022:

    [0048] 1022: Use, as the second fingerprint information, either of the at least two pieces of fingerprint information obtained from the touch operation.

    [0049] The electronic device arbitrarily selects one piece of fingerprint information of the multiple pieces of fingerprint information obtained from the touch operation as the second fingerprint information, and in a subsequent process, performs a procedure of matching the first fingerprint information and the second fingerprint information.

    [0050] As shown in FIG. 4c, 102 is specifically implemented as 1023:

    [0051] 1023: Use fingerprint information, obtained from the touch operation, of a recognized finger that earliest comes into contact with the electronic device as the second fingerprint information.

    [0052] The electronic device uses fingerprint information, obtained from the touch operation, of a recognized finger that first comes into contact with the electronic device as the second fingerprint information, and in a subsequent process, performs a procedure of matching the first fingerprint information and the second fingerprint information. Specifically, the electronic device may obtain, according to a fingerprint sensor built in the electronic device, a time of fingerprint information corresponding to each recognized finger, determine recognized fingerprint information that earliest comes into contact with the electronic device, and use the fingerprint information as the second fingerprint information.

    [0053] As shown in FIG. 4d, 102 is specifically implemented as 1024:

    [0054] 1024: Use fingerprint information, obtained from the touch operation, of a recognized finger that latest comes into contact with the electronic device as the second fingerprint information.

    [0055] The electronic device uses fingerprint information, obtained from the touch operation, of a recognized finger that latest comes into contact with the electronic device as the second fingerprint information, and in a subsequent process, performs a procedure of matching the first fingerprint information and the second fingerprint information. Specifically, the electronic device may obtain, according to a fingerprint sensor built in the electronic device, a time of fingerprint information corresponding to each recognized finger, determine fingerprint information of a recognized finger that latest comes into contact with the electronic device, and use the fingerprint information as the second fingerprint information.

    [0056] As shown in FIG. 4e, 102 is specifically implemented as 1025:

    [0057] 1025: Use fingerprint information, obtained from the touch operation, of a recognized finger that has a maximum area of contact with the electronic device as the second fingerprint information.

    [0058] The electronic device uses fingerprint information, obtained from the touch operation, of a recognized finger that has a maximum area of contact with the electronic device as the second fingerprint information, and in a subsequent process, performs a procedure of matching the first fingerprint information and the second fingerprint information. Specifically, the electronic device may obtain, according to a fingerprint sensor built in the electronic device, an area of contact between each recognized finger and the electronic device, determine fingerprint information of a recognized finger that has a maximum area of contact with the electronic device, and use the fingerprint information as the second fingerprint information.

    [0059] As shown in FIG. 4f, 102 is specifically implemented as 1026:

    [0060] 1026: Use fingerprint information, obtained from the touch operation, of a recognized finger that has a minimum area of contact with the electronic device as the second fingerprint information.

    [0061] The electronic device uses fingerprint information, obtained from the touch operation, of a recognized finger that has a minimum area of contact with the electronic device as the second fingerprint information, and in a subsequent process, performs a procedure of matching the first fingerprint information and the second fingerprint information. Specifically, the electronic device may obtain, according to a fingerprint sensor built in the electronic device, an area of contact between each recognized finger and the electronic device, determine fingerprint information of a recognized finger that has a minimum area of contact with the electronic device, and use the fingerprint information as the second fingerprint information.

    [0062] As shown in FIG. 4g, 102 is specifically implemented as 1027a to 1027d.

    [0063] 1027a: Obtain a contact moment, a contact area, and an integrity parameter that correspond to fingerprint information obtained from the touch operation.

    [0064] The contact moment is a moment when a finger corresponding to the fingerprint information comes into contact with the electronic device, the contact area is an area in which the finger corresponding to the fingerprint information comes into contact with the electronic device, and the integrity parameter represents an integral degree of the fingerprint information. For example, the fingerprint information may be specifically a fingerprint image. and the integrity parameter may be specifically a proportion of a size of an actually obtained fingerprint image to a size of a complete fingerprint image. For example, the size of the complete fingerprint image is 1 cm × 1 cm, and the size of the actually obtained fingerprint image is 0.7 cm × 0.9 cm. The proportion of the size of the actually obtained fingerprint image to the size of the complete fingerprint image is 63%, that is, the integrity parameter is 63%. However, the integrity parameter includes, but is not limited to, the foregoing specific form.

    [0065] 1027b: Determine the second fingerprint information according to the contact moment, the contact area, and the integrity parameter.

