Vivo beats Apple and Samsung to the top smartphone feature of 2018

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

By launching the next smartphone in CES, Vivo becomes the first brand ever to launch a consumer smartphone with fingerprint scanner beneath the display panel.

Many top-leading smartphone companies have been rumoured to make an innovative breakthrough movement with a fingerprint scanner mounted under the display.

Synaptics has said the sensor takes just 0.7-seconds to authenticate the fingerprint and that seems to have played out in various hands-on tests at CES.

The first smartphone with an in-display fingerprint sensor is here.

Currently, the in-display fingerprint scanner is already in mass production and the availability will be announced in early 2018. Vivo is relying on the optical fingerprint sensor from Synaptics, which had announced this technology towards the end of 2017. The new model may come with thinner bezels as the fingerprint sensor will move under the display.

With the Home button sacrificed for a full-frontal display, Apple reportedly sought to integrate the sensor within the screen itself. However, Synaptics' component is said to work with other devices like iPhone, LG, and Samsung.

Even with the introduction of face recognition security, most users still prefer using the fingerprint recognition as it's the standard biometric security for smartphones. In all likelihood, Vivo will opt for an under display fingerprint sensor for the bottom half of the display. The technology aims to offer better and more convenient fingerprint authentication experience in 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.

Vivo had showcased the concept device of the inbuilt smartphone fingerprint sensor under display at Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Shanghai past year.

This is the first time a smartphone is having the fingerprint scanner on the display screen. The latest fingerprint scanning technology will enable users to unlock their smartphone through one-touch fingerprint scanning directly on the smartphone display.
