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

Vivo is the first Smartphone Manufacturer to use Under-Display Fingerprint Scanner Vivo's in-display fingerprint sensor shows the future of smartphone biometrics

Just as promised, Vivo finally pulled the wraps off the first phone with fingerprint scanner embedded in the display itself today. The company said a “Tier 1” manufacturer would introduce the first phone with the tech at CES 2018.

Back in June a year ago, 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. By launching the smartphone at CES 2018, Vivo will become the first company ever to launch a smartphone with fingerprint sensor underneath the display panel. The sensor will illuminate the finger, which will be used to scan the prints. 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.

Samsung 146-inch Modular MicroLED TV is The Wall
Put more simply, "modular" means that you could customize this set to be even larger (or smaller) than 146 inches. That sounds a rather nebulous but hopefully we can see more specific details as specific TVs are released.


Most players have eliminated side bezels on their smartphones like Samsung with its Galaxy S8, Note 8 devices, LG with its G6, V30+, Xiaomi with its Mi Mix and Mi Mix 2.

At the time when Face recognition technology is replacing the fingerprint sensor, Vivo wants to revolutionize the fingerprint sensor again. But now, Vivo is there at CES with the groundbreaking technology. 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. In all likelihood, Vivo will opt for an under display fingerprint sensor for the bottom half of the display. Vivo claims that the latest fingerprint scanning technology delivers a whole new mobile experience by enabling users to unlock their smartphone through one-touch fingerprint scanning directly on the smartphone display, while solving the industry's challenge of providing a better and more convenient fingerprint authentication experience in future smartphones. Ever since the Apple's iPhone X renders started came out, the device was expected to launch with an in-screen fingerprint scanner, unfortunately, it didn't.