    [0066] The electronic device may comprehensively use the contact moment, the contact area, and the integrity parameter that correspond to the fingerprint information for reference, obtain a comprehensive determining result according to the contact moment, the contact area, and the integrity parameter, and determine the second fingerprint information according to the comprehensive determining result. It should be noted that, a specific method or algorithm for obtaining a comprehensive determining result according to the contact moment, the contact area, and the integrity parameter may be set according to a specific scenario and a specific requirement of a user, and is not limited herein. For example, the contact moment, the contact area, and the integrity parameter that correspond to the fingerprint information may be weighted, and the second fingerprint information is determined according to a weighting result. Specifically, the electronic device may set a first weight value corresponding to the contact moment, a second weight value corresponding to the contact area, and a third weight value corresponding to the integrity parameter. The electronic device multiplies the first weight value by the reciprocal of the contact moment to obtain a first product, multiplies the second weight value by the contact area to obtain a second product, and multiplies the third weight value by the integrity parameter to obtain a third product. The electronic device uses a sum of the first product, the second product, and the third product as a weighting result, and selects fingerprint information having a maximum weighting result as the second fingerprint information. Alternatively, the electronic device may set a first threshold, a second threshold, and a third threshold, and use fingerprint information whose contact moment is less than the first threshold, contact area is greater than the second threshold, and integrity parameter is greater than the third threshold as the second fingerprint information.

    [0067] It should be noted that, the coming into contact with the electronic device mentioned in the foregoing embodiments of the present invention refers to that the finger of the user comes into contact with a touch screen, on which a fingerprint sensor is disposed, of the electronic device, so that the second fingerprint information can be obtained from the touch operation of the user.

    [0068] It should be noted that, a manner for determining the second fingerprint information includes the foregoing manners and a combination of the foregoing manners. For example, fingerprint information, obtained from the touch operation, of a recognized finger that earliest comes into contact with the electronic device and that has a maximum area of contact with the electronic device is used as the second fingerprint information; or fingerprint information, obtained from the touch operation, of a recognized finger that latest comes into contact with the electronic device and that has a minimum area of contact with the electronic device is used as the second fingerprint information. However, the manner for determining the second fingerprint information is not limited to the foregoing manners and the combination of the foregoing manners, and any change or replacement that is readily conceived by a person skilled in the art shall fall within the protection scope of the present invention.

    [0069] For the application display method provided in this embodiment of the present invention, an electronic device can match second fingerprint information obtained from a touch operation and preset first fingerprint information of an owner user, where a first application can be run when verification against the first fingerprint information is performed, and the electronic device determines, according to a matching result, whether to display the first application; when the second fingerprint information matches the first fingerprint information, the electronic device determines that the touch operation has a permission to display the first application; and when the second fingerprint information does not match the first fingerprint information, the electronic device determines that the touch operation does not have a permission to display the first application, or that the touch operation does not have a permission to display the first application clearly. In this way, a case in which an application that includes private information of an owner user of an electronic device may be displayed when the electronic device accepts a touch operation of any user is avoided, thereby avoiding a leakage of the private information of the owner user, and reducing an information security risk of the electronic device. Meanwhile, the electronic device may flexibly use multiple manners to obtain the second fingerprint information, so that the electronic device has larger operation space, and the electronic device can meet more operation requirements.

    [0070] In addition, on the basis of the solution shown in FIG. 3, this embodiment of the present invention further provides a specific solution of the application display method. 106 and 107 are added before 101, to specifically describe how to set the first application. As shown in FIG. 5, the specific solution includes the following steps.

    [0071] 106: Receive a selection instruction of a user.

    [0072] The selection instruction is used to select at least one application, and in a subsequent process, the selected at least one application is used as the first application. The electronic device may also filter, according to a preset rule, applications stored in the electronic device, and select one or more applications of the applications as the first applications.

    [0073] 107: Select at least one application as the first application according to the selection instruction.

    [0074] The electronic device selects at least one application as the first application according to the selection instruction. For example, the electronic device receives the selection instruction of the user, and selects, in a list of applications that are installed in the electronic device, one or more applications as the first applications. For another example, during installation of an application in the electronic device, it is prompted whether to set the application as the first application, and it is determined, according to a selection instruction of the user, whether to select the application as the first application.

    [0075] It should be noted that, the first application may also be set as an application that needs to be logged into by using login information. The electronic device obtains login information of an application that has the login information, such as a user name and a user password, and establishes a correspondence between the login information and the first fingerprint information, for example, establishes a correspondence among a QQ number, a QQ password, and fingerprint information of the index finger of the left hand of a user, or establishes a correspondence among an Alipay user name, a password, and a fingerprint of the middle finger of the permission hand of a user. Therefore, the first fingerprint information and the login information have a same permission. The first application may be run when verification against either the login information or the first fingerprint information is performed. The electronic device may receive login information input by a user, so as to obtain login information of an application, or may receive login information, of an application, provided by a system screen of a mobile terminal, so as to establish a correspondence between the login information and the first fingerprint information. After the correspondence between the login information and the first fingerprint information is established, the correspondence among the first fingerprint information, the first application, and the login information of the first application may be stored in the electronic device in a table manner, to facilitate search by the electronic device. It should be noted that, before the login information corresponding to the first fingerprint information is used to log in to the first application, it may be further determined whether a function of using the login information corresponding to the first fingerprint information to log in to the first application is enabled. If the function is enabled, a procedure of using the login information corresponding to the first fingerprint information to log in to the first application is executed, or if the function is not enabled, the procedure is stopped. For example, as shown in Table 2, the table includes a function status, an application name, a login account, a login password, and first fingerprint information. The function status is used to indicate whether the function of using the login information corresponding to the first fingerprint information to log in to the first application is enabled. The mobile terminal may search, according to the table, for the correspondence among the first fingerprint information, the first application, and the login information of the first application.

