Vivo showcases phone with in-display fingerprint sensor at CES 2018

Vivo mobile phone with Synaptics in-display fingerprint sensor

Under display fingerprint sensor is a technology that has been long expected to arrive as smartphone manufactures bring out edge-to-edge displays. This latest fingerprint scanning tech from Synaptics enables users to unlock their smartphone through one-touch fingerprint scanning directly on the smartphone's display. A fingerprint sensor is more practical.

The work towards bezel-less display is growing at the fast pace as all the necessary steps are being taken.

"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".

It's been one of the most hotly rumored new smartphone features of the past few months, and now we've finally got to see it in action, on a proper handset that's due to launch in the coming months. Godfrey let us play with the phone and, honestly, it works like a magic. "We are very excited to make it available to consumers soon", said Alex Feng, Senior Vice President, Vivo.

Not exactly a household name in the Western smartphone business, Vivo is big enough in China that its description as a top five brand by Synaptics was in fact accurate, at least for a little while.

It supports various usage scenarios beyond unlocking the smartphone, and is only activated when needed. "It will be realized more subtly under the screen, behind the metal shell, or even in the frame", Vivo told Engadget in an exclusive interview on the sidelines of MWC, Shanghai. When fingerprint recognition is not required, the graphic of the fingerprint will be invisible and will not ruin the overall visual experience.

For all the phone enthusiasts out there, the best and the most exciting news is that this technology exists, and it works. Users will have the opportunity to authenticate payments as well as authenticate any other action directly relating to traditional finger-scanning technology.

At CES here, a Chinese vendor is showing off a smartphone built with a fingerprint reader that's hidden behind the display. Vivo, a Chinese smartphone manufacturer, has already announced the launch of the first-ever fingerprint scanner that is built into the display of the smartphone at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES), which is now going on in Las Vegas till 12th Jan 2018.
