Vivo is the first Smartphone Manufacturer to use Under-Display Fingerprint Scanner

The users just have to press the "fingerprint graphic" on the screen with their finger to perform the unlocking. In other words, vivo has deliberately solved the industry's challenge of providing a better and convenient security authentication experience for future smartphones. The company has teased a phone with minimal bezels and an under-display fingerprint sensor. While tech giants were said to have been exploring this technology, Vivo took the lead and gave a sneak peak of the ultrasonic fingerprint sensor at MWC Shanghai past year. Vivo has not given details on the actual smartphone name, but this model comes with the new fingerprint technology, which can be placed under the display.

Apparently, this is made possible using the Synaptics optical sensor technology that Vivo has been trying to develop for years.

At CES 2018, the company unveiled a production-ready (but, as of yet, unnamed) smartphone that has both a near-borderless display as well as a fingerprint reader, but the scanner itself is nowhere to be seen.

"We are very excited to make it available to consumers soon", the firm's Alex Feng noted. However, Vivo says it will announce the mystery handset early this year. Once the phone is unlocked, it goes away and allows the user to enjoy the whole display. However, the sensor wasn't as responsive as Vivo would have liked. The concept behind the new technology is actually not that different from how other fingerprint scanners worked.

It's a similar story with Samsung's latest flagship smartphones, although it has shifted the fingerprint sensor to the rear of its devices rather than dispense with it completely. Rumor mills were earlier speculating an under the screen fingerprint sensor for the iPhone X. As we all know the iPhone X got a Face ID feature and ditched the Fingerprint Sensor (TouchID) altogether. The company has posted a subliminal image on its social media accounts that points towards an announcement at the ongoing CES 2018. Then, in November, Synaptics announced its Clear ID in-display fingerprint sensors, and said a "top five" smartphone OEM would use it in 2018.

Vivo has confirmed that the smartphone is ready for mass-production.
