Vivo unveils first in-display fingerprint smartphone at CES 2018

Vivo unveils first in-display fingerprint smartphone at CES 2018

It is showing the achievement at CES. We believe the Synaptics' backed new in-screen fingerprint scanners will allow Vivo (and other manufacturers) to design smartphones with even smaller bezels.

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

Back in June past year, at MWC Shanghai 2017, chip maker Qualcomm introduced on-screen fingerprint scanner, and later, Chinese smartphone brand Vivo also showed off a prototype smartphone with on-screen fingerprint scanning technology. According to a press statement from the company, this smartphone with the new fingerprint scanner technology is "ready-to-produce". Once she placed her fingerprint on the lit-up sensor, the phone unlocked and the on-screen sensor disappeared, leaving her to enjoy the full-screen view of the Vivo phone.

If you want to get Clear ID into your hands, the Vivo device will be hard to come by in the USA (unless you're into the import game), but we'll certainly be on the lookout for other Android OEMs to incorporate this exciting tech. However, CNET notes that since the new technology is expensive it will be first made available in premium smartphones. Vivo is relying on the optical fingerprint sensor from Synaptics, which had announced this technology towards the end of 2017. Once again, once you need to pay something, and the payment solution supports fingerprint scanners, that fingerprint image will pop up on the display, and let you place your finger on it.

The UN's International Organisation for Migration ( IOM ) describes the Mediterranean Sea as the world's deadliest border. Libya descended into chaos following the 2011 uprising that toppled and killed longtime dictator Moammar Gadhafi.

As expected, Vivo just unveiled world's first smartphone with in-display fingerprint scanner based on the ultrasonic sensor.

In a flourish that I particularly enjoyed, placing your finger on the sensor produces a brief flash of lightning on the screen, as if your touch is summoning the phone to life. If you may remember, the Vivo Xplay 7 was leaked with under display fingerprint sensor.

He shared: "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". Marked as the Clear ID FS9500 optical in-display fingerprint scanner, the new authentication technology might be seen in Vivo flagships smartphone in the early half of this year.