    Function statusFirst application NameLogin accountLogin passwordFirst fingerprint information
    Enabled WeChat Usr1 Pwd1 FP1
    Disabled QQ Usr2 Pwd1 FP1
    Enabled Alipay Usr3 Pwd1 FP2


    [0076] For example, as shown in Table 2, when the second fingerprint information matches FP1, because the function of using the login information corresponding to the first fingerprint information to log in to the first application of WeChat is enabled and the function of using the login information corresponding to the first fingerprint information to log in to the first application of QQ is disabled, the electronic device displays a screenshot picture, a thumbnail, and/or basic information of WeChat.

    [0077] For the application display method provided in this embodiment of the present invention, an electronic device can match second fingerprint information obtained from a touch operation and preset first fingerprint information of an owner user, where a first application can be run when verification against the first fingerprint information is performed, and the electronic device determines, according to a matching result, whether to display the first application; when the second fingerprint information matches the first fingerprint information, the electronic device determines that the touch operation has a permission to display the first application; and when the second fingerprint information does not match the first fingerprint information, the electronic device determines that the touch operation does not have a permission to display the first application, or that the touch operation does not have a permission to display the first application clearly. In this way, a case in which an application that includes private information of an owner user of an electronic device may be displayed when the electronic device accepts a touch operation of any user is avoided, thereby avoiding a leakage of the private information of the owner user, and reducing an information security risk of the electronic device. Moreover, a user may set the first application in a user-defining manner, so that the user conveniently sets and manages an application related to private information in the electronic device.

    [0078] An embodiment of the present invention provides a picture display method, applied to an electronic device. First fingerprint information is stored in the electronic device, a first picture and a second picture are stored in the electronic device, and the electronic device currently displays the first picture. Verification against the first fingerprint information needs to be performed to perform an operation of viewing the second picture. For example, when fingerprint information A used during verification is not the first fingerprint information, the fingerprint information A does not have a permission to view the second picture. It should be noted that, there may be one or more second pictures. As shown in FIG. 6, the method includes the following steps.

    [0079] 201: Receive a touch operation.

    [0080] The electronic device currently displays the first picture. The touch operation is used to request to display the second picture. The touch operation triggers an action of switching display of the first picture to display of the second picture. The second picture is a picture located before or after the first picture in a direction consistent with a switching direction indicated by the foregoing touch operation. However, it should be noted that, verification against the first fingerprint information needs to be performed to perform an operation of viewing the second picture.

    [0081] In this embodiment of the present invention, the electronic device has a touch screen, and a fingerprint sensor is disposed on the touch screen, and can obtain fingerprint information from a touch operation of a user on the touch screen of the electronic device. In this embodiment, the touch operation instructs to switch the currently displayed first picture to the second picture. For example, the touch operation may be a gesture operation of a finger flicking to the left or to the permission on the touch screen, or may be a gesture operation of a finger flicking clockwise or counterclockwise on the touch screen, or may be a gesture operation of a finger flicking upward or downward on the touch screen, or may be an operation of a finger tapping an icon or a button used to switch an image. A specific implementation manner of the touch operation is not limited herein.

    [0082] 202: Obtain second fingerprint information from the touch operation.

    [0083] The second fingerprint information is obtained from the touch operation. The second fingerprint information may be one piece of fingerprint information, or may be multiple pieces of fingerprint information. Specific content of obtaining the second fingerprint information from the touch operation is described in subsequent embodiments.

    [0084] 203: Match the second fingerprint information and first fingerprint information.

    [0085] The electronic device matches the second fingerprint information obtained from the touch operation and the first fingerprint information prestored in the electronic device. When the second fingerprint information matches the first fingerprint information, it indicates that a fingerprint of a finger corresponding to the second fingerprint information is the same as a fingerprint of a finger corresponding to the first fingerprint information, and the second fingerprint information and the first fingerprint information have a same permission. When the second fingerprint information does not match the first fingerprint information, it indicates that a fingerprint of a finger corresponding to the second fingerprint information is different from a fingerprint of a finger corresponding to the first fingerprint information, and the second fingerprint information and the first fingerprint information have different permissions.

    [0086] It should be noted that, the first fingerprint information may be one piece of fingerprint information, or may include multiple pieces of fingerprint information. Verification against different first fingerprint information is performed, so that different pictures can be viewed. One piece of first fingerprint information may correspond to one second picture, or one piece of first fingerprint information may correspond to multiple second pictures. For example, as shown in Table 3, verification against fingerprint information A needs to be performed to view a picture a, verification against fingerprint information B needs to be performed to view a picture b, verification against the fingerprint information B needs to be performed to view a picture c, and verification against fingerprint information C needs to be performed to view a picture d.
    Table 3

    Fingerprint information A Picture a
    Fingerprint information B Picture b, picture c
    Fingerprint information C Picture d


    [0087] 204: When the second fingerprint information matches the first fingerprint information, display the second picture.

