Vivo to soon launch a phone with under-display fingerprint sensor

Vivo had showcased the concept device of the inbuilt smartphone fingerprint sensor under display at Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Shanghai past year. This may be true as this phone was earlier spotted online with an under-display fingerprint sensor. Vivo posted a teaser on Twitter suggesting it will unveil the first phone with in-display fingerprint sensor, which will likely be provided by Synaptics.

With the Home button sacrificed for a full-frontal display, Apple reportedly sought to integrate the sensor within the screen itself.

Vivo's first smartphone with in-display fingerprint scanner is said to launch in the first half of this year. These fingerprint sensors can be embedded inside the display and will be scratch-proof as well waterproof. This biometric sensor will be capable of recognizing fingerprint impression by touching on an OLED panel.

At CES 2018, Vivo shows the world the first ready-to-produce smartphone featuring in-display fingerprint scanning technology, demonstrating its continued commitment to bring an extraordinary user experience.

In July 2017, the China-based company teamed up with Qualcomm to demo an ultrasonic in-display fingerprint sensor - one of the first commercial examples of in-display fingerprint scanning. The phone is also said to sport iPhone X-esque notch on the top. It is also worth mentioning that a fingerprint scanner cannot offer the same level of security of a well-made 3D facial recognition technology or iris scanner, which can recognize more unique elements in the face of the user.

We are pretty excited about this new tech and would certainly love to see more and more smartphones with in-display fingerprint scanning technology making it to the market this year.
