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

Vivo in-display fingerprint scanning phone ready for production

We already knew that Vivo is the company that partnered with Synaptics to launch the first smartphone in the world with a fingerprint sensor under the display, and CES 2018 confirmed it.

The fingerprint scanner tech nearly similar to the one Synaptics worked with Samsung previous year for S8 but it wasn't ready for production.

In December, manufacturing company Synaptics announced that it's created a technology allowing fingerprint scanners to be placed under displays. Exactly when that will be, Vivo said they will make the announcement about that bit of information early 2018.

CES 2018: Vivo demonstrates World's first In-Screen fingerprint scanner smartphone.

The Vivo phone, sporting an all-screen design is on display at the show, and The Verge was able to test Synaptics's Clear ID fingerprint sensor. This technology is being considered as the future of fingerprint scanning in smartphones. The smartphone is a demonstration of the company's continued commitment to providing its consumers an extraordinary user experience. Fingerprint recognition has always been one of the most common and well-known biometrics used to secure smartphones. The only difference I experienced was that the Vivo handset was slower - both to learn the contours of my fingerprint and to unlock once I put my thumb on the on-screen fingerprint prompt - but not so much as to be problematic. It can also be used to authenticate payments.

We've been hearing about in-display fingerprint sensors for quite a while.

The showcasing of the world's first in-display fingerprint scanning smartphone ready for mass-production marks a significant leap forward in the industry's development, taking users' smartphone experience to a new level.

Even with Jamie Vardy injured, the Nigeria worldwide could only get 10 minutes in Leicester City's frustrating goalless draw away at Fleetwood Town .

The in-display fingerprint sensor is developed for OLED display panels with thin bezels with 18:9 aspect ratio and above devices. However, Vivo has tapped Synaptics for the latest optical scanner, instead of Qualcomm's ultrasonic scanning technology.

To begin with, the new Vivo smartphone with fingerprint sensor on the display will be made available in China followed by other markets.

If you want to get Clear ID into your hands, the Vivo device will be hard to come by in the United States (unless you're into the import game), but we'll certainly be on the lookout for other Android OEMs to incorporate this exciting tech.
