I tried the first phone with an in-display fingerprint sensor

Synaptics unveiled the first in-display fingerprint scanner late previous year and the company also revealed that the first phone to sport the new technology would would be launched at CES 2018, in Las Vegas.

Breaking away from the conventional fingerprint technologies, Chinese smartphone player Vivo has displayed a new technology wherein the fingerprint scanner can be placed somewhere on the display screen itself, and not as a dedicated scanner, either on the front bezel or at the back.

Trump To Face Off With Lawmakers On DACA As Shutdown Talk Looms
Democrats want to protect undocumented people who immigrated illegally into the United States as children, known as "Dreamers". Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer of NY blamed the White House, not Senate Republicans, for hampering the immigration talks.

While this is expected to make headlines, it won't be the first time for Vivo. As we are moving towards smartphones with near bezel-less displays, consumers have been expecting under display fingerprint sensors to become a thing as many are not in favour of rear mounted sensors.

The company had already demonstrated their under-display fingerprint sensor earlier on a prototype model. So, there is no need for a physical button. If Vivo successfully launches a smartphone with in-display fingerprint scanner, it will be leaving behind giants like Google, Apple and Samsung in terms of innovation. This may be true as this phone was earlier spotted online with an under-display fingerprint sensor. 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. It has been designed for smartphones with infinity displays. According to a press statement from the company, this smartphone with the new fingerprint scanner technology is "ready-to-produce".

Stay tuned on Gizbot for more updates on 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", said Alex Feng, Senior Vice President, Vivo. The latest fingerprint scanning technology will enable users to unlock their smartphone through one-touch fingerprint scanning directly on the smartphone display.