    [0088] When the second fingerprint information matches the first fingerprint information, the electronic device displays the second picture. Optionally, a picture that can be directly viewed without needing to perform verification against the first fingerprint information may be further displayed at the same time. It should be noted that, the electronic device may display the second picture, basic information of the second picture, and/or the like. For example, a mobile phone currently displays a picture A. According to a switching order, several pictures arranged after the picture A are a picture B and a picture C. The second picture is the picture B. That is, verification against the first fingerprint information needs to be performed to view the picture B. The mobile phone receives a touch operation of a user to request to view a next picture of the picture A. When the second fingerprint information matches the first fingerprint information, the mobile phone displays the picture B.

    [0089] In addition, a manner for displaying the second picture is also not limited. For example, the second picture may completely cover the currently displayed first picture, or the second picture may partially cover the currently displayed first picture, or the second picture may not overlap the currently displayed first picture, and the second picture and the first picture are displayed on the electronic device by using a same size. When the second fingerprint information obtained from the touch operation matches the first fingerprint information, an order relationship among the first picture and the second pictures may also be omitted, and the mobile terminal displays any second picture. For example, the first picture is the picture A, and according to an order, second pictures located after the picture A in order are sequentially the picture B, the picture C, and the picture D. When the first fingerprint information matches the second fingerprint information, the electronic device may display any one of the picture B, the picture C, or the picture D.

    [0090] For the picture display method provided in this embodiment of the present invention, in a scenario in which an electronic device can currently display a first picture, the electronic device matches second fingerprint information in a touch operation of a user and preset first fingerprint information of an owner user, where a second picture can be displayed when verification against the first fingerprint information is performed, and the electronic device determines, according to a matching result, whether to display the second picture; when the second fingerprint information matches the first fingerprint information, the electronic device determines that the touch operation has a permission to switch display of the first picture to display of the second picture. In this way, a case in which a picture that includes private information of an owner user of an electronic device may be displayed when the electronic device accepts a touch operation of any user is avoided, thereby avoiding a leakage of the private information of the owner user, and reducing an information security risk of the electronic device.

    [0091] Further, when the second fingerprint information matches the first fingerprint information, the manner for displaying the second picture may be further detailed. On the basis of the solution shown in FIG. 1, this embodiment of the present invention further provides a specific solution of the picture display method, to further detail a process of performing 204 shown in FIG. 6. 204 may be specifically implemented as 2041, and as shown in FIG. 7, includes:

    [0092] 2041: When the second fingerprint information matches the first fingerprint information, display the second picture and/or basic information of the second picture.

    [0093] When the second fingerprint information matches the first fingerprint information, the electronic device displays the second picture and/or basic information of the second picture. Specifically, the basic information may include information such as a name of the picture, a time when the picture is photographed, and a size of memory occupied by the picture.

    [0094] For the picture display method provided in this embodiment of the present invention, in a scenario in which an electronic device can currently display a first picture, the electronic device matches second fingerprint information in a touch operation of a user and preset first fingerprint information of an owner user, where a second picture can be displayed when verification against the first fingerprint information is performed, and the electronic device determines, according to a matching result, whether to display the second picture; when the second fingerprint information matches the first fingerprint information, the electronic device determines that the touch operation has a permission to switch display of the first picture to display of the second picture. In this way, a case in which a picture that includes private information of an owner user of an electronic device may be displayed when the electronic device accepts a touch operation of any user is avoided, thereby avoiding a leakage of the private information of the owner user, and reducing an information security risk of the electronic device.

    [0095] In addition, when the second fingerprint information does not match the first fingerprint information, the electronic device does not display the second picture, or displays the second picture on which special processing is performed, for example, the second picture on which blurring processing is performed. On the basis of the solution shown in FIG. 6, this embodiment of the present invention further provides a specific solution of the picture display method. As shown in FIG. 8, the method further includes:

    [0096] 205: When the second fingerprint information does not match the first fingerprint information, display a third picture and/or the second picture on which blurring processing is performed.

    [0097] Verification against the first fingerprint information does not need to be performed to perform an operation of viewing the third picture on the electronic device. That is, when receiving an instruction for instructing to view the third picture, the electronic device may directly run the third picture, and verification against the first fingerprint information does need to be performed. Whether the third picture can be viewed is not related to the first fingerprint information.

    [0098] When the second fingerprint information does not match the first fingerprint information, the electronic device independently displays the third picture; or displays the third picture and the second picture on which blurring processing is performed, so that a user currently using the electronic device cannot obtain, from content displayed by the electronic device, information involving privacy of an owner user. For example, a picture A, a picture B, a picture C, and a picture D are stored in a mobile phone, where the first picture is the picture A, and the second picture is picture B, the third picture is the picture C and the picture D. When the first fingerprint information does not match the second fingerprint information, the mobile phone displays the picture C or the picture D, and/or basic information of the picture C or the picture D, or, the mobile phone displays the picture A on which blurring processing is performed.

