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

While Samsung was previously expected to be the first brand to launch under display fingerprint sensors this year with the Galaxy S9-series, it looks like Vivo has beaten them all to the punch, unless you count the Doogee V that is. The in-display fingerprint technology unveiled by Synaptics only works with OLED displays, and indeed, the handset will feature an AMOLED display. He also added that the phone with the under-display fingerprint sensor is ready for mass production and will be announced in "early 2018".

The mechanics of setting up your fingerprint on the phone and then using it to unlock the device and do things like authenticate payments are the same as with a traditional fingerprint sensor.

The phone is developed with thin-bezel and display offers 18:9 aspect ratio. This fingerprint sensor only requires one touch to access the smartphone.

As the biometric scanner can be fitted under the screen, we can expect a number of smartphones ditching the rear-mounted fingerprint scanners for a more comfortable user experience. Apple however, completely removed the fingerprint scanner known as TouchID on iOS devices and is now relying on face recognition with the new FaceID feature.


Vivo is now showcasing the next level of this technology at CES 2018.

CES 2018 has not been about smartphones much this time around, but that isn't stopping Vivo from making its presence felt. In other words, vivo has deliberately solved the industry's challenge of providing a better and convenient security authentication experience for future smartphones.

"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", said Alex Feng, Senior Vice President, Vivo. This suggests that the in-display fingerprint sensor will be fully functional in the smartphone. "Vivo says that this is world's first ready-to-produce smartphone with an in-display fingerprint scanner, and just to be clear, on the inside lies Synaptics" in-display fingerprint scanner, 'Clear ID'.
