Vivo Just Unveiled World's First Phone With in-display Fingerprint Sensor

Synaptics unveiled the first in-display fingerprint scanner late a year ago and the company also revealed that the first phone to sport the new technology would would be launched at CES 2018, in Las Vegas. This fingerprint sensor only requires one touch to access the smartphone. The company is set to take the stage on January 10 to unveil a smartphone that will feature under display fingerprint sensor, a technology that has been highly expected for a while now.

The Verge, which was able to go hands-on with the Vivo's in-display fingerprint sensor, reported that the process of setting up a fingerprint and using it unlock the device is the same as with conventional sensors. The company in December announced that it entered mass manufacturing with its optical in-display fingerprint sensors, called Clear ID. These fingerprint sensors can be embedded inside the display and will be scratch-proof as well waterproof. The in-sensor fingerprint sensor will be placed between the mainboard and the OLED panel. The new model may come with thinner bezels as the fingerprint sensor will move under the display. While rear-mounted fingerprint scanners are all well and good, there are people who just like it on the front of the smartphone.

The Chinese smartphone maker showcased the latest technology at CES 2018.

"With our efforts in extensive consumer research and long-term R&D investment, Vivo is well positioned to pioneer the development of fingerprint scanning technology". In other words, vivo has deliberately solved the industry's challenge of providing a better and convenient security authentication experience for future smartphones.

"Today's showcase of a ready-to-produce in-display fingerprint scanning smartphone with an optical fingerprint sensor is a step forward in bringing consumers this futuristic mobile experience". Vivo says it will announce the availability of its first in-display fingerprint scanning smartphone in early 21018. The upcoming smartphone in all likelihood will feature in-screen fingerprint sensor from Synaptics.