    [0099] For the picture display method provided in this embodiment of the present invention, in a scenario in which an electronic device can currently display a first picture, the electronic device matches second fingerprint information obtained from a touch operation of a user and preset first fingerprint information of an owner user, where a second picture can be displayed when verification against the first fingerprint information is performed, and the electronic device determines, according to a matching result, whether to display the second picture; when the second fingerprint information matches the first fingerprint information, the electronic device determines that the touch operation has a permission to switch display of the first picture to display of the second picture, and when the second fingerprint information does not match the first fingerprint information, the electronic device determines that the touch operation does not have a permission to switch display of the first picture to display of the second picture. In this way, a case in which a picture that includes private information of an owner user of an electronic device may be displayed when the electronic device accepts a touch operation of any user is avoided, thereby avoiding a leakage of the private information of the owner user, and reducing an information security risk of the electronic device.

    [0100] Further, on the basis of the solution shown in FIG. 8, when the electronic device obtains at least two pieces of fingerprint information from one touch operation, regarding how to determine the second fingerprint fingerprint information in the obtained at least two pieces of fingerprint information, this embodiment of the present invention further provides a specific solution of the picture display method. This solution further details a process of performing 202 in the solution shown in FIG. 6. 202 may be specifically implemented as any one of 2021 to 2026, or 2027a and 2027b. 2021 to 2026 and 2027a and 2027b are specifically described below separately.

    [0101] As shown in FIG. 9a, 202 is specifically implemented as 2021:

    [0102] 2021: Use, as the second fingerprint information, both the at least two pieces of fingerprint information obtained from the touch operation.

    [0103] The electronic device may obtain one piece of fingerprint information or multiple pieces of fingerprint information in the touch operation. The electronic device can obtain the one or more pieces of fingerprint information from the touch operation by using a sensor. The electronic device may use all the one or more pieces of fingerprint information in the touch operation as the second fingerprint information. In a subsequent process of matching the first fingerprint information and the second fingerprint information, matching is performed between the first fingerprint information and each piece of second fingerprint information sequentially. When one piece of second fingerprint information matches the first fingerprint information, the electronic device determines that the first fingerprint information matches the second fingerprint information successfully.

    [0104] As shown in FIG. 9b, 202 is specifically implemented as 2022:

    [0105] 2022: Use, as the second fingerprint information, either of the at least two pieces of fingerprint information obtained from the touch operation.

    [0106] The electronic device arbitrarily selects one piece of fingerprint information of the multiple pieces of fingerprint information obtained from the touch operation as the second fingerprint information, and in a subsequent process, performs a procedure of matching the first fingerprint information and the second fingerprint information.

    [0107] As shown in FIG. 9c, 202 is specifically implemented as 2023:

    [0108] 2023: Use fingerprint information, obtained from the touch operation, of a recognized finger that earliest comes into contact with the electronic device as the second fingerprint information.

    [0109] The electronic device uses fingerprint information, obtained from the touch operation, of a recognized finger that first comes into contact with the electronic device as the second fingerprint information, and in a subsequent process, performs a procedure of matching the first fingerprint information and the second fingerprint information. Specifically, the electronic device may obtain, according to a fingerprint sensor built in the electronic device, a time of fingerprint information corresponding to each recognized finger, determine recognized fingerprint information that earliest comes into contact with the electronic device, and use the fingerprint information as the second fingerprint information.

Specifically, the electronic device may obtain, according to a fingerprint sensor built in the electronic device, a time of fingerprint information corresponding to each recognized finger, determine fingerprint information of a recognized finger that latest comes into contact with the electronic device, and use the fingerprint information as the second fingerprint information.

    [0113] As shown in FIG. 9e, 202 is specifically implemented as 2025:

    [0114] 2025: Use fingerprint information, obtained from the touch operation, of a recognized finger that has a maximum area of contact with the electronic device as the second fingerprint information.

    [0115] The electronic device uses fingerprint information, obtained from the touch operation, of a recognized finger that has a maximum area of contact with the electronic device as the second fingerprint information, and in a subsequent process, performs a procedure of matching the first fingerprint information and the second fingerprint information. Specifically, the electronic device may obtain, according to a fingerprint sensor built in the electronic device, an area of contact between each recognized finger and the electronic device, determine fingerprint information of a recognized finger that has a maximum area of contact with the electronic device, and use the fingerprint information as the second fingerprint information.

    [0116] As shown in FIG. 9f, 202 is specifically implemented as 2026:

    [0117] 2026: Use fingerprint information, obtained from the touch operation, of a recognized finger that has a minimum area of contact with the electronic device as the second fingerprint information.

    [0118] The electronic device uses fingerprint information, obtained from the touch operation, of a recognized finger that has a minimum area of contact with the electronic device as the second fingerprint information, and in a subsequent process, performs a procedure of matching the first fingerprint information and the second fingerprint information. Specifically, the electronic device may obtain, according to a fingerprint sensor built in the electronic device, an area of contact between each recognized finger and the electronic device, determine fingerprint information of a recognized finger that has a minimum area of contact with the electronic device, and use the fingerprint information as the second fingerprint information.

