Vivo's Groundbreaking Fingerprint Sensor is Changing the Smartphone World

"The company emphasized the solution's capability of accommodating full-size displays that take up nearly the entire front face of a mobile device, and the convenience of maintaining a front-facing fingerprint scanning system with respect to the user experience". As far as we know - the rumored device to break for the western countries will be the Samsung Galaxy S9, to accept a fingerprint, rather than just a "home button" zone. The prompt can appear even when the screen is off, and will disappear when it is no longer needed. There is a fingerprint animation on the display, you place the finger and the under-display CMOS image sensor light up your fingerprint, capture an image of it, then unlocks your device.

Instead, it's Chinese firm Vivo which has beaten the likes of Apple and Samsung to the punch, and we got hands-on with its yet-to-be-named smartphone at CES 2018 in Las Vegas.

However, in the past year or so, smartphone manufacturers have adopted a new type of technology that has made it harder to deploy a fingerprint reader in the phone. The prototype of the Vivo's under-display fingerprint technology includes Synaptics in-display fingerprint reader.