    [0119] As shown in FIG. 9g, 202 is specifically implemented as 2027a and 2027b:

    [0120] 2027a: Obtain a contact moment, a contact area, and an integrity parameter that correspond to fingerprint information obtained from the touch operation.

    [0121] The contact moment is a moment when a finger corresponding to the fingerprint information comes into contact with the electronic device, the contact area is an area in which the finger corresponding to the fingerprint information comes into contact with the electronic device, and the integrity parameter represents an integral degree of the fingerprint information. For a specific form of the integrity parameter, refer to the description of step 1027a.

    [0122] 2027b: Determine the second fingerprint information according to the contact moment, the contact area, and the integrity parameter.

    [0123] For a specific description, refer to step 1027b, and details are no longer described herein.

    [0124] It should be noted that, the coming into contact with the electronic device mentioned in the foregoing embodiments of the present invention refers to that the finger of the user comes into contact with a touch screen, on which a fingerprint sensor is disposed, of the electronic device, so that the second fingerprint information can be obtained from the touch operation of the user.

    [0125] It should be noted that, a manner for determining the second fingerprint information includes the foregoing manners and a combination of the foregoing manners. For example, fingerprint information, obtained from the touch operation, of a recognized finger that earliest comes into contact with the electronic device and that has a maximum area of contact with the electronic device is used as the second fingerprint information; or fingerprint information, obtained from the touch operation, of a recognized finger that latest comes into contact with the electronic device and that has a minimum area of contact with the electronic device is used as the second fingerprint information. However, the manner for determining the second fingerprint information is not limited to the foregoing manners and the combination of the foregoing manners, and any change or replacement that is readily conceived by a person skilled in the art shall fall within the protection scope of the present invention.

    [0126] For the picture display method provided in this embodiment of the present invention, in a scenario in which an electronic device can currently display a first picture, the electronic device matches second fingerprint information obtained from a touch operation and preset first fingerprint information of an owner user, where a second picture can be displayed when verification against the first fingerprint information is performed, and the electronic device determines, according to a matching result, whether to display the second picture; when the second fingerprint information matches the first fingerprint information, the electronic device determines that the touch operation has a permission to switch display of the first picture to display of the second picture, and when the second fingerprint information does not match the first fingerprint information, the electronic device determines that the touch operation does not have a permission to switch display of the first picture to display of the second picture. In this way, a case in which a picture that includes private information of an owner user of an electronic device may be displayed when the electronic device accepts a touch operation of any user is avoided, thereby avoiding a leakage of the private information of the owner user, and reducing an information security risk of the electronic device. Meanwhile, the electronic device may flexibly use multiple manners to obtain the second fingerprint information, so that the electronic device has larger operation space, and the electronic device can meet more operation requirements.

    [0127] In addition, on the basis of the solution shown in FIG. 8, this embodiment of the present invention further provides a specific solution of the picture display method. 206 and 207 or 208 are added before 201, to specifically describe how to set the second picture. As shown in FIG. 10, the specific solution includes the following steps.

    [0128] 206: Receive a selection instruction of a user.

    [0129] The selection instruction is used to select at least one picture, and in a subsequent procedure, the selected picture is used as the second picture. The electronic device may also filter, according to a preset rule, pictures stored in the electronic device, and select one or more pictures of the pictures as the second pictures.

    [0130] 207: Select at least one picture as the second picture according to the selection instruction.

    [0131] The electronic device selects at least one picture as the second picture according to the selection instruction. For example, the electronic device receives the selection instruction of the user, and selects, in a list of pictures in the electronic device, one or more pictures as the second pictures. For another example, when the electronic device photographs a photo or imports a picture, it is prompted whether to set the picture as the second picture, and according to a selection instruction of the user, it is determined whether to select the picture as the second picture.

    [0132] 208: Set a target photographing function icon, and use, a picture obtained through photographing by using the target photographing function icon, as the second picture.

    [0133] The electronic device may further set a target photographing function icon, and use a picture, obtained through photographing by using the target photographing function icon, as the second picture. A picture photographed by using another function is used as the third picture.

    [0134] For the picture display method provided in this embodiment of the present invention, in a scenario in which an electronic device can currently display a first picture, the electronic device matches second fingerprint information obtained from a touch operation and preset first fingerprint information of an owner user, where a second picture can be displayed when verification against the first fingerprint information is performed, and the electronic device determines, according to a matching result, whether to display the second picture; when the second fingerprint information matches the first fingerprint information, the electronic device determines that the touch operation has a permission to switch display of the first picture to display of the second picture, and when the second fingerprint information does not match the first fingerprint information, the electronic device determines that the touch operation does not have a permission to switch display of the first picture to display of the second picture. In this way, a case in which a picture that includes private information of an owner user of an electronic device may be displayed when the electronic device accepts a touch operation of any user is avoided, thereby avoiding a leakage of the private information of the owner user, and reducing an information security risk of the electronic device. Moreover, a user may set the second picture in a user-defining manner, so that the user conveniently sets and manages a picture related to private information in the electronic device.

    [0135] In addition to the foregoing scenario of switching the first picture to the second picture, the picture display method in the present invention is also applicable to a scenario of opening an image library or an album and simultaneously displaying multiple pictures on an electronic device. Specifically, multiple pictures are stored in the electronic device. The multiple pictures include a private picture, and first fingerprint information is stored in the electronic device. Verification against the first fingerprint information needs to be performed to view the private picture. The electronic device receives a touch operation. The touch operation is used to view multiple pictures. The electronic device obtains second fingerprint information from the touch operation, and matches the second fingerprint information and the first fingerprint information. When the second fingerprint information matches the first fingerprint information, the electronic device displays the private picture. When the second fingerprint information does not match the first fingerprint information, the electronic device displays a non-private picture, or displays a non-private picture and a private picture on which blurring processing is performed. Therefore, when an image library or album is entered, a picture including private information of an owner user can also be protected, thereby avoiding a leakage of private information of an owner user, and reducing an information security risk of the electronic device.

    [0136] An embodiment of the present invention provides an application display apparatus 300. First fingerprint information is stored in the apparatus 300, a first application is installed in the apparatus 300, and verification against the first fingerprint information needs to be performed to run the first application.

In this way, a case in which an application that includes private information of an owner user of the apparatus may be displayed when the apparatus accepts a touch operation of any user is avoided, thereby avoiding a leakage of the private information of the owner user, and reducing an information security risk of the apparatus.

    [0143] In addition, as shown in FIG. 12, the apparatus 300 further includes:
    a second display module 305, configured to: when the second fingerprint information does not match the first fingerprint information, display, in the application switch screen, a second application and/or the first application on which blurring processing is performed.

In this way, a case in which an application that includes private information of an owner user of the apparatus may be displayed when the apparatus accepts a touch operation of any user is avoided, thereby avoiding a leakage of the private information of the owner user, and reducing an information security risk of the apparatus.

    [0154] The seventh obtaining submodule 3027 is configured to obtain a contact moment, a contact area, and an integrity parameter that correspond to fingerprint information obtained from the touch operation.

    [0155] The contact moment is a moment when a finger corresponding to the fingerprint information comes into contact with the electronic device, the contact area is an area in which the finger corresponding to the fingerprint information comes into contact with the electronic device, and the integrity parameter represents an integral degree of the fingerprint information.

    [0156] The determining submodule 3028 is configured to determine the second fingerprint information according to the contact moment, the contact area, and the integrity parameter.

Meanwhile, the apparatus may flexibly use multiple manners to obtain the second fingerprint information, so that the apparatus has larger operation space, and the apparatus can meet more operation requirements.

    [0179] An embodiment of the present invention provides an electronic device 500. As shown in FIG. 19, the electronic device 500 includes at least one processing unit 501, for example, a CPU, at least one communications unit 502 or another input unit 503, a storage unit 504, an output unit 505, at least one communications bus 506, and a power supply 507. The communications bus is configured to implement communication between the foregoing components. The structure of the electronic device 500 shown in FIG. 19 does not constitute a limitation on the present invention, and the structure may be a line-shaped structure, or may be a star-shaped structure, or may include more or fewer members than those shown in FIG. 19, or may combine some members, or may have a different arrangement of members.

    [0180] The processing unit 501 is a control center of the electronic device 500, connects various parts of the entire electronic device 500 by using various screens and lines, and runs or executes a software program and/or module stored in the storage unit 504 and invokes data stored in the storage unit 504 to execute various functions of the electronic device 500 and/or process data. The processor 501 may include an integrated circuit (Integrated Circuit, IC for short), for example, may include a single packaged IC, or may include multiple successive packaged ICs that have same functions or different functions. For example, the processing unit 501 may include only a central processing unit (Central Processing Unit, CPU for short), or may be a combination of a CPU, a digital signal processor (digital signal processor, DSP for short), a graphic processing unit (Graphic Processing Unit, GPU for short), and a control chip (for example, a baseband chip) that is in the communications unit 502. In an implementation manner of the present invention, the CPU may be a single computing core or may include multiple computing cores.

    [0181] The input unit 503 is configured to implement interaction between a user and the electronic device 500 and/or input information to the electronic device 500. For example, an input unit 503 may receive number or character information input by the user, to generate signal input related to a user setting or function control. In a specific implementation manner of the present invention, the input unit 503 may be a touch panel, or may be another human-computer interaction screen such as a physical input key or a microphone, or may be another external information capturing apparatus such as a camera. The touch panel, which is also referred to as a touchscreen or a touch screen, can collect an operation action of the user on or near the touch panel, for example, an operation action of the user on the touch panel or at a position near the touch panel by using any suitable object or accessory such as a finger or a stylus, and drive a corresponding connection apparatus according to a preset program. Optionally, the touch panel may include two parts: a touch detection apparatus and a touch controller. The touch detection apparatus detects a touch operation of a user, converts the detected touch operation into an electrical signal, and transmits the electrical signal to the touch controller. The touch controller receives the electrical signal from the touch detection apparatus, converts the electrical signal into coordinates of a touch point, and sends the coordinates to a processing unit 501. The touch controller may further receive and execute a command sent by the processing unit 501. In addition, the touch panel may be a resistive, capacitive, infrared (Infrared), or surface acoustic wave touch panel. In another implementation manner of the present invention, the physical input key used by the input unit 503 may include, but is not limited to, one or more of a physical keyboard, a functional key (such as a volume control key or a switch key), a trackball, a mouse, a joystick, and the like. The input unit 503 in a microphone form may collect speech input by a user or from an environment and converts the speech into a command that is in an electrical signal form and that can be executed by the processing unit 501. The input unit 503 in a fingerprint sensor form may collect body surface print information (including fingerprint information, palm print information, and the like) of a portion at which the user comes into contact with the fingerprint sensor, and convert the body surface print information into a command that is in an electrical signal form and that can be executed by the processing unit 501. The fingerprint sensor may be a capacitive fingerprint sensor, an ultrasonic fingerprint sensor, an optical fingerprint sensor, a temperature fingerprint sensor, or the like, or may be a swipe-type fingerprint sensor or a pressure-sensitive fingerprint sensor. The input unit 503 in an iris sensor form may collect iris information of a user, and convert the iris information into a command that is in an electrical signal form and that can be executed by the processing unit 501. For the iris sensor, the foregoing camera may be reused by using a manner for adding a light filter, or a dedicated iris sensor may be separately added.

    [0182] The output unit 505 may include, but is not limited to, an image output unit, a sound output unit, and a touch sensing output unit. The image output unit is configured to output text, a picture, and/or a video. The image output unit may include a display panel, for example, a display panel that is configured by using a form such as an LCD (Liquid Crystal Display, liquid crystal display), an OLED (Organic Light-Emitting Diode, organic light-emitting diode), or a field emission display (field emission display, FED for short). Alternatively, the image output unit may include a reflective display, such as an electrophoretic (electrophoretic) display, or a display using a technology of interferometric modulation of light (Interferometric Modulation of Light). The image output unit may include a single display or multiple displays of different sizes. In a specific implementation manner of the present invention, the touch panel used by the input unit 505 may also be used as a display panel of the output unit at the same time. For example, after detecting a gesture operation of a touch on the touch panel or near the touch panel, the touch panel transfers the gesture operation to the processing unit 501 to determine a type of a touch event. Subsequently, the processing unit 501 provides a corresponding visual output on the display panel according to the type of the touch event. Although in FIG. 18, the input unit 503 and the output unit 505 are two independent members to implement input and output functions of the electronic device 500, in some embodiments, the touch panel and the display panel may be integrated to implement the input and output functions of the electronic device 500. For example, the image output unit may display various graphical user screens (Graphical User Screen, GUI for short) as virtual control components, which include but are not limited to a window, a scroll, an icon, and a scrapbook, so that a user performs an operation in a touch manner. In a specific implementation manner of the present invention, the image output unit includes a filter and an amplifier, which are configured to perform filtering and amplification on a video output by the processing unit 501. The audio output unit includes a digital analog converter, configured to convert, from a digital format into an analog format, an audio signal output by the processing unit 501.

    [0183] The communications unit 502 is configured to establish a communications channel, so that the electronic device 500 is connected to a communications peer end by using the communications channel, and exchanges data with the communications peer end by using the communications channel. The communications unit may include a wireless communications module such as a wireless local area network (Wireless Local Area Network, wireless LAN for short) module, a Bluetooth module, a near field wireless communication (Near Field Communication, NFC for short) module, or a baseband (Base Band) module, and a wired communications module such as an Ethernet module, a universal serial bus (Universal Serial Bus, USB for short) module, or a lightning screen (Lightning, currently used by Apple in a device such as iPhone5/5s/5c) module. The communications module is configured to perform communication between components in a mobile terminal and the communications peer end, and may support direct memory access (Direct Memory Access).

    [0184] In different implementation manners of the present invention, various communications modules in the communications unit 502 generally appear in a form of an integrated circuit chip (Integrated Circuit Chip), and may be combined selectively, but do not need to include all communications modules. For example, the communications unit 502 may include only a baseband chip, a radio frequency chip, and a corresponding antenna to provide a communication function in a cellular communications system. The electronic device 500 may be connected to a cellular network (Cellular Network) or the Internet (Internet) by means of a wireless communication connection, for example, wireless local area network access or WCDMA access, established by the communications unit 502. In some optional implementation manners of the present invention, the communications module, for example, a baseband module in the communications unit 502 may be integrated in the processing unit 501, typically, for example, an APQ+MDM series platform provided by the Qualcomm (Qualcomm) company. A radio frequency circuit is configured to receive and send a signal during an information receiving and sending process or during a call. For example, after downlink information of a base station is received, the downlink information is sent to the processing unit 501 for processing; in addition, uplink-related data is sent to the base station. Generally, the radio frequency circuit includes a well known circuit configured to execute these functions, and includes, but is not limited to, an antenna system, a radio frequency transceiver, one or more amplifiers, a tuner, one or more oscillators, a digital signal processor, a codec (Codec) chipset, a subscriber identity module (SIM) card, a memory, and the like.
